Well, July has come and gone. All I have to say is good riddance. That was an expensive month for me personally. I transitioned into a new position at work. Technically, I’m still in the transition stage. But, that led to unexpected expenses and reduction in income. Things should stabilize by September and I’m hoping that August is an excellent month. But, let me not get ahead of myself. This is my July 2017 Dividend Income Report.
Here we go.
Dividend Income Received
I received the following dividends:
- Coca Cola (KO): $3.14
- Realty Income (O): $2.85
That brings my total to $5.99. Now I know what other investors are referring to when they say they have an “off” month. Well, I’m just getting started in dividend growth investing. I also recently started tracking my dividends this year and so I don’t have a year-to-year comparison to make. But, next year July, I’ll be able to make a year-to-year comparison.
So how does July compare to the rest of the year? Well, it’s the first time I’ve experienced a reduction in dividend income on a month-to-month basis. Not the best of comparisons, I know. But, the good news is, I continue to add shares to my portfolio. The dividend tracker has been updated accordingly.
August is shaping up to be a great month for my projected income in annual dividends. Right now, it’s currently at $204.32, but I hope to more than triple that amount by the end of the year.
This is not going to be a long post. I just wanted to report how the month of July went. How was last month for you? Did your portfolio break any records? Let me know in the comment section below.
