Time is flying too fast when you are having fun. Speaking of fun, it is time to tally up the passive dividend income I have received for the month of December from all my various investments. The portfolio has truly become the golden goose that continues laying growing dividends! 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 November I have received a total of 9 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. Here is the moolah!
|AT&T, Inc. (T)||$68.39|
|General Mills, Inc. (GIS)||$22.97|
|Apple, Inc. (AAPL)||$28.92|
|Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI)||$58.97|
|Procter & Gamble Co. (PG)||$29.52|
|Realty Income Corp. (O)||$19.72|
|STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG)||$5.37|
|British American Tobacco (BTI)||$16.37|
|Starbucks Corp. (SBUX)||$18.00|
When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from November 2017 to November 2018, it represents a positive 20.8% for a year over year increased dividend income growth.
Also, BKE should be announcing a special dividend on top of the regular dividend this December as I added to my current position a substantial 5 figure trade to this holding. BKE has been paying special dividend around this time for the last 6 years in a row. Probability is high they will again!
Additionally, I’ve sold my full position stake in VZ not too long ago which I thought can go down for a lower price and and I can buy it back. I was not able to buy it back before the dividend was paid as the market went down and VZ decided to keep going up. VZ actually broke through multi-year resistance level at around $55 which caught me by surprise as I was expecting it to bounce off of it and go down. Either way, my next entry point for VZ is around $47 and just need to remind myself to stay patient and wait for that opportunity to show up later.
I will DRIP the following upcoming month: BKE, GIS, KMI, VNQ & VYM.
The dividend income page is updated accordingly.
