September 2019 is in books and almost you can see the year end .Summer has been brutal here in texas ,last 3 months were extremely hot . This september i hit an high for dividends for the month of the september and i hit 4 digits for september. This month i got paid $1178 from 41 companies. Almost receiving $40 a day which is nice ,it’s like working another 4 hrs at $10.
Finally crossed 5000 in dividends for this year and since i started tracking dividends in 2014 i have crossed 32K in total dividends,got to see if i can cross 35k for the year 2019 and maybe 50k in total dividends received for all years since 2014. These are some high goals.
Big contributor for this month dividends are from the retirement accounts.
Biggest payee in taxable accounts is BBL,i received more than $100.
Compared to last few years this year the growth has slowed down,as i have been not investing like before.
Compared to 2018 dividends increased by 4.9%. Other than Dividend reinvestments no significant investments happened in this month . Waiting for the new 401K to start with the new company so i can start investing in it.
So how did everyone did in september.
Here are the dividends received for the month of August in my account.15 Companies paid dividends during this month and almost $14 a day.Total dividends received this month are $429.86.
T is the biggest contributor for me this month with AAPL close second .Compared with last August this was 54% increase ,i have been adding T for last few quarters and trying to get it 200 Shares.
Due to market fluctuations and some credit card spending to meet spending thresholds for bonus this month ,my Networth reduced by 2.25% .

Half of the year is completed and Here are the dividends received for this month. For 2019 i crossed 1000 Dollars in dividend income 2nd time. 41 Companies Paid me dividend this month.
Compared with 2018 this almost 800 dollars less . This happened due to reshuffling of my Funds in my retirement accounts and smaller dividend payment from RERGX due to no capital gain distribution like last year. Last year my retirement funds provided $1529 vs $576 this year . Some of the funds in my account doesn’t pay dividends.
Overall its not bad ,i like the progress happening in my Funds . Net worth Went up by 4% compared to June 1st.
