Last month was my best month on record with a total of $468 in dividends between my retirement (non 401k) and taxable accounts.  I am overall happy with the dividends paid and increases so far this year. 

This includes 4 increases this month with Target (TGT) being the lowest at 3.33%.  It is still above inflation and the stock is still attractively priced.  Look at Brinker (EAT), the stock is priced right and they bumped their dividend by 12%.  While I have some capital losses this year regarding them I don't plan on selling unless the dividend is cut.  In fact I wish I had more capital to invest in them.

YOY for this month I saw a 33% increase in dividends.  Some of it from purchases but most from excellent dividend growth stocks that keep paying me more while I sit and type up this article.


Looking at the chart it has been 7 years since I bought my first dividend paying stock.  The biggest thing to note is that it takes more time to grow when you invest little capital.  This is mostly because the bulk of my savings goes into my 401k retirement plan each year.  Only when I switch jobs could I roll it over into an IRA and invest it the way I want it (dividend growth stocks).  I have seen other bloggers also include dividends from their 401ks so I might start including that as well

Happy dividend collecting,
Dividend Family Guy

Long on all stocks mentioned in this article.
