Dividend Update – January

    The first month of the year has just about come to a end. Hopefully everyone has been hitting the ground running so far in the new year. A lot has happened this month; Trump being inaugurated into office, the Dow hit 20,000 for the first time in history, and for all you tennis fans out there following the Australian Open, we are about to have a Williams sister final on the women’s side and a Federer vs. Nadal final on the men’s side. I am excited, because that has not happened in years.

 

    That’s enough excitement for now, lets get back to the recap. All of the dividends are in for January and it’s time to analyze and publish the results. See below for details.

 

 

Dividends

    CSCO – $5.70

    GE – $8.86

    HASI – $20.01

    CINF – $6.28

 

    These dividends add up to $40.85 for this month. This is a 350% increase from last year where I only made $9.08 in dividends in January. Not a bad month but there is much room for improvement.

 

    Looking forward, there are a few things to note. I recently sold HASI, which paid out half of my dividends for this month. That is going to hurt going into April. However, I own shares of KO which will payout for their first time of the year in April. Even though KO will make up for some of the slack, I am looking to add another company that will distribute a dividend in January.

 

    How did your stocks do this month? Do you have any ideas for companies I should be looking to add on the January cycle? Your comments are welcome below.

    Good job as you keep adding it will keep growing you have that snowball moving.

  • Just have to keep adding to it and be consistent. I’m a similar levels in terms of dividends for January, probably close the month at ~$50. Its a be-consistent/boring results game that will pay off in the end.

    • Dividend Daze:

      Exactly. All you can do is keep finding opportunities to buy and add to your portfolio. Long term, that strategy has proven to pay off. I was aiming to get at least $50 in dividends every month but it will average itself out throughout the course of the year.

  • Nice work there. 350% increase is massive, well done.
    The tennis is also exciting. I am in Australia, but not in Melbourne unfortunately, but I am still watching on tv.

    • Dividend Daze:

      Thanks. Forgot you were in Australia. That is one of the top places I want to visit someday. Sounds like I may need to visit haha. Great matches though, especially the men’s side. Was not going to be disappointed either way after that final.

  • Great job with that year over year growth. Just keep buying and reinvesting in those solid dividend paying companies. I don’t formally look at what months companies pay out their divvys as a basis for a buy so I wouldn’t put too much emphasis on trying to find a January dividend payer just because it pays on a 1, 4, 7, 10 cycle. Finding quality, sustainability and good value are more important. Thanks for sharing.

    • Dividend Daze:

      I agree that good value and sustainability is what you need. Typically that is exactly what I look for over the month it pays. But it is nice to see a constant flow of dividends every month. Thanks for the comment.

  • Man, you start very young. So I suspect within 5 years you could see substantial dividend income to supplement most of your expense. Way to go!

    • Dividend Daze:

      Haha thank you. That’s the plan, but I still have a long ways to go in order to catch up to some of these other bloggers in our community. Thanks for your comment!

  • Dan:

    ROCK ON DAZE! I would bet you had the highest YoY change than anyone! That is awesome. I just posted my JAN report as well, and I’m excited to watch our progress in 2017. Keep it up bro,

    • Dividend Daze:

      Thanks man! I am enjoying that YoY while I can because I know after this year it won’t be as substantial. But we love to see any growth. Means we are headed in the right direction. Appreciate the comment as always.

  • Awesome year-over-year growth, Dividend Daze! Starting off so young so great. It will be fun to see what your January brings in a couple years from now.

    I was super excited for the Williams sisters final and the Federer-Nadal final. I DVR’d them and watched them the next morning. Incredible tennis. I’m traditionally a Federer fan but, to be honest, agree with Federer in his speech at the end. I would have been happy with either player winning. Both will go down as the best players of all time.

    • Dividend Daze:

      Thanks! I am looking forward to seeing what my portfolio looks like in a few years as well.
      That was great tennis! It’s not often where both sides you don’t care who wins because you like everyone in the final. All those last few rounds all going the distance made it an exciting tournament to watch.

  • Great work,

    Slow and steady wins the race. Keep adding fresh new capital to that and watch the dividend magic happen.

    • Dividend Daze:

      That’s the plan. We have time on our side so we have the privilege of watching the dividend magic happen for longer. Thanks for your comment.

  • Great month! Can’t argue with those results. Dividend investing is a long term game, so keep on finding ways to add the strongest quality companies to your portfolio. Can’t wait to see what you are able to produce in February!

    Bert

    • Dividend Daze:

      Thanks Bert. That’s all we can do. Keep finding quality companies to add new capital into while letting that dividend snowball do the rest over time. As always, appreciate the comment.

  • […] Dividend Daze – $40.85 –  350% growth rate compared to last year. No big deal Dividend Daze!  While your April results will decrease because of your recent sell, we are digging your investment in KO!  Just wait till you receive your first payment in March. […]

  • Congrats! That’s a huge increase, well done. Good luck next month and the rest of the year.

      Thanks! I don’t see that percentage increase staying so big over time, but it sure keeps you in the right mind set and want to pursue more. Thanks for stopping by.
