In January, my wife and I received $442.30 in dividend income. That is an increase of 27.63% compared to last year.
We only had two new companies pay us a dividend compared to last year: Occidental Petroleum and Cisco.
I added a lot to my Canadian Imperial position throughout 2019. Because of that, the dividend nearly doubled.
Man, I can't believe that we are already one and a half months through 2020. Time continues to fly by at an amazing clip. Soon, my daughter will be one and I'll be reminiscing about all of her amazing milestones from her first year. I will say this, she loves to babble and crawl. I'm in store for an exciting, action-packed year at this rate! Each month, we take time to reflect on the previous month's results and monitor our progress as we pursue financial freedom. This article will contain my January dividend income summary and discuss any major portfolio updates.
Dividend Investing is amazing for so many reasons. As we continue to build a growing, passive income stream by investing in undervalued dividend growth stocks identified by our dividend stock screener, it is always important to track your progress and make sure you are achieving your goals. Seeing the progress makes the income feel real, and it motivates us that much more to reach financial freedom.
For the last five years, we have logged each monthly dividend income total on our "Dividend Income Page." You can see firsthand the results that each dividend stock purchase, dividend increases, and reinvested dividend have had. We continue to fuel the FI/RE one purchase, one increase, and one DRIP at a time. That is why I am always so excited to type up my monthly dividend income summary. To review the results and hold myself accountable.
