Dividend Update: July 2015

The stock market is dropping fast, and I can’t wait to see how much further it corrects. I’ve been buying on the way down and am eager to post about those transactions soon.  I’m looking to add even more by averaging down on any of my holdings below 10% of their cost basis.

September is right around the corner, and I still haven’t posted about my dividend payouts from July; so here we go.  I received dividends from 7 of my 26 holdings during the month totaling $118.85.   Most of them got automatically reinvested, and here’s a snapshot of my payout activity:2015_JULY_DR2July’s total dividends of $118.85 grew 7.46% over last quarter’s $110.60 in April.  Going back further, that increase was 179.65% over last year’s $42.50.    Here’s my updated dividend payout chart:2015_JULY_DPI’m aiming to receive $2,050 in dividends this year.  After seven months, I’m sitting at $892.05:

2015_JULY_DRGTwo businesses I own announced dividend raises during the month and added $4.73 to my annual forward income.  Thank you to Kinder Morgan (KMI) and Omega Healthcare Investors (OHI) for the following dividend increases:2015_JULY_DILast year in July, I had only received $367.01 in total lifetime dividends.  One year later, they’ve increased 370.91% to a new total of $1,728.30.  This is fast growing income, and here’s an updated chart:2015_JULY_LDI’ve put some serious capital to work by my standards in August and am excited to share it all soon.  Don’t be scared of recent market noise, it’s what we’ve been asking for; so keep those purchases coming and secure those dividends. I know I will be.

How is your August so far?  Have you been buying the dip?

      Thank you much Jason. August is turning out to be better than I thought too in income, it’s all rolling along nicely. You’ve made some killer moves lately and I can’t wait to see what you scoop up next. Take care!

    Better late than never for a dividend income report. Another month, another great job of earning passive income. I see we have a few names in common for the month of July which is always cool to see. Keep up the good work and look forward to your next update.

    Hey Ryan. I like the way you monitor your progress. I love the spreadsheets and charts, it’s a great way to keep track of everything. Will be interesting to see where the market opens in a couple of minutes. I went in on a put order for 100 shares of KO just before close in Friday hoping for the dip to continue. I worked as a bodyguard for 10 years in the industry we probably ran into each other on a movie or show. Best, Devin

      I appreciate all the kind words, Devin. That’s awesome you were a stunt man, I’m more stuck in a edit bay all the day and do post production producing, so we probably didn’t meet on a shoot but you never know. You can’t get much higher quality than KO, congrats. I bought about a hundredth of that amount myself in my Loyal3 account this month, so you’re killing it! It’s fun to watch the market in this turbulence, I’m trying to pace my purchases… It’s tough not to just rush in. So far so good though, I think so many awesome companies are trading at very fair prices. Appreciate you checking in 🙂

    Keep it up Ryan! Crushing it YOY and I feel that your income will continue to snowball at a quickening rate.

    Hopefully you can take full advantage of the current pullback too. Unbelievable sale going on right now for sure, hopefully it sticks around long enough for us all to enjoy it.

    Congrats on the progress, that dividend snowball is definitely getting bigger and rolling down the hill faster. We should all take advantage of the current pullback. 🙂

      Thank you very much, Tawcan. I’m taking advantage for sure, I was a bit early throughout the month but invested about $8K so far which is a new record for me. I see lots of dividends in our future my friend…hehe. Cheers!

      That sounds like such an awesome trip, Mike. Hope you got to relax and enjoy it. It’s been an interesting week in the market for sure! I’ll be curious to hear if you’re buying anything. I’ve been buying a ton over the month so be ready to watch even more future progress 😉 Happy to hear from you!

    So far I’ve sat out the dip but that’s not because I don’t want to be buying, just that cash is really tight right now and I’ve got a lot of expenses to pay off that I wasn’t expecting to be needing to pay. But hopefully we’ll get better prices over the coming month or two as cash starts flowing back into my accounts so I can get back to investing more heavily. There’s a lot of good valuations out there now and I can’t wait to make some moves to buy up some excellent companies.

    Excellent news on your dividends for July. Great growth and what’s really impressive is how quickly you’ve built up your dividend stream.

      Thanks and it’s great to hear from you JC. I feel for you on the cash being tight, especially with how passionate you are about investing. I hope you take pride though with the great job you’ve done with your finances for the long term over there. You’ll be set with or without this correction, though I really hope it lasts a while and goes much lower too. I’m a little shocked at some of these low prices I haven’t seen since I started investing a year and a half ago. I appreciate the comment!
