It’s time for my favorite type of post: a tally of the dividends I received in the prior month.
So how did I do in June?
Last month 28 companies sent me a dividend payout, adding up to a total of $494.
Even better - June almost turned into the first $500 month. Truly the power of dividend growth investing.
This bodes really well for the upcoming September and December months, which are, together with March and June, the ‘best’ dividend months in the year.
The following table shows the tickers of the companies that made an June 2018 dividend payout to my portfolio. It features the dividend amount I received and any change in payout as compared to the last payout moment.
The fact that 28 companies sent me dividend checks is great in and of itself. But out of those 28 there were 5 companies who decided to raise their pay-outs.
Rockwell Automation (ROK) provided me with the largest dividend boost, a little over 10%. Buybacks, strategic IoT investments and future dividend growth should make for happy shareholders in this industrial powerhouse.
Comparing the dividend payout of June 2017 to June 2018 shows an increase of $292 to $494- a Year-on-Year (YoY) growth of 69%.
This YoY growth is featured in the table below.
