DFG April 2018 Dividend Income


The goal of dividend growth investing is to create an income stream from many companies that increase their dividend each year.  To protect the income stream they should also be a diversified set of stocks across the many sectors of the industry.  Let's see what companies worked for me and deposited those profits into my accounts.

Account
Company
Dividend
Brokerage
General Electric Company
 $            0.48
IRA
The Coca-Cola Co
 $            9.75
IRA
Universal Health Realty Income Trust
 $         16.63
IRA
Whitestone REIT
 $            9.50
IRA
Cardinal Health Inc
 $            9.25
IRA
Gladstone Investment Corporation
 $            6.70
IRA
Cardinal Health Inc
 $         46.24


 $         98.55

Gladstone Investment increased their dividends which I received for the month.  It was only $.003 per quarter but I will take it.  April is usually a small month for me as most of the companies I hold paid last month.  Still it was a great month compared to last year (only $19.14.)  That is a decent 415% increase mostly from the addition of Cardinal Health.

I hope you had a great month of dividends.  I look forward to reading your updates.

Regards,
DFG

  1. Perhaps low month for you, but growth from last year was insane. That's what it's all about. We shared KO as a common payer this month.

  3. Hi DFG. Nice progress this month, and this year. The YoY growth is there.
    I share CAH with you. They've had a rough go of it lately. Any thoughts of adding more?

    1. Hi ED. Not sure if I will add more or diversify. My gut says diversify. Later, DFG
