It's the end of one month and the beginning of another, so it's time for my favorite update: my dividend update. These dividend updates reflect all dividends that I receive through my investing pursuits. I hope they can help inspire you to take control of your own finances and invest to build a passive income stream. What you use that stream for is up to you, whether it's to fund early retirement, just provide some FI/FU money, or even to provide for an annual vacation. The key is that it can provide options and open up all sorts of possibilities.
The end of each quarter is always a great time for dividend growth investors since many companies make payments during that time and my June haul proved to be no different. I received a total of $874.90 in dividends in my FI Portfolio during September and another $5.59 in my Loyal3 Portfolio. Both of those portfolios are regular taxable brokerage accounts. My Roth IRA also provided $43.25 with all dividends being reinvested. Across my taxable accounts my dividends totaled $880.49. Adding in my Roth IRA dividends brings September's total to $923.74 which is a personal best. Year to date my accounts have generated $4,519.26.
