Dividend Income Update June 2017

June flew by for me and that is part of the reason this post is behind. It is hard to believe 2017 is already half over. It is time for vacation, bbqs and enjoying the summer while it is here. This month was solid for passive income so without further ado, let’s see how June shaped up for dividends.


It looks like discount retailers, telecom, utilities and materials saw some declines recently. A few of the names on this heat map are on my watchlist.


After several months of slight gains it looks like the main indices I follow were rather flat or down by the end of June: S&P500 +0.48%, NASDAQ -0.94%, TSX -1.09%.

June Dividends Received: 

ENB $1.83
XOM $5.17
EMR $4.32
JNJ $2.52
CNR $2.06
ZCS $0.13
ZFM $0.08
IEFA $2.84
IEMG $0.94
VUS $0.67
Total: $20.56

When compared to June 2016, my dividend income grew by +37.8%, from $14.92 to $20.56. I’ll take those numbers any day!

Most of the holdings in my Niche Fund pay quarterly dividends so some months will have more income reflected than others. From now on, I’ll include dividends received from my ETF holdings in addition to my dividend stock holdings. This should provide a more interesting roundup each month, especially as the ETF holdings pay more consistently than some of my stocks.

My Dividend Income page has a calendar showing when I expect to receive dividends from each of my stock holdings.

The featured image for this post is from my short trip to France. It was a toasty 37C outside so the sky looks a little hazy.

Thank you for checking out my blog. If you have a DGI blog I would be interested to hear from you so I can update my blogroll. I hope everyone is enjoying a nice summer and keep sharing your dividend growth posts. It is great to see the analysis and shout outs to fellow bloggers out there.

  1. Interesting heat map. Does the colors chnage per day or based on 5day. Nice year over year increase too!
    Keep it up


  2. Good job increasing your dividends — that year-over-year increase of 38% is fantastic! I really like the heat map. I spotted some of my positions with massive red colors. Mmm… maybe it’s time to look at those to see if it make sense invest more!
