May 2016 Dividends and Passive Income Progress


It's time to report my May progress.

In May besides my monthly Loyal3  investments I purchased

10 shares of AAPL - Apple
21 shares of VLO - Valero Energy.

Dividends received in April 2016:
AAPL$1.20
BMO$16.82
DRI$17.56
KMI$8.73
NE$0.65
PG$17.45
RY$11.69
T$13.89
TD$15.77
YUM$0.34
Total$104.10

This is 23% decrease comparing to May 2015.

I analysed why this happened and this decrease was due to decrease in KMI and NE dividends.

Here 2014/2015 vs 2016:

Additional passive income or free money from different financial institutions:


Interest:                                                          $13.80
Points AMEX                                                  $69.78
Points Discover                                              $14.03
JC Penney/Kroger/Academy                          $25.00
Ebates - get paid for shopping online            $23.00

You might noticed that my points from AMEX is higher than usual. This was due an Amex special offer to cash your points with 20% off, which I used and it gave me extra $50 in gift cards. 
             
My total financial passive income for the month of May was $249.71


At this moment my goal is to have $1k in monthly passive income from dividends and other financial institutions.

  2. Thanks for sharing your recent passive income stream. Always happy to be a fellow shareholder with you in those large Canadian banks among other names too. Your year over year growth continues to look nice on a month to month basis. Clearly, you are doing the right thing. Keep it up!

  3. HHWG,

    No worries on your monthly dividend income right now in terms of comparing to prior year - KMI stung a lot of us - just keep the head up and keep pushing forward, stay consistent and stretch yourself!

  4. Wouldn't worry too much about a month-to-month fluctuation in dividends. What matters overall is the moving average or trend, and it looks like your's is marching in the right direction!

  5. Just got my cheque for $500.

    Sometimes people don't believe me when I tell them about how much you can earn taking paid surveys at home...

    So I took a video of myself getting paid over $500 for taking paid surveys to finally set the record straight.
