Looking back at my September totals, I see that year over year progress is moving at a nice clip.
The last month or so saw some sells as some REITs were shuttled from our brokerage account.
The market will definitely be higher, lower or flat come New Year's Eve.
The beginning 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. No doubt, these are the best posts to write and read online as it only provides further proof that dividend investing can work overtime and that anyone can create an ever-growing passive income stream. Looking back at my September totals, I see that my year over year progress is moving at a nice clip. Now that three quarters of 2019 are in the books, my annual dividend income picture is looking a lot clearer. With that being said, let's take a look back at my September 2019 dividend income.

First, let's address the huge jump from September last year. As you can see, this was almost exclusively the result of that massive $987.08 dividend from BP which was from Mrs. DivHut's account and now part of our total combined joint accounts which we consolidated earlier this year when we moved to Schwab. If you have been following my blog for a while, you know that I never owned any energy companies but clearly, that has changed now. Not sure why Mrs. DivHut went so heavy into BP, but I do know that it is a long-term holding of hers. Either way, it is providing a nice boost to our annual income.
Also, the last month or so saw some sells as some REITs were shuttled from our brokerage account. Now only our IRAs hold REITs.
So, there you have it. The proof of our dividend investing strategy rests in these real results. After all, dividends don't lie. It's real cash being returned to investors. With patience and consistency, these results and better can be achieved. I'm excited to see what the final quarter of 2019 will bring. All I know for certain is that the market will definitely be higher, lower or flat come New Year's Eve! In other words, I'll continue with my monthly buys and slowly build up my passive income stream share by individual share and let the experts worry about what might happen.
