January 2019 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeThe continuous cycle of dividend distributions continues, as I aim to track and count the dividends that been paid to me just for existing. It pays just to breathe! I enjoy publishing these monthly dividend income reports as I have gained a much better understanding in how much of my 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 12 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. Here it is!

 

 Viacom, Inc. (VIAB) $9.00
 Wall-Mart Stores, Inc. (WMT) $8.39
 Kimberly-Clark Corp. (KMB) $19.42
 PepsiCo, Inc. (PEP)
$25.13
 Altria Group, Inc. (MO) $69.42
 The Walt Disney Co. (DIS) $14.08
 Phillip Morris International, Inc. (PM) $65.30
 Realty Income Corp. (O) $19.77
 Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (DLR)
$41.41
 STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG) $5.37
 Erie Indemnity Co. (ERIE) $16.20
 The Buckle, Inc. (BKE) $46.76
Total $340.25

 

When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from January 2018 to January 2019, it represents a positive 8.8% for a year over year increased dividend income growth. BKE again has came through again with a very nice special dividend on top of a regular dividend. Now with around 5.7% dividend yield and with 11th straight annual special dividends paid, it is building itself in a very unique shareholder friendly company. Even though company has been going through plenty of retail sector headwinds, the company still can sustain paying dividend and fluctuated special dividend based on their annual performance. Also, revenues has come down slightly year over year, but BKE has been doing the right thing and buying back their shares and reducing the total number of shares outstanding. 

I will DRIP the following upcoming month: VNQ & VYM.

The dividend income page has been updated accordingly.

    Fantastic work, looks like a great month. Increase on last year is always a bonus. Keep up the great work!

      Much appreciated! I was surprised to see an increase since I didn’t put too much $ to work last year (2018). I still have a few bad apples in the portfolio and would like to exchange them for a few good ones. Bought some shares of a really solid company here last week, buy article is in works!

      Stay tuned!
