January 2014 Dividend Income

January is officially in the books and I have received a total of 8 dividend deposits this month. This income is passive income that comes in automatically into my brokerage account. I didn’t have to labor for an employer to receive this income, nor did I have to follow any orders for certain period of time. This stream of income works like clockwork and the companies I am invested in reward the shareholders first.

I am freaken stoked to the great start for the year! Plus, I will be able to take these proceeds and reinvest them back into the market to purchase some more shares in high quality companies.

  • PepsiCo, Inc. (PEP) – $15.38
  • Union Pacific Corp. (UNP) – $4.81
  • Baxter International, Inc. (BAX) – $11.27
  • Kimberly-Clark Corp. (KMB) – $8.17
  • Phillip Morris International, Inc. (PM) – $39.66
  • American Realty Capital Properties, Inc. (ARCP) – $19.58
  • Realty Income Corp. (O) – $8.64
  • Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (DLR) – $31.20

Total – $138.71

    Congrats on the dividend income, DividendVet. Great start to the new year.

      Thank you, I saw you did quite well yourself for the year of 2013. Hope you are off to a great start yourself.

      Take care

    Solid dividends right there and we own 5 of the same companies. Eventually I’d like to get some UNP to be a co-position with my existing NSC shares. Keep up the good work!

    • DividendVet on February 2, 2014 at 19:36

      Yes we do, I like to see some correlation between our group of blogging dividend growth investors. Great looking portfolio!

      Yeah, UNP has been a great growth stock so far growing over 27% from last years purchase in Feb. Plus, small but decent dividend yield makes everything so much sweeter. I am strong buyer of these rail oligopolies.

    Great start to the year! That’s some nice excess capital that can be reinvested, thus providing even more dividends in the future. 🙂

    Keep it up!

    Best wishes.

      Hey thanks! Yes indeed, my currently invested capital works much harder than I do, bringing back more of their little friends, hehe.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    Great list of dividend payers on that list. I’m especially a big fan of DLR. Very cool.

    • DividendVet on February 6, 2014 at 04:00

      Thanks, I agree DLR is a solid REIT for many years to come!

      Take care,

    Nice job DV! Great start to 2014! We share a few positions (ARCP, PM, and DLR) with ARCP getting 2014 off to a great start as their acquisitions continue to finalize and go through.

    • DividendVet on February 9, 2014 at 02:57

      I appreciate it! I honestly believe ARCP is a great growth stock to have in the portfolio. Lots of room to mature, plus gives an awesome dividend yield. Gotta love it.

      Thanks for reading
