Dividend Noob’s May Dividend Payout

The month of May was pretty sparse on stock purchases. While the stock market is pretty turbulent, with a lot of investors holding their money in cash, I made the decision to purchase a few stocks. You can check out my portfolio to see my latest holdings. I did sell off HCP for reasons that you can read here. Dividend payouts were good although it didn’t quite reach the payouts that I received last month.

Not a bad little haul over the course of a month. Passive income is a great thing and with the power of dividends, I can get paid to do nothing. I have about $7k in cash sitting in my account, just waiting on future purchases. Anything I can do to raise the dividend payouts is what I’m after. While the overall market is shaky, I’m sure there are some great growth companies out there that I just need to stumble across. I hope everybody had a good month as well!
