The nice thing about dividends is they keep coming even when you have busy months.  That has left me with little time for investing and catching up on all the great articles in the FI and DGI communities.  The restructuring of my portfolio and additional contributions has led to a 26% increase YOY.  That translates into $444.21 dollars for the month with a total of $728.85 for the year.

Dividend increases from ADM, BHP/BBL, ORI and TROW helped spur additional dollars into my pocket.  I am concerned with the huge jump up by BHP/BBL but it is still only at its previous 2008 dividend levels.  My whopping 2 shares of each will probably remain so as I don't know when they will cut the dividend again.  And while I do love the ORI the dividend growth this time around was only 1.1%.  OLD REPUBLIC, that wasn't a very nice raise you gave me.  Please SHARE the wealth.  I doubt the board will read that but it never hurts to try.


My goal is to still contribute $11,000 to my (and my wife) IRA's this year.  I am already half way there.  The bulk of my savings will be in my 401k when I become eligible in June.  The downside is none of the funds they offer are geared towards dividends so we will see if that helps boost mine later this year.

Happy dividend gathering,

Dividend Family Guy

  1. Looks like a very solid performance for the month of March. Though that ORI raise was not large they consistently offer a high current yield. As usual it's nice to see quite a few names in common paying us last month. Keep it up!

  2. Nice month DFG. I am hoping to catch up to that income at some point.

  4. Hi DFG,
    Congrats on your increases - 26% is awesome. It's great to see the snowball back in action and gathering speed.
    Best wishes,

    1. Thanks DL. Can't wait until I cross the 50% barrier. Then things will really start to move fast.
