June Dividend Update

Another month is at its close, and its time to update my dividend income for the month.  This month wasn't that great compared to others, and I think getting The March-June-September-December dividends higher is going to be a priority in 2013.  Without further ado:

Taxable Account Dividends:

DUK - 21.25
ERH - 63.30
O - 10.21

Total - 94.76

Roth IRA Dividends:

ARR - 111.00
STB - 18.09

Total - 129.09

Overall Total:  223.85

Overall, not a bad month, but I think starting next year I do want to focus on getting more dividend stocks that pay during this month.  Next week, I 'm going to haul out my "goals" post from January and do a checkup to see where I am 6 months into the year.

Recent Purchase

It was time to make my monthly purchase for June.  I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but I purchased more Linn Energy (LINE).  I picked up 33 shares at $36.07.  This purchase will provide an additional $95.70 a year in dividend income.  Not a huge purchase this month, due to the fact that I don't get a lot of dividends in June, as you'll see next week in my June dividend income update.  Overall, I'm happy to add more Linn Energy to my portfolio, and I'll probably add a touch more by the end of the year.  Thoughts?

May Dividend Update

Well, another month has come and gone, and its time for another monthly dividend update.  It was a great month for dividends, and I've experienced another increase compared to last quarter.  Without further ado, my May dividends:

ERH - $63.30
LINE - $580.73
O - $10.21
CLMT - $312.48

Total for taxable account = $966.72

ARR - $111.00
STB -$18.40

Total for ROTH IRA = $129.40

Total May Dividends = 1096.12

I was able to go over 1000 for the month in total dividends!  I don't really consider my Roth dividends as part of my dividend income though, so for me the milestone will be when the taxable account only is over 1000, which could happen as early as next quarter.
