Another month is in the books, which means it’s time for a corresponding dividend log. Let’s dive right in!
|Main Street Capital (MAIN)||$12.60|
|Starwood Property Trust (STWD)||$72.00|
Well, it looks like I juuuust missed the $100 mark this month…slightly irritating, but I’ll survive! First-world problems right there, haha.
There isn’t much to say here. The months of January/April/July/October are very light in terms of the number of companies paying me, with Starwood Property Trust doing most of the heavy lifting thanks to its hefty 10% yield and the large stake that I hold in it.
One interesting thing to note is that with July’s earnings in the bag, I have now already surpassed the totality of the dividends I received in 2015. That’s progress right there, baby! There really is no better feeling than seeing your passive income steadily and consistently snowball, month after month, year after year, with little effort on your part beyond the initial act of investing capital in the market.
Onward to August!
