January 2017 Dividend Update

It's time for my January dividend update! My income for the month was $336.41, this is a bit lower than I was expecting due to the Kraft/Heinz (KHC) dividend payment falling in December. That's still over $300 of free income I didn't have to work for.

This month I made one purchase. I bought 14 shares of Proctor & Gamble (PG) - $1199.96 which should add another $9.38 in dividend income to next months totals!

In the chart below you can see my dividend growth, you will notice in the past 6 months my income has been reduced slightly, that was due to my sale of Realty Income. I used the proceeds to pay off my mortgage and I have now started to reinvest in Realty Income again (this time in a Roth IRA tax advantaged account ).


  1. Captain -

    Nice job! Killing it over there and smooth move buying O again, in the tax advantaged account, which makes sense given the REIT, higher yield, etc.. Looking forward to the moves you make in 2017 and I also bought PG in January as well - excited for more dividends from them.


    1. Thanks Lanny, I did notice a few other bloggers purchasing PG. Looks like I was in good company!

  2. I love the PG buy.

    Great work on getting $336 of free money!

  3. Nice job paying off the mortgage and continuing to invest! PG is a great buy. Congrats.

  4. Good job took me 3 times to write this everytime I started it would go to your dec income page lol. You will get on track in no time at all.

  5. Very nice income for the month there. Payed off your mortgage? That would have to be a fantastic feeling for sure!

  6. That's great that you pulled in over $330 in January even after your Realty Income sale.

  7. Hi Captain,
    Congrats on a great month - $330+ of income you didn't have to work for is awesome! I like the PG pickup too. Holding O in a Roth account is much better for tax efficiency.
    Best wishes,

  8. Wahoo $330 is still pretty awesome! Also wahoo to paying off your mortage, that's a great step. You really can't go wrong with Realty Income. It's one of my personal favs. =)
