April 2013 Dividend Income Update

Time for my favorite article, a dividend income update. Here is the dividend update for April 2013:

Dividends Received

  • WMT: $9.87
  • MO: $15.40
  • PM: $30.60
Total dividend income for April: $55.87

I haven't bought any stocks this month, very busy month for me outside investing. But it was a busy month for my stocks! Five of my positions decided to hike their dividend:

CVX hiked its dividend from $0.90 to $1.00, an  11.11% raise.
IBM hiked its dividend from $0.85 to $0.95, an  11.76% raise.
JNJ hiked its dividend from $0.61 to $0.66, an  8.20% raise.
KMI hiked its dividend from $0.37 to $0.38, a 2.70% raise and a 18.75% YoY raise.
PG hiked its dividend from $0.562 to $0.6015, a 7.03% raise.

I anticipated all these increases, no real surprises. So that's pretty nice to say the least, I love the predictability dividend-growth-stocks have! I like it when my income goes up, but I don't have to do anything for it. I just put some capital in place and I receive an ever growing income stream from it. I love it.

Thanks for reading.
