Dividend income & raise - July 2017

July is usually a slow month for me.
This year was no different. However, I'm still very satisfied with the year over year growth.

Dividend income

KO $15.54
GE $9.60
CSCO $8.99
GPS $10.35
VIAB $4.60

Total July: $49.08 (pre tax)
Net received: $39.71

Comparison with last year (gross)
July 2016: $39.71
July 2017: $49.08

This is a 23.6% YoY increase. Could be better, could be worse, right? :)

Dividend raises

OHI increaseed their quarterly dividend from $0.63 to $0.64.
This is a 1.59% increase. Due to this change, my YOC is now at 7.65%.

Update on goals
My goal is to receive $1000 in gross dividends in 2017.
With month 7/12 being over, I'm curious to see how I'm donig.

Gross dividends received so far: $534.15, while it should have been $583.33.
That means I'm currently behind schedule, but with consistent investing (and blogging..) I should be able to reach the goal!

How was your July?

Thanks for reading!


  1. Great results. July is slow for all of us especially after a June high. Great year over year gains which means you are headed in the right direction. I'll take a 23.6% year over year gain any time.

    1. Hey Keith,

      Thanks for your comment!
      Still reading most of your blogpost and I'm happy to see you're doing the same :)

      Best wishes, DfS

  2. Great results! YoY grows fine, so you are doing well. We are all in the same boat. My July income is tradtionially the worst of all 12 months. We just have to make the gross of our income in other months I guess. :)

    1. Hi P2F,

      My January was even worse! However.. September and December are looking a lot better for sure.

      Have a nice day. DfS

  3. D4S -

    I own CSCO and may have just purchased more this week... nice job and looking forward to reading your progress for time to come!


    1. Thanks for your continued support Lanny. Your channel have grown by a lot recently, but you're still supporting small players like myself. Much aprpeciated!

  4. Good job, DfS -- a 23% year-over-year is fantastic. Keep up the good work and happy investing!

  5. This is a very interesting web page and I have enjoyed reading many of the articles and posts about dividend stocks, keep up the good work and hope to read some more interesting content in the future. Absolutely this article is incredible. And it is so beautiful.
