  1. Great month CD! That is an impressive looking monthly dividend income graph. Very consistent with a clear trend heading in the right direction. Congrats on all the pay raises too.


  2. Nice month Captain! Great job adding more T to the portfolio. KMI is starting to drift down as well. I am considering adding some more for the first time in over a year.


  3. Hey CD,

    Nice on the dividend income, great YOY increase there too.

    Best regards

  4. Cap D,

    Very solid results with over $275 in dividend income. The purchase in T will guarantee another increase yoy in May 2016. We have set a cap on holdings at 20 but are seriously thinking of expanding to 21 if we can get some KMI sub $40. It seems to be popular among the DGI community and it can be a utility substitute for us. Thank you for sharing and congrats again on another great month. Here's hoping June treats you well.

    All the best.


  5. Great job Captain! Those dividends are really starti g to roll in for you. Looks like you're over $250 for your rolling 3 month average. Thats awesome. Keep up the good work.

  6. That's a nice looking upward graph! Keep up the good work!


  7. Looking good Captain! I had similar YOY growth in percent. In dollars your growth is certainly better since your portfolio is much bigger.

  8. Great progress, Captain! Keep up the great work!


  9. Nice month, look at all those raises :) I really like how you balance your monthly payments so they're all somewhat equal. That's going make for easy budgeting in retirement. Thanks for sharing!

  10. Month after month, the chart just keeps getting better! Keep up the great work Captain. Adding capital and receiving dividend raises will lead to a great future.

    Thanks for the update

  11. Very nice quarter over quarter and 23% year over year growth is spectacular!

  12. Captain,

  13. You almost quadruppled your dividend income in three years. That is quite impressive. Good job. Keep it rolling!
