January Dividend Income

After 35 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 January I made $3,699.22; an increase of 19.41% versus this time last year. January was a pretty cold month with lots of snow but this increase kept me pretty warm :).   Markets were crazy but my portfolio held up well most likely due to investors rotating into value and/or dividend paying stocks.

In January I received 5 dividend raise announcements from Chevron (CVX), Fastenal (FAST), GATX Corp (GATX), Independent Bank Corp (IBCP), and Kimberly-Clark Corp (KMB) which all together add $30.79 to my annual forward dividend.

On the home front we are still dealing with health issues with extended family members, but some of the craziness has settled down.  My job on the other hand has been a bit more demanding but it may just be people all energized for a new year. As much as I have enjoyed my career, I am noticing the closer I get to FI the less patience I’m having with the job and co-workers. Guess we can call this the FI effect (lol)!  Let’s see the things we all love to see…charts and dividend payouts:
