With the pending trade wars between US and China, our family's dividend stocks portfolio has been on the decline as of late. We are now seeing some recovery with increasing potential for resolution and also the possibility of lower interest rates from the Feds. And although we do have a few growth stocks mixed into our portfolio, majority of the companies we own pay some form of dividends. So although the stock price has dropped on a few companies, our dividend income stream remains relative stable. 

Below is a list of the dividends/partnership distributions that we received from our family's dividend stocks portfolio – September 2019 (recap).

During the past month, 14 companies/ETFs/Partnerships. The total monies received from those 14 companies/ETFs/Partnerships was: $329.70

Below is a breakdown of the dividends/partnership distributions received this past month:


9/03/19 - WFC (WELLS FARGO & CO): $3.57

  2. Congrats on a solid month AFFJ! We had a great September with over $1,100 in our taxable accounts and over $1,500 when you include the retirement accounts. All in all it was a great month and despite all the noise regarding the trade war, interest rates, recession fears and now impeachment possibilities the businesses we own continued to move forward. We even had 6 raises during the month. All the best in Q4.

  3. AFFJ -

    What's your biggest month during a year? Ever thought/consider to compare your monthly income to prior year's month within the article? Would love to see where you've come from!!


    1. Our biggest month tends to be January. We've definitely have thought about doing a year over year comparison but the truth is with work, side hustles, kids, we don't have much time left to keep this blog growing. Truth is this blog has really become just a log to track our financial journey. I really wish it could be more but for now it is what it is. We love reading yours and Bert's blog posts though. :)

      Thanks for stopping by and comment Lanny. Regards. AFFJ
