June has been the biggest month ever in dividend income payouts received folks as I beat out last March’s total by a Hamilton. I enjoy publishing these monthly dividend income reports as I have gained a much better understanding in how much of my passive income is coming in every month and how much it is growing over time. For the month of June I have received a total of 23 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. Here is the dollar stocking action!

The newest member of the portfolio “The Dividend Machine” workforce becomes Vanguard REIT Index Fund (VNQ). Catalyst here are interest rate hikes as REITs just took a pounding here last few months dropping in price quite a bit. What better way to celebrate this than buying a phenomenal fund at a very reasonably discounted prices. Note that prices will be much higher few months from now. Also, you need to understand that it takes time to keep up with all of the holdings, therefore buying an index into REITs just simplifies matters as there are just way too many great Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) out there to purchase one by one. I will still keep my separate investment holdings in Realty Income Corp. (O), Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (DLR), Public Storage (PSA) and STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG) as the companies have been doing excellent job growing cashflow and dividend distributions to shareholders.

With this recent acquisition I went with Erie Indemnity Co. (ERIE) as it has been on my watch list for some time now and one of my alerts notified that it was sale, well somewhat. Not a total steal here, but still got a fairly valued price. This is as boring as a company business can get – insurance… Insurance has been around for centuries and I am not seeing it going away well basically ever. I also believe that this is a great insurance for my “The Dividend Machine” if it ever breaks down. That was a joke guys and gals try to relax! Essentially, I like this ancient insurance business model as my other two holdings Aflac, Inc. (AFL) and Travelers Companies, Inc. (TRV) have done great by paying and growing dividends as well as steadily increasing in price. Oh also one last note, I am a longterm customer and their rates are even better than any other insurers (even some very Military friendly ones) and Erie still beat them! Has to be something right? Competitive or Non-Competative advantage?

With the recent drama going around with AT&T, Inc. (T) regarding the ongoing acquisition of Time Warner, a perfect catalyst was created for this very recent purchase of additional shares of one of my favorite companies in the good old Stock Market. This is exactly what I look for when acquiring a small fraction of a great business, some sort of news, either internal or external to create a golden acquisition opportunities where I can buy at a much bigger discount and essentially lock into a great business with a reasonable margin of safety. This is what Dividend Growth Investing is, building an income that is reliable, predictable and increasing.
