July 2018 Dividend Report

So after completing my buying spree last month I took some well deserved time off the grid. Well not completely off but far removed 🙂 After being back in the office for a week I really needed to readjust back into the groove. Although I love my job, it hit me again that it would be fantastic to truely be a master of your own time. Oh well, only thing I can do is do my utmost best to create my own future. For myself and for my family.

Cool thing about being a DGI investor is that you get paid for doing nothing! I estimated that I would earn about €1,- a day during my vacation totalling €21,-. Let’s see how well I estimated this.

A total of 8 companies payed me this month:

Date Ticker Shares Amount (€)
03/07/2018 PPL 23 6.87
03/07/2018 PEP 5 3.37
04/07/2018 KMB 5 3.64
13/07/2018 HASI 15 3.59
16/07/2018 O 23 3.67
17/07/2018 CAH 5 1.73
26/07/20148 CSCO 10 2.4
27/07/2018 DIS 2 1.22

So this means I actually earned about 17,94 during my vacation. Not too shabby! For the sharp observer you can also notice that this €26,49 is my new alltime dividend record!

So this means my progress so far this year is coming along nicely:


And so far so good on my 2018 goals:


Total dividend YTD 2018: €142.
Total dividend received ever: €230,79.

And now….the big moment, my YoY-comparison!

July 2017: €6,55.
July 2018: €26,49.

Thats another amazing increase of 404,43% compared to last year! 

I’ll be off binge-commenting on your blogs now, I would love to hear your thoughts on your month (or mine)?

    1. That’s actually a very good question! I never really thought about what a good average should be. I’m guessing for me to be sustainable it should be somewhere between $1500-2000.

      I doubt that I can make that in 10 years, but 20…. 🙂


  1. Wow, so many awesome accomplishments here in one update. Congrats Mr. Robot!

    Not only did you continue to earn nicely while off on holiday, you also set a new record for a monthly payout! Not only that but you did it in a month that is typically a bit quiet for most. On top of that, you have another superb YoY increase! You’ve got a lot to be proud of here.

    1. It was great Tom, I had a real difficult time adjusting back. I kept thinking if I had started this journey 10 years ago I’d be able to do a lot more now then my 3 week a year….


  2. Nice Mr. Robot! Things are looking good with respect to all your dividend metrics. Congrats on all the achievements. Coming off that buying spree, the months ahead should be looking even better.

  3. Well done! I see you have Dis, I wish I had funds to get some too, definitely a must buy here:) it’s one of the best feelings to realise that despite not working, dividends are still dripping. Keep it up and you’ll be hitting new highs in no time!

    1. Hey Freedom, great to see you here! I love DIS and I was fortunate to a few shares. I hope to expand this in the years to come. I’ll be rooting for you as a fellow shareholder!


  4. Congrats on your 404.43% yoy increase and new record, Mr. Robot! $26.49 is some nice passive income flowing in. I think you will end up earning more than me in August. It’s always cool to read your reports because our income is similar. Keep it up!

    1. Hey RTC, its really motivating to see results of someone in the same stage as you. So lets keep eachother on track! We’ll see how Augusts pans out for the both of us. I do believe I have a nice dividend coming in from AbbVie 😉


  5. Hi Mr. Robot,
    Congrats on a new record and amazing growth YoY! Keep on saving and investing and you will reach the goal to be master of your time. Make sure to enjoy the journey as well, though 🙂

  6. Crazy YoY increase Robot! I always calculate my earnings per day for the entire year aswell. Great to actually think about what you can buy every day with your passive income already. You are getting very close to your goal for this year, keep pushing!
