December Dividend Income

After 34 years of clocking in and out of work and religiously saving at least 10% annually in my 401K every year, my countdown to financial independence is in sight. Each month is a step closer and let’s look at how this past month is getting me there.

For the month of December I made $5,351.51; an increase of 23.74% versus this time last year. A large portion of this jump was from Newtek Business Services (NEWT) which was able to payout a massive dividend because of all the PPP loan originations.  Now that PPP loans are a thing of the past the dividends from NEWT will decline making Dec 2022 a tough month next year for year over year gains.

In December I received 7 dividend raise announcements from Amgen (AMGN), Broadcom (AVGO), CBIC (CM), Enbridge (ENB), Pfizer (PFE), W.P. Carey (WPC) and Waste Management (WM). I love this time of year as it signals the beginning of steady dividend raises that usually come in from December through March for the bulk of my portfolio.

On the home front we are dealing with some health issues with extended family members, which is a bit draining on me and the wife. There is a tale for expenses in this experience, but I will wait until after the crisis’s have been resolved before I share the story. Let’s see the things we all love to see…charts and dividend payouts:
