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 $12000.00 in total passive dividend income this year. This month of Jan was fantastic as it was the highest ever.

Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.

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

Thanks for reading.

  2. Wow. That´s awesome.

    But I can´t find Care Capital or Vereit in your portfolio? Great companies (REITS) that´s really worth taking a closer look on.

    Btw, glad to see a fellow blogger having such a huge success!
