Dividend Income Roundup – September 2016 – $14,888.17

Dividend Income Update

So the reason behind doing this is I decided to round up as many dividend investors dividend income reports as I could find and rank them based on earnings to see where I stack up against the rest. Certainly we’re all on our own paths unique to our own circumstances and goals, but it’s always interesting to see where other people are at. I also am curious the ideas & purchases the community is making as well.


Equity purchases seem to be a little all over the place this month. However, a recurring theme does seem to be the general consensus that the market is overheated. As such, many folks are either cutting back purchases, focusing on options strategies, or even pulling their entire portfolio out of the market!

Anyway, here we go for the dividend income leaders for September-


2016-07-31_04351) Dividend Hustler $3,345

Dividend Hustler has decided to listen to his gut and put investing on hold. In fact, he’s liquidated $600k worth of stocks to pay for a condo in cash.  This is part of his reset button given that his gut is telling him that a big correction is coming soon. A nice monthly haul, and a good note to go out on until the market implodes.

Activity: A condo!

2) $25,000 Dividends $1,555.65$25000 Divdiends

3) Dividend Diplomats $380.56 (Bert) + $1,009.48 (Lanny) = $1,390.48

  3. Great list, currently working my way through their blogs. I’d gladly take that last place spot from you, my September total was $51.90…$215.47 in dividends isn’t even conceivable for me at this point haha.

      Hey Divi Cents, Yes, it’s interesting to put together, and I think it’s probably the most popular post I do so far, so happy to do it. Cheers!

  6. Thanks for including us. It is an honor to be on a list with so many other great dividend investors out there. Reading income summary articles is my favorite part of the month and serves as kick ass motivation.

    Take care!

  7. Cool. Maybe I’ll do a dividend report too.

    But doesn’t a monthly dividend report seem like overkill? Not much happens each month right? Unless it is a quarterly dividend paying month with extra juice.

    What do you see as the benefits for monthly dividend income reports?

    I do one yearly now, but am considering doing one quarterly. I’ve linked to mine.

      Hey Sam,

      Yes, perhaps it is overkill and tbh the frequency wasn’t deeply considered. I am reporting monthly now for a few reasons:

      1) It encourages me to make a point of seeing what activity the community is up to each month – which I find to be beneficial for both education & inspiration
      2) I launched this blog earlier this year, so it’s new. This is by far my most popular post type I do each month. So I try to pay attention to my content metrics and use that as a way to inform stuff I write about
      3) People in the DGI community report on dividends monthly as it is a tangible thing that we can see that is getting us closer to our goals. So I just kind of went with this monthly reporting convention.

      So in short it’s mostly as a source of regular motivation & ideas. As you say it might be better or more efficient to do more infrequently, and perhaps may evolve the approach depending on how things go.

      In any event, thanks for stopping by. I’ve been a regular reader & fan of your blog for some time.

  9. $200 is a great number to be at! I love that you rounded up everyones income for the month and made a nice post everyone could view! Keep it up!

    • Greg Gee

      Hey DD,

      Thanks for the encouragement. Was glad to discover your blog and look forward to seeing how your income snowball progresses over time as well.

  10. Congrats to all of the bloggers on this list. September was a fine dividend month for all of us. Thanks for adding me to this list.

    • Greg Gee

      Hey IH, Yes, definitely. Checking out the new options site…very cool stuff.

  11. I’ll echo some comments about the usefulness of a monthly report. I’m also curious if each portfolio has a benchmark…My own income for September was below my dividend benchmark, but on a trailing twelve months I have beat my benchmark! So it is all relative.

    Otherwise, great compilation. Very much enjoy reading your blog.

    Cheers mate.
