Bert’s December Dividend Income Summary

I’ve been getting excite to write this post ever since I published my November 2016 dividend income summary.  Why?  Because December is the BEST DIVIDEND INCOME MONTH OF THE YEAR!  Not only do we receive dividends from the majority of companies in our portfolio, but we also receive distributions from our mutual funds.  More often than not, the capital gains distributions cause you to fall out of your seat as the number never seems to disappoint, especially when you have been contributing to your 401k throughout the year.   Now that it is officially 2017, time for me to perform my final dividend income summary of 2016!  Let’s see my December dividend income figures!

Lanny’s September Dividend Income Summary

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  Ah, the quarter-end dividend income summary post.  This is my favorite time of the year, as most companies traditionally pay on a calendar quarter end, which for the U.S. dividend investors, this typically means a bigger month of collecting dividends than usual.  Will that be the case for me?  Did I set some milestones here?  I have established now a minimum bar, as well as leaped to new heights for my September dividend income!

Rowe Price (TROW).
