Dividend Update: June 2017

It’s time for my favorite type of post: a tally of the dividends I received in the prior month. Given my strategy of DGI, it is really the dividend payouts that I care about. For each of the companies I invest in, I like to see a steady and growing stream of dividend payouts.

So how did I do in June?

Last month 24 companies sent me a dividend payout, adding up to a total of $295.

Receiving almost $300 a month is great – and I expect to cross the $300 line by September of this year. It’s pretty amazing how fast my dividends have grown. After all, I am only in my third year of investing and we are already talking >$3,000 per year in received dividends.

With these growing monthly dividend payouts, I am now convinced that I can attain my goal of receiving 3,000 in dividend payments this year.

The following table shows the tickers of the companies that made a June 2017 dividend payout to my portfolio. It features the dividend amount I received and any change in payout as compared to the last payout moment.


Three companies – out of the 24 featured in the table above – decided to increase their dividend payouts to me.

Unilever (UL) rebuffed Warren Buffett’s and 3G Capital’s takeover bid – and decided to reward their existing shareholders with a nearly 12% increase.

Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) proved once again to be the reliable dividend powerhouse it is with a very decent 5% dividend increase.

The final company in my portfolio that raised their dividend last month is Qualcomm (QCOM). The company is – once again – battling out copyright issues with Apple. I have no idea how it will play out but will happily collect the 7.55% dividend increase.

Comparing the dividend payout of June 2016 to June 2017 (below) shows an increase from $143 to $295- YoY growth of 106%.

  1. Hey TI,

    great progress over the years -Congrats! 300$ in dividend income in a single month is a number you can really work with. Add your savings rate and you’re going full steam ahead. – my dividend income for June was 288$, similar range as yours.


  2. Great job on the YOY increase! You’ve made amazing progress with DGI over the last 3 years. I’m looking forward to seeing you cross over the $300 mark. In regards to my June – I received $4.27 in dividends in last month, which is posted on the blog. I’m looking forward to posting YOY growth rates like this down the road. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    1. Thank you Graham! Yes – looking forward too, and according to my projections I will hit the $300 mark by September. It’s great to see the DGI strategy working. You’ll be seeing some big numbers coming soon too!
