How Did everyone do in Q2.
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.
Following are the dividends received for the month of May 2019. Total of 13 companies paid me this month for a total of $374.23. With T being the biggest contributor . AAPL a close second for this month.
