Another month in the history books. September was interesting. I’ve been super busy at work, but right now, things have quieted down. But, unfortunately, that’s how my job is. Ups and Downs. Sometimes I’m busy and other times, I am not. Anyway, I’m excited to dive in to see how much dividend income September brought in.
Dividend Growth Investing remains one of my favorite strategies to earn passive income. Despite being busy at work, my dividends were working for me in the background. Though I was focused on various challenges, my money was focused on earning me more money. That’s how I like it.
In September, I received a total of $28.72 in dividends, broken down as follows:
- JNJ —- $8.07
- MMM – $2.79
- O —— $3.28
- XOM — $14.58
Not a lot of companies paid me dividends, but it’s a respectable amount. And, for what it’s worth, it was higher than last month. I realize that month-to-month comparisons are not the greatest, but next year I will definitely be making yearly comparisons.
Forward Annual Dividends
I’m happy to report that I broke the $500 mark in my forward annual dividends. At the time of this writing, my forward annual dividend income is $572.23. My annual goal is to surpass $700 in dividend income. I don’t think I’ll make it, but we will see. I am very confident that I should be able to surpass the $600 mark by the end of the year.
Finally, no new stocks were added to my dividend portfolio this month.
How was September for you? Did you break any records? Let me know by commenting below.
