June 2013 Dividend Income Update

Small correction in the market this month. Mostly due to Fed chairman Ben Bernanke speaking, he will stop pumping $85 billion in the economy somewhere in 2014-2015, at least that's the plan.

I don't think much about it. I keep accumulating shares in wonderful companies that give me an ever increasing amount of dividends. This is the plan, what the Fed is planning to do won't change that plan.

Day to day fluctuations in the paper price of my portfolio has no effect on my happiness. My time horizon is decades, I can ride out the volatility.

Here's the dividend update for June 2013:

Dividends Received

  • INTC: $11.25
  • WFC: $25.20
  • WMT: $9.87
  • AFL: $20.65
  • PSX: $8.44
  • NSC: $7.50
  • CVX: $11.00
  • IBM: $7.60
  • JNJ: $11.22
  • MSFT: $12.19
  • MCD: $21.56
Total dividend income for June: $146.48

First time ever I received more than a $100 in dividends in a month! Nice milestone there. It's mostly due to the fact that 11 of my 22 positions pay out in June.

My 2013 goal is $1000, so far I'm 46.86% of the way there, my progress is tracked here.

Halfway through the year, almost at 50% at my goal. I'm pretty confident I'm gonna hit the $1000 mark. I'm gonna make a rough estimate and say my 2013 dividend income will be somewhere around $1050-$1150. Time will tell if I'm right!

Thanks for reading


  1. Grats on your big month, I noticed WMT moved their div date up, I was expecting it to be in July. That increased my June totals too. Keep up the good work.

  2. Yeap, this is the beauty of dividend investing. We actually are happy when the stocks go on sale, we can buy more cheap - and the market was (and still is) way over high, so more price drop would be actually welcome...
