First month of 2016 is now officially in the books and you know what that means? The posts on dividend income from the month from YOU the bloggers! I love this time of the year and seeing everyone’s progress, the leaps, bounds, the ups, the downs and the big hitters for each month that we are receiving. It’s a great way to show the articles we read and how excited we are for every single pursuit – to financial freedom! Let’s see how everyone did during January!
JC – Passive Income Pursuit – $306.40 – Holy smokes – crossing the $300 mark in December, congratulations! Just awesome. This was spread over 3 different/types of accounts and you are killing it. I see Phillip Morris (PM) playing a large role in that, and they’ve been a solid dividend company, that’s for sure. Congrats!
Dividend Beginnerr – $111.68 – Beginnerr was scooping up and making some great purchases in January. Looks like big AT&T (T) is his pay day at the moment – love the big telecom! Slow and steady right?
AmericanDivDream – $326.59 – uh oh – touching the back of my (Lanny’s) heels over there, eh?! Similarly, you had a whopper from Phillip Morris (PM), which I can also attest with you and DB above, as those two provide a nice chunk to me as well.
Dividend Hustler – $2,457.96 – …. Um… enough said? haha – as in baseball we would say, “He is tearing the cover off the ball!” – Can’t say much more except – I’d be retired, Hustler – KEEP IT UP!
A Frugal Family – $397.86 – Whoa! This is awesome, almost crossed the mark of $400 in an off-month of January – I would have given you the $2.14 to make it there! Congrats and keep letting the snowball build. To note – AFFJ received $99.49 from Apollo Residential Mortgage (AMTG).
DivHut – $331.21 – Nice! Just like ADD – you are clipping on my feet over there, great job! It looks like Kraft-Heinz (KHC) and Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) are the big bangers for you for the month. Keep blazing that path DH!
Captain Dividend – $348.60 – Alright big Captain, making moves and steering the ship to the promised dividend land – love that there are quite a few of us over $300 in the dividend income for the month category. I see you have New Jersey Resources (NJR) as your big dog for the month. It’s fun seeing these names I don’t really come across. Congrats and nice job!
Dividend Niche – $4.59 – Year 1 of dividend investing for Dividend Niche is underway after Niche began this journey back in July 2015. The growth rates are going to be insane after his one year anniversary and Niche is off to a great start! Keep at it!
Pollies Dividends – $46.42 – PD received a good chunk from Walmart (WMT) and also had an increase of 168% year over year – congrats! Climbing that mountain and scaling is going well, that’s for sure!
Vivianne @ Well Rounded Investing – $134.54 – Love the quote at the beginning of the article, the delicious looking beef jerky, and most importantly, the dividend income for the month. $134 crushed Vivianne’s January 2015 total of $0 in dividend income. UNREAL!
Dividend Hawk – $686.97 net dividends – DH’s January income increased 67%! There are a lot of strong dividend paying stocks on this list. Amazing progress here Hawk!
Passive Income Mavericks – $503.59 – PIM has a goal of receiving $7,500 in dividend income during the year. EArning over $500 in January, an “off” month for dividend income, is a sign of great things to come. It is amazing how PIM was able to eclipse the half century mark as well!
Team CF – 338 euros – The Cheese Index was OFF THE HOOK in January. Team CF’s monthly dividend income chart shows an amazing story and it shows how fast they are moving towards financial freedom!
Boom!!! There it is – a great month to start the year off, it’s amazing. From each post we’ve read, it looks like we are making progress, all of us. We are so proud of each and everyone here, this journey, though long, is bittersweet. There are many rules to keep in play – stay consistent, make purchases that are sound and fit your appetite and goals, patience & time, as well as to keep your expenses in check as much as you can. Congratulations everyone! Cheers to one month down and 11 more months to go. Best of luck and stay FOCUSED!
