January 2020 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeIt is a brand new month and it is that time once again to count those deposited dividend checks, or as I recently heard someone call them “freedom chips“. We live in times where you really must have enough of them to buy your freedom from that hamster wheel. Don’t buy fancy things, buy freedom first, then buy fancy things. 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 9 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account.



 Wall-Mart Stores, Inc. (WMT) $8.55
 Kimberly-Clark Corp. (KMB) $20.00
 PepsiCo, Inc. (PEP) $25.88
 Altria Group, Inc. (MO) $72.89
 Phillip Morris International, Inc. (PM) $67.02
 Realty Income Corp. (O) $20.35
 Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (DLR) $44.28
 The Walt Disney Co. (DIS)
 Erie Indemnity Co. (ERIE) $17.37
Total $290.42


When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from January 2019 to January 2020, it represents a negative 14.6% for a year over year decreased dividend income growth. The decrease was mostly to owning BKE last year which paid a hefty special dividend.
