The dividend income was a bit subpar comparing what I was getting used to seeing, and this was primarily due to selling my stake in ARCP, PSA and KMP for the property down payment. I was getting ARCP dividend every month, so with out that dividend as well as PSA dividend payment, the income is quite a bit bellow my regular levels. Also, KO usually pays their dividend in the beginning of every quarter which was paid last month in December.
- Baxter International, Inc. (BAX) – $11.96
- Union Pacific Corp. (UNP) – $11.04
- Kimberly-Clark Corp. (KMB) – $8.47
- PepsiCo, Inc. (PEP) – $17.75
- Phillip Morris International, Inc. (PM) – $42.19
- Realty Income Corp. (O) – $8.69
- Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (DLR) – $33.20
Total – $133.30
I enjoy publishing these dividend income reports as I have gained a better understanding in how much of passive income is coming in every month and how much it is growing over time. For the month of January, I have received a total of 7 diversified direct deposits in dividend income. When comparing last years total in January 2014 dividend income, it presents a negative 3.9% year over year decline. The difference from last quarter is 4.3% quarter over quarter increased growth.
The story is that not every month is going to be portfolio growth months, especially when assets were sold in order to purchase our home. Nonetheless, due to DGI being a long term type of strategy I have no doubts that growth in dividend income is almost indubitable.
Thank you for reading & have a great day!
