Well, talk about being late?  Here we go with my OCTOBER dividend income and net worth!  Life has gotten in the way of my typical schedule.  However, after the Christmas season, I’ll be back to posting in a more timely manner!

October Dividend Income

This month I received $1,907.00 in dividend income!  On average, I was paid $31.78 from 60 different companies!  This month’s dividend income is great 29.64% increase over October 2021.  That’s $435.99 more dividend income than last October!!  Not too bad!

Here is a chart of my passive dividend income progress over the last 5 years.

The dividend portfolio has been updated.

Here are the dividend stock purchases I’ve made between October 2021 and 2022 that helped fuel this month’s dividend income growth.

October’s dividend income covers all my utilities, food and insurance for the month.

October Dividend Growth (Dividend Increases)

Below are the realized dividend increases I received this October.  Dividend growth is an extremely important metric and one of my favorite to report!

This October I received 12 dividend increasesFour of the  dividend increases were over 10%!

October’s dividend increase adds $84.08 in annual dividend income! On top of that, October’s dividend increases are the equivalent of investing an extra $2,402.29 of new money at 3.5% yield!

Net Worth

Net worth had a huge reversal!

Let’s do the numbers…


I’m still putting all the cash I can get my hands on into the market.  But, at this point, the well is dry – after last month’s efforts.

Real Estate

In October, our electricity bill dropped significantly to $115 for the month and our gas bill remained about the same at $40.  That totals to $155.  October has been mild, but the next few months will raise the gas bill.

Nothing new to report on the rental.  Slow and steady!


October turned out alright!  Dividend income moving up accompanied by some decent dividend growth!  I’ll take it.

With earnings likely coming in a little light over the next couple quarters, we may have some good opportunities to pick up some great values shortly.  Keep your “I want to own this dividend growth stock at this price list” handy.   I’ll keep mine close!

I'm a dividend growth investor who is aiming to retire early in 4 years at the age of 45. My goal is to live off the income my dividend portfolio and rental property produce exclusively and leave the corporate rat race. I hope you will join me in this journey!


  1. Better late than never! Haha. Crazy to see you’re up $400 in Div income this October vs last October.
