Dividend Update Preview - March 2017 [Infographic]

Somehow time keeps marching forward whether we want it to or not and now the 1st quarter of 2017 is already in the books.  It still feels like it should be January or maybe early February to me, but here we are already in April.  The great thing though is that while time keeps moving, that also means that dividends keep rolling in.

Come check out how much these companies paid me to do absolutely nothing for the company!  That's the kind of work-life balance that I love!

My real-life portfolio monthly dividend update for March 2017

*The Versum Materials (VSM) dividend increase was the initiation of their dividend since being spun-off from parent company Air Products & Chemicals (APD).  Therefore there are no percentages for the increase or cumulative raises received.

With the 1st quarter of 2017 in the books are you on track to meet your dividend goals for the year?

Let me know in the comments below.


  1. Nice forward dividends! Almost 600$ per month.

    1. dividendGeek,

      It's getting close to $6k again. I got there back in late 2015/early 2016 but then had a big dividend cut, a few position trims and virtually no cash to invest so it's been a long road back up to it. With 6-7 dividend increases expected this month that should push me over the top.

      All the best.

    2. Hi PIP

      Great to see you almost at $6k, it does feel good when you start to receive hundreds of dollars (or British Pounds in my case) each month for doing nothing but selecting companies to invest in.

      I love to see the increases, and my dividends have increased by 46.96% in March.

      Look forward to seeing your progress going forward

      Best Wishes

  2. Love the graph. and great work with the dividends. $600 a month avg is amazing.

  3. PiP -

    HELL YAH! Nice work, slight increase from last year, few divvy icreases this month - all taken with open arms right? The month of April will be big too, and it is scary that one month is in the books. Sometimes, we have to look around and take what life is offering every once in a while, ya know? Congrats on the stellar month!


  4. Wow I almost forgot it was already April too. Time sure flies when your making passive income. Nice month for you. Dividend increases are always a good thing. Hope there are more in the coming months.

  5. Those dividends keep rolling in whether you are working or not, healthy or sick. Great job with your March total. Slight increase year over year which is always nice to see. I was happy about that VSM dividend declaration. Finally... Keep up the good work.
