  1. Wow over 40 dividend payers this month, now that's some serious diversity. One of your best months isn't it ? Keep it up Swan.

    1. Captain Dividend,

      It's kind of nice having a lot of payers. It's too bad I can't build it up as much as before because of school expenses. I hope once I get this degree I can pay it all off quick. Then I can get back to creating and growing more income producers.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Very nice month Swan! A long and diversified list you've got paying you more than $250 in dividends this past month. Surprisingly, I only see 3 that we own in our portfolio. I guess that means we better keep buying some more companies. ;)

    Thanks for sharing your progress. Best wishes and continued success on your personal journey! AFFJ

    1. AFFJ,

      I have some pretty good companies, but there are some I would not really want to add more shares to right now. It is nice to have a lot of payers spread out though and keep increasing the amount through DRIPs.

      Hope you had a great June

      Thank you!

  3. Over $250 and you didnt have to work for any of it. Gotta love it. Like the others said above, you have a ton of diversity there with over 40 companies paying you. Pretty sweet.

    Congrats on the solid month!


    1. ADD,

      Passive income is definitely my preferred method of doing things. It takes a lot of work to build it up the point where could outdo expenses. It is still possible and likely if one works hard towards it like we are all doing.

      Keep it up!

  4. Wow, that's a lot of paying stocks in a single month! How many do you own?


    1. DivGuy,

      Yeah, I like having a lot of payers. it looks like I have about 52 stocks, but a few of them I have minimal shares and don't receive that much income.

      I really like what you are doing over there yourself.
