Dividend Update Preview - February 2017 [Infographic]

Another month down and another month of dividends are in the books.  It was far from a record setting month for myself, but things are starting to trend back in the right direction after 2016's year of changes.  Of course it doesn't hurt that I received 7 dividend increases during the month as well!

Come check out how much these companies paid me to literally sit at home and do nothing for the company!  That's the kind of work-life balance that I love!

My real-life portfolio monthly dividend update for February 2017

How were your dividends in February?  Two months through the first quarter are you set up for a great start to the year?

Let me know in the comments below.

  1. I know I say this every month, but I do love the infographic. I pulled in close to $500 in dividends last month. A record February for me.

    1. IH,

      Glad you like the infographic. I think it gives a great overview of things and it's a bit easier on the eyes than the long form words on a screen with the full detailed breakdown. Congrats on a record month of dividends.

      All the best.

  2. Nice list of companies paying you. Always happy to see several in common. Do you plan on making ROST a long term hold? All you hear about these days are failing malls and tough times for retailers. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Keith,

      I've been thinking a lot about the B&M retail segment lately after seeing WMT's relatively good numbers and TGT's horrible earnings. The more I think about it the more I keep coming to the conclusion that the high end and low end B&M retail, as well as grocers, will still be fine in the e-commerce world, but I don't see how the mid-tier can keep going as they have. I think the mid-tier, like TGT, is going to face a lot of competition and continue to have their margins squeezed. That being said ROST falls into the low end of B&M retail with their heavily discounted merchandise. Although since they typically buy overstock and unsold items from the mid-tier maybe a decline in the mid-tier could mean less supply since companies like TGT, KSS, JCP, M...are shutting down stores. Lots to think about but I still think B&M retail will be around, the question is in what capacity.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    1. BHL,

      I wish the dividends were back up over the $300 mark, but with the multiple changes, namely stock sales, over the last 12-14 months it might still be awhile. Maybe by Q4 I can see it creep back up over that threshold.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Awesome start of the year for you. And you already have 61 in dividend increases. That rocks.

    1. D&H,

      That extra $61 in expected dividends is awesome and there's still lots of companies to announce raises this year. March is pretty slow, but April should see somewhere around 7 which is awesome.

      Thanks for stopping by!
