Monthly Dividend Income – January 2016

Its time for me to post dividend income earned from my portfolios: DRIP, HID, & RothI enjoy sharing them as these passive dividend income provides me great inspiration and encouragement to keep chugging along and hopefully to the readers.

Wow! I scored five hundred+ in total passive dividend Income: $503.59 to be precise in the first month. My dividend income was more than 30% compared to last Oct and 71% more compared to last year’s Jan. It only shows the power of Dividend Income engine. I’m that much closer to being  Financially Independent (FI), living a life that I want to live and enjoy my freedom.

I like to own securities of Blue chip Aristocrats (companies with 25+ yrs of growing earnings) and Dividend Champions. Once the earned passive dividend income covers all my expenses, I will own my time as well.

I’d setup a goal of earning $7500.00 in total passive dividend income this year and so far have received $503.59. The month of January was superb for me and put me across $500 in the first shot of the year itself that I am glad to take.

Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.

How did your Dividend Income come along this month of Jan?

Thanks for reading.

  1. Nice passive income stream and start to the year PIM. That is $503.59 that you didn’t have to lift a finger for. And the best part, $503.59 that you can put to work earning you even more dividends in future months!

    Keep it up. Best wishes and continued success. AFFJ

    1. Hi Sharon,

      Glad that you like my post and income. Appreciate it. Definitely, I want to roll the snowball as fast as possible 🙂 With the market seems to be touching new lows every day, its appear to be buyers market. There will be many opportunities to pluck great companies at fair price. We’ll see.

    1. Hi ADD,

      Yeah. Its great to start the year with a big win. No complaints over there. The important thing is to stay consistent and slowly adding to the positions and I’m sure you will reach your destination. It takes time and patience but it is doable. It has taken me more than 5 yrs to reach where I’m. Keep up the good work over there and its nice to read your posts.
