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

    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.

      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

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

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

      Take care,

    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!

    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.
