Dividend Income - May 2014

Once a month I will be updating the dividend that I received for that month.

May 2014 Dividends Received:

  • Realty Income Corp. (O) - $4.01
  • American Rlty Cap. PPTYS (ARCP) - $10.83
  • Clorox Company (CLX) - $10.65
  • Kinder Morgan Inc (KMI) - $45.78
  • Procter & Gamble Company (PG) - $9.65
  • Caterpillar Inc (CAT) - $8.40

  • Total dividends for the month of May: $89.32

    One of my many Goals is to receive $2,000 in dividends for this year.

    I am 26% complete in reaching my goal. I hope you guys continue to follow my blog and cheer me on to hit is goal of mine. 

    All of the income that I'm receiving from dividends are all being reinvested. I'm currently reinvesting it all into KMI.

    Also, don't forget to check out my Dividend Income page which shows the total income by month.

    Was May a good month for you?


    1. Congrats on the dividend income, FFD.

      Theres a mistake in your post - says "month of February".

      Best wishes

    2. Hi FFD
      Nice dividend income, keep it going!

      1. Thanks Hawk,

        Next month is looking to be big. :)

    3. Very nice accumulation of dividends. I like how well diversified ypur portfolio looks and I am hoping to follow a similar path. Keep up the great work. Thanks for the update!

      1. Thanks Mongrel,

        I am trying to get any where from 40-50 stocks.

    4. I bet you get there. Just select higher yielding stocks and reinvest them. It is at least my strategy investing into higher yielding stocks such as REITs or MLPs during first part of my accumulation period and later start adding smaller yielding stocks but higher growth. Hard to say which strategy is better, but I believe, that if you create a larger stream of reinvestable income as soon as possible the easier it will be to build your portfolio or I would say faster.

      1. I hope I get there. I want to stick to growth because I have a lot of time now.
