I'm getting back on the infographic wagon after taking last month off.  Come get look at how many dividends these excellent companies paid out in May!  And two of them even gave me pay raises!

The full breakdown will come tomorrow morning, but you can get the advanced look here!

How were your dividends in May?  I don't know about all of you, but I can't wait for June and it's big dividend total!

    1. Tawcan,

      Glad you enjoy the infographic. I think it's a great way to give a quick overview of how the month went. The best part about that is that my forward dividends have increased by over $111 just from dividend increases this year. That's awesome!

      All the best!

  2. Nice! Did you hire someone through Fiverr, or create it yourself? I am trying to figure out ways to get my new blog about automated DGI excel spreadsheets looking sharper.

    1. Jon,

      I created the infographic myself through Piktochart which I think is a really great tool for anyone that wants to make the infographics themselves. It's pretty much drag and drop which makes it super easy. If only I could find some better drag and drop things for other ideas I have.

      I'll have to test out the spreadsheets myself because I'm always looking for something that's easier to maintain so I can focus on other things.

      All the best!

  3. Impressive forward dividend total. What was the reason for the decrease for the year over year total? Thanks for sharing.

    1. DivHut,

      I'd love to find a way to get it up to $6k for just my taxable accounts by the end of the year but I think we'll probably be a bit short of that mark unless we get some really heft dividend increases the rest of the year. Investing will be on the backburner still while we figure out the best route for us going forward.

      Thanks for stopping by!

      I can't wait to get the graph moving back in the right direction but overall it's still solid.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Great infographic. If I recall you sold some stocks earlier this year, so i assume this explains the yoy reduction. Regardless it was still a great month for you.

    1. IH,

      You're absolutely right. Luckily the decrease was all related to sales so I'm not concerned about it at all.

      All the best!
