Dividend Update - January 2013

January was an okay month for dividends but still a far cry from December's personal record.  I ended up having 2 companies pay in my FI portfolio and 1 in my Roth IRA.  Normal January's from now on would see 3 pay outs in the FI portfolio but Medtronic moved their January payment to late December.  Wal-mart did the same so my Roth IRA will normally see at least 2 companies paying.  With the markets being on a bit of a tear to start the year I didn't make any purchases in either account so the change in forward 12-month dividends only reflects announced increases and dividend reinvestment.  For the FI portfolio they sit at $1,827.20 and for the Roth IRA they're at $206.27.

  1. January was a low month for dividends for me, mainly due to dividend payments that were accelerated into December 2012. Oh well! On the bright side, the rest of the year should be pretty good for dividends.

    1. DGM,

      With the markets as on fire as they've been through January it's nice that some of the dividends got moved forward so I could put it to work before this run-up.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Pursuit,

    I had a less than stellar dividend income month as well, but we all knew this was coming due to accelerated payments. It's all good. It's income I didn't have to get up at 6:15 am and clock in for, so I'm very happy! :)

    Keep up the great work! You're going to have a monster year.

    Best regards.

    1. DM,

      At least my January dividends were way up from 2012, so that's a start. It's nice to have some of my money get up and go to work for me. It'll be even better when I don't have to join them.

      Thanks for stopping by!
