December Dividend Income - $6.09

Ah, December.  It's cold.  It snowed.  I live at the beach - we (as a city) don't like snow.  We don't do snow. We're not prepared.  We don't have the equipment to handle snow.  Pretty much EVERYTHING is closed.  I've been on forced "Liberal" Leave yesterday and today since nobody wants to drive in to unlock the building.  I can put in a few hours from home over VPN, but I cannot put in a full days work over VPN because the majority of my work is 3D CAD, and doing anything in 3D over a VPN is downright frustrating.  So, I keep up on email and other project related housekeeping for a few hours and use my leave for the remainder of the day.  This leaves me time to finally catch up on some posts and enjoy the heat from my woodstove.

December Dividend Income

December was a pretty good month for dividend income, but only because I'm "heavily" (compared to the quantity of my other positions) invested in Ford.  Ford (F) brought in $5.45 and Realty Income Corp (O) brought in another $0.64 for a total of %6.09 for the month.  Ford Dividend Income almost bought a half share through DRIP - Dividend Re-Investment Program, and it came in on a payday where I normally transfer money to my TD Ameritrade account for my next purchase.  With that timing, I let it sway my purchase decision and purchased more (F)!!!  It'll be cool when I have enough shares that each drip purchases a whole share.

How was your December Dividend Income?

  1. I live in the South as well and I completely understand how unprepared we are for snow. Everybody panic!!!

    Congrats on the dividend drips! I'm loving O and the price is looking quite nice as well.

    Good Luck in 2018!

    1. Thanks MH. I've only had 2 months of (O) dividends so far, but I dig the monthly payments.

  3. Love the dividends SDM, especially the one from Realty Income. I'm a mid-westerner that lives in an area used to snow and cold during the winter, so I have a hard time relating to you here haha I do know how dangerous it can be to drive and be around others on the road that do not know how to handle the conditions, especially if the roads are not taken care of. So maybe it is better that you were home rather than outside! But hey, hopefully you enjoyed your free off day to take care of a few things!

  4. Thanks Bert. Yeah, this beach snow (now ice) is stupid. Y'all folk who deal with it all the time definitely have it easier. Your roads are cared for and you have systems in place to make sure the infrastructure works. We'd be lucky to see a plow once a day here and the roads are never cleared properly and ice up as soon as the sun hits so they turn into a big rutted sheet of ice. Luckily, we're back in the 60's in a few days.
