It's dividend income update time. One of my favorite times of the month, as I get to review my previous month of passive income received from my dividend income portfolios.
Without rehashing the wild ride we experienced in the market the last few months, I could find comfort in one thing, my dividends. As we all know, the market may move up and down irrationally and seemingly on a whim, while our dividends remain much more stable, reliable and predictable. Sure, dividends may not increase every year and a cut or elimination is even possible, but the odds are greatly reduced when you diversify among different companies and sectors and focus on dividend quality (free cash flow, EPS and payout ratios). Forget chasing the high-yield unicorns and focus on the boring, lower-yielding but sustainable dividends. In the long run, you'll be better off. With that being said, let's take a look at my April 2019 dividend totals.
