2018.5 Half Year Recap

Good Morning fellow investors,

I know its July, but I wanted to take a moment and share how well the dividend growth has been going and compare that to last years results. I know lately I have been seeing monthly dividend numbers in the $10 and have been getting discouraged, seeing this years results by quarter compared to last years really opened my eyes to how quickly I was growing. In the chart below you can see that this year we are 86% better for Q1 and 69% better for Q2 pretty AWESOME!!

Total Prior Year Growth
Q1 Total  $ 21.86  $     11.74 86.20%
Q2 Total  $ 26.38  $     15.57 69.43%
Q3 Total  $        –  $     18.92 -100.00%
Q4 Total  $        –  $     20.57 -100.00%
Total  $ 48.24  $     66.80 -27.78%

Since I have started this journey I have invested $1754, that amount is now worth $2141 and grows by dividends and reinvesting those funds. The next chart I would like to share is 2017 and 2018 thus far by month. You can clearly see that every single month now generates more dividend income than last year.

2017 2018 YoY Growth
January  $   6.65  $       9.98 50.08%
February  $   0.98  $       3.67 274.49%
March  $   4.11  $       8.21 99.76%
April  $   7.08  $     14.09 99.01%
May  $   2.18  $       5.21 138.99%
June  $   6.31  $       7.08 12.20%

The next step for me is to keep plugging away. I will continue to update you all as we progress and I hope you do the same in the comment section. I’m a ways off of being able to live off these dividends but it is moving in the right direction!

Thanks for reading

-Stephen
