December Dividend Income

After 33 years of clocking in and out of work and religiously saving 10% annually in my 401K every year, in good times and bad, I have decided to share my monthly dividend income to show what regular saving and investing can accomplish.

For the month of December I made $4,324.88; an increase of +39.93% versus this time last year. I was hoping to hit my very first $4K month and was shocked when I blew by it by $300.

My buying in large quantities has slowed down quite a bit since November as valuations rose significantly across the board. I’ll continue buying in small lots and going into January here are the stocks on my watch list; AbbVie (ABBV), Allete (ALE), BCE Inc (BCE), J.M. Smucker (SJM), Lockheed Martin (LMT), 3M (MMM), Unilever (UL), Verizon (VZ) and Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA).
