In total, I received a personal record of $63.11 in dividends between my Robinhood account, retirement account, and M1 Finance account for June 2019.

It's incredible to think that a year has gone by so fast after my portfolio's first June last year. I'm very pleased with both the 9.7% quarterly growth and the 63.3% YOY growth, but next year is set to be infinitely more exciting as I'll be able to contribute more capital than I ever have before. While 63.3% YOY growth is incredible, I fully believe I'll be able to more than double my dividend income collected next June from dividend increases, reinvestment of dividends into my Robinhood and retirement accounts, and fresh capital contributions to my retirement account and Robinhood account. It has been an incredible 2 years of investing, and the best is yet to come! I couldn't be more excited!
How was your June? Did you have a record month? Did you have any new dividend payers for June? As always, I very much appreciate everyone for reading this post and I look forward to reading and replying to your comments!
Great stuff Kody! 10% QoQ growth is fantastic. It's still awesome to see a younger fellow get interested in investing so early. It might not be life changing totals yet but 5-10 years after you start your career it's going to be pretty eye-opening. We set a personal best in June and nearly toppled $1.1k for our FI Portfolio which is my main portfolio on the FI journey.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the comment. I'm very fortunate I was able to get a fairly early start investing. I can certainly notice a difference between when I started investing and now. I can't even imagine how drastic the difference will be between now and 5 years in the future.
Enjoy the dividends Kody. IN June I received $73 in dividends which is also 63% YOY growth.ReplyDelete
Congrats on a solid month of dividends! Keep rolling that snowball.
