The start of every month is exciting for all dividend income investors as we look back at the previous month and see how much passive dividend income our portfolios generated. March was exciting as ever as my year over year numbers continue to highlight the trifecta magic of dividend investing which includes, adding fresh capital, dividend raises and basic compounding to create an ever increasing passive income stream. Even if I stopped adding fresh capital today and every dividend stock I owned kept all distributions flat, without a single raise, my passive income stream would continue to grow. With that being said, let’s take a look back at my March 2018 dividend income.

Dividend income from my taxable account totaled $679.27 up from $568.21 an increase of 19.5% from March of last year.

Dividend income from my ROTH account totaled $159.04 up from $140.58 an increase of 13.1% from this time last year.

Dividend income from my IRA account totaled $59.92 down from $98.46 from this time last year, a decrease of -39.1%. (Nothing wrong here. VTR used to pay in March last year which explains the year over year decrease along with CCP which no longer exists after the SBRA merger and a delayed LTC payout which came in April instead of March).

Grand total for the month of March: $898.23 an increase of 11.3% from March 2017.
