May 2017 Dividend Summary





  • HCP --- $115.68
  • OHI --- $101.80
  • VZ --- $58.74
  • BMY --- $29.36
  • ABT --- $26.99
  • ABBV --- $25.60
  • PG --- $20.85
  • NEA --- $16.55
  • AAPL --- $15.98
  • GIS --- $14.40

Total income received in my taxable account is $425.95.

Another pretty solid "off" month in my opinion. REITs accounted for over half of the income so I need to continue trying balance things out. I should receive much higher totals from VZ, GIS, and T in the next quarter which will be nice.

May was a pretty good month of capital additions as well and I am now sitting on just over $9600 in forward dividends.

  1. Awesome job. It is easy to get those Reits up there but as always need diversification. I have the same thing trying to bring up others so it balances out. Keep it up

    1. D&h,

      It seems like the 2,5,8,11 months are telco and REIT heavy. I guess it all evens out throughout the quarter!

  2. Nicely done. That's $425.95 worth of new dividend paying companies in this next month if you decide to deploy it.

  4. Solid indeed for an "off" month. Nice to see a handful of names in common paying us in May. Now we have the fun June reports to look forward to. Keep it going strong!

    1. Lanny,

      Getting closer to the 10k mark. Probably taking it easy during the summer months though. Just letting the DRIP do the work for a couple of months!

  6. MDP,
    Love the growth. Share a few names there with you, AAPL, OHI, ABT, and VZ. Welcome to have the company. The 10k mark is just huge in my mind.

    1. DG,

      Yeah, I'm excited about $10k too. I may take a little breather and slow down a bit on my buys, but I should hit the number in the next couple of months.

  7. Nice work MDP, escpecially for an "off" month as you call it. Good call on diversifying when high on REITs.

    1. Mr Robot,

      Thanks! Yeah I'll feel better when the REITs around down to around 20% of my May dividend payment.

  8. All of them are great businesses you own there! Solid income it is, and many more years of secure payments to come!

    I'm looking to add some more REITs, maybe OHI and HCP will be good. We'll wait to see if the interest will continue to rise, and see if it would send some of the REITs down.

    1. vivianne,

      I too would like to own a bit more of HCP and OHI, but my REIT percentages are a little high right now. Hopefully they can drop 5-10% and I'll gladly dip back into them.

  9. $425 for one month is excellent MDP. I'm just starting out and my 2017 goal is to hit $200 in one year. Although I'm likely to hit that soon, I'm no where near $425 in one month. Wow.

    I have a couple of the companies that paid you dividends in my portfolio. Namely ABBV, PG, AAPL. I'm also considering adding VZ, HCP and GIS.

    Anyway, great report and looking forward to more.
