5 dividends make down day easier to swallow

Considering my portfolio took a complete swan dive today, down more than 1%, it was nice to see a few dividends find their way into my account once the market closed.

June portfolio update

I was paid $32.84 by a combined 40 different companies in June - a 43.4% increase from the $22.90 I earned by the same handful of stocks in March. The increase had a tiny bit to do with a few dividend hikes, but was powered primarily by purchases made with fresh capital and dividend reinvestment in April and May.
