You are currently viewing Dividend Income Report: July 2019

I hope the summer has been kind to you and you had a good July. For me, it’s been a good month. The summer heat hasn’t been quite as bad as previous years (upper 80s to lower 90s at worst), but July has still been uncomfortably warm-hot. I don’t know why (maybe the weather?), but in the past few weeks my personal productivity has noticeably increased and I seem to be getting more stuff done. Hopefully I can maintain this momentum and keeping checking off items on my to-do list.

So how did my July dividends add up? Let’s do the numbers and see:

AWP $ 55.00
BGY $ 33.80*
CHW $ 21.00*
CIK $ 22.50*
CLM $ 41.06
CODI $144.00
DHY $ 33.25
DMF $ 7.53
DSM $ 19.25
EAD $ 9.45
EDF $ 45.00*
EHI $ 25.20
EXG $ 92.40*
NCV $ 36.75
NRZ $160.00
PFN $ 36.00
PNNT $144.00
RA $ 69.85
ZTR $ 33.90
TOTAL $1029.94

* Includes Return of Capital

YES!! Another $1K+ month! It feels great to finally break the past few months’ accursed “just short of the next $100 increment” that had been so aggravating.

July also has some good news and slightly better news to report. The good news was that there were no dividend cuts to report (Yaaay!!), and the better news is there was a (very small) dividend increase. EHI raised its monthly dividend of 6.2 cents per share to 6.3 cents per share. This will increase my projected average monthly dividend income by $0.40. That’s certainly not much to brag about, but I’ll take it anyway.

Hitting $1K made July a pretty good month for dividends and the small dividend increase for EHI was the (very small) cherry on top. A good month indeed.

    Cha-Ching! Nice breaking the $1K mark on a quarter starting month! That is impressive! Congrats DQ! We had a heat wave here in NYC making the temperature feel 107 degrees. That was a tough 2 mile walk to work and back for me, but I made sure I drank lots of water, lol. Either way, the summer heat has not melted the dividend snowball. It just keeps on growing! 🙂

      Thanks MDD! It’s always a great feeling breaking $1K. I look forward to when it becomes so routine it makes me yawn (“$1100 this month? Meh.”). It wasn’t that long ago when a $600 month was cause for celebration, now it has become my lowest expectation. As long as the snowball keeps growing, then it will happen eventually. Yeah, during that July heat wave I think the Pacific Northwest here was the coolest region of the continental US. Finally, you make a good point about financial snowballs being heat resistant (but they are vulnerable to financial meltdowns, like the 2008 financial crisis for example).

    Nice hittging !000.00 twice this year. do you have 3 times in there? keep it up.

      Thanks Doug! So far I’ve only had two $1K months this year in January and July (and I came soooo close in April at $993.91). At the start of the year, I was confident I would have at least four $1K months, but now it will probably just be three. Hopefully I will do better next year.

      Thanks for visiting Financial Nordic! Yes, breaking $1K does feel awesome. And every time a dividend payout arrives in my account, it feels a little like Christmas morning.
