December 2018 Dividend Income

The following is my dividend history for my portfolio going back to January of 2008. I promise to eventually go back further, but in the meantime…

December of 2018 saw my dividend income top out at $2,804.07 (my second best month ever) an increase of 8.69% from December 2017. YTD for 2018, I had a total of $26,227.75 in divided income (a new annual high), representing a 15.74% YOY increase for 2018.  Q4 of 2018 was my new all time high in quarterly dividend income coming in at $7141.57 for the quarter.  Also, in 2018, since I have started to track this data since 2008, I have now crossed over $100,000 in lifetime dividends.  It’s also sweet that I have only paid 15% taxes on this money, and even 0% in some years where I have really sheltered my income from taxes.

Dividends are a beautiful thing. I compare dividend stocks to being a landlord. Every month, I collect dividends (rent) and over time I am seeing the value of the stocks (think the property) rise. The beautiful thing of dividends, I don’t worry if the tenant will pay, or destroy the property. If I want to sell the property (stock), it just cost a few bucks and can be executed in seconds to raise capital. It’s also super easy to get the current value of the stocks, unlike in housing where comp sales can make a difference in value.  When you have enough dividend income to live off, it also helps distract you from market fluctuations.  Take Q4 2018, for example, it was shit.  It didn’t bother me though.  I stayed put, invested in the market, and continued to collect my dividends, even reinvesting the dividends, and occasionally buying some stocks.

So without further adieu, my portfolios dividend history dating back to January of 2008. Please notice the tabs at the bottom of the excel spreadsheet (monthly, quarterly, annual).

And for now for some charts.




So, why do I even bother sharing this information every month. I want readers to notice a couple things and encourage anyone who is in the earlier stages of building up there financial assets. When you’re starting out it may feel like you aren’t making any progress towards your goals. You may only have a couple bucks in dividends for the month. Don’t give up and keep at it. Notice how the charts are showing a slow and steady progress with the amount of dividend income increasing, slowly but surely over time.  In December of 2008, I had $385.57 in dividend income. Fast forward a decade later and I am getting passive dividend income off my portfolio of $2804.07 (for December 2018), resulting in growth in my dividend income of 627% during that decade. That wasn’t much time that passed to build up to this point.

The other thing I want you to notice. Look closely at those figures and charts. You see how it is continually growing over time. My lifetime dividend income since starting in 2008 is only $101,311.49. But look again at those charts. Since 2016, I have received a total of $62,955.12 in dividends. Those 3 years alone account for 62.14% of my dividend income over the last decade. This wasn’t a fluke or luck, it was planned and can be replicated by you. My December 2018 dividends alone are almost greater than what I received in all of 2008. So while you may feel like you’re not seeing rapid growth of you passive income, give it time…

It’s like the snowball effect., you just have to start and get it rolling.
