December Dividend Update

My total dividend income for December totaled  $162.21. This was a bit lower than last quarter where I made $167.99 in September. This was due to Walmart's dividend falling in early January rather than late December (I really hate that).  You can see all of my dividend income here.

  2. I had a few months myself where the dividend income was lower but the overall trend is higher. And that's the important part. Keep up the good work!

    1. I have a few dividend stocks whose pay dates like to fluctuate so they could be in one month one quarter but next quarter in a different month. It's a bit frustrating but your right, it doesn't really matter. Just me being nit picky is all. :-p

  5. Great month! It's silly to get annoyed over dividend timing anomalies but I feel the same way. My dividend income dropped QoQ as well due to PEP and DLR paying in Jan. Love your blog, may your 2014 be healthy and full of success.

    1. Hey Divi, your right it is kinda silly . I mean I'm still getting paid and that's what counts. Thanks for the kind words. I noticed your a blogger yourself, I'll have to add a link to your blog in my blogroll! Best of luck in 2014 !
