  • Looking back at the previous month and see how much passive dividend income the portfolio generated.
  • The portfolio saw a 39.9% year-over-year increase and hit that coveted four-digit milestone.
  • The proof of our dividend investing strategy rests in these real results, even with big stinkers in the mix. This is why we diversify!

The start of every month is exciting for all dividend income investors as we look back at the previous month and see how much passive dividend income our portfolios generated. August was exciting as ever, as my year-over-year numbers continue to highlight the trifecta magic of dividend investing, which includes adding fresh capital, dividend raises and basic compounding to create an ever-increasing passive income stream. Even if I stopped adding fresh capital today and every dividend stock I owned kept all distributions flat, without a single raise, my passive income stream would continue to grow. With that being said, let's take a look back at my August 2019 dividend income.

Dividend income from my taxable account totaled $702.57 up from $383.68 an increase of 83.1% from August of last year.

Dividend income from my ROTH account totaled $240.86 down from $252.05 a decrease of -4.4% from this time last year. No biggie here as my TD dividend came in towards the end of July rather than August compared to last year.

Dividend income from my IRA account totaled $184.66 up from $170.45 from this time last year, an increase of 8.3%.

Grand total for the month of August: $1,128.09 an increase of 39.9% from August 2018.

I’m an early 40′s Internet entrepreneur that launched several dot coms with varying success in each. At the very least my living has been made online for the past 18 years and at the most I had a fun time in each venture.I began seriously investing for dividend income around 2007 when my business at the time was literally falling off a cliff, as most of the world was starting too as well, when my need for another income stream became more apparent. I have always known the benefits of dividends from my very first stock purchase back in 1988 but wasn't yet sold on the concept of tying up my money indefinitely purely for a dividend income stream. It was around that time that I learned about Dividend Aristocrats and Dividend Champions when it all just made sense. I could literally see the effects of compounding dividends from these select companies and thought a nice diversified portfolio could provide me with a decent to excellent income stream decades down the road.
