This has been a rough year financially for me, so I haven’t paid as much attention to this blog for the past several months. I just went through and back filled the dividend income posts since March. We’re all caught up now, so without further ado, here’s September!
I think it’s important to celebrate wins on the path to your ultimate goal, no matter how small. Sharing my dividend income results with you readers gives you some insight to what is possible as you begin your journey.
My ultimate goal is to be able to live off of the passive dividend income from my investments, so I can just stay at home and play video games. Here is the money I made in September 2015 without lifting a finger.
WMT – $5.95
CVX – $9.83
EMR – $7.64
MCD – $9.52
BP – $30.86
LMT – $7.61
Compared to the dividends I earned in June ($70.64), I earned almost a whole $1 more just due to compounding. I find this fascinating because none of these companies have raised their dividend, but I’m earning more free money than I did 3 months ago.
March, June, September, and December are my big months, and most of these companies are due to raise their dividends for December’s payout. So I’m really looking forward to seeing what my December income looks like.
