December 2016 Recap

Here are the dividends I received during December.

  • XOM --- $92.95
  • PFE --- $91.56
  • BP --- $68.40
  • RDS-B --- $65.80
  • WFC --- $64.98
  • GM --- $62.01
  • KO --- $56.23
  • SO --- $50.70
  • TROW --- $40.60
  • MSFT --- $32.18
  • GILD --- $24.51
  • TGT --- $24.21
  • NEA --- $23.83
  • FLOW --- $19.20
  • MET --- $16.00
  • EMR --- $14.40
  • GS --- $7.83
  • ESV --- $0.70

Total dividends received in my taxable account are $757.09.

Total net capital invested is $25,708.30 which raised my yearly dividends by around $1000.00.

Overall December was a really solid month! It's nice to finally get the dividend income back up to a respectable level. NEA actually made an interest payment on the 1st and 30th so I may not get a payment in January.

I'm really excited about the upcoming year and will continue working diligently to reconstruct my portfolio. I have 37 income producers starting out for next year and will likely add 5 to 10 more throughout the year. My primary focus will be to build existing positions whenever possible.

On a final note, I would like to say that I am missing Dividend Hustler! That guy has some serious game and provides a shitload of motivation! I hope he reappears sometime soon. The dividend community is better off with his presence whether he has a portfolio filled with dividend stocks or just stone cold cash!

Hustler, I hope you reappear during the 2017!!

In the mean time everyone, in all areas of their lives, should continue to.......see below in bright red!!



  1. MDP -

    D A Y U M. There you go, wow - 25.7K invested in one month?! Unreal. Just sick. I agree, the plan for me next year is to add to my current positions as well.

    I have no idea where Hustler went, I hope he's okay. Definitely motivating - even if he started making big changes towards the end. Hope he pops up again sometime/somewhere.

    Congrats to killing the month off right MDP, stay hungry.


    1. Lanny,

      Stay hungry indeed! I can't wait to see what 2017 has in store for all of us! Big things ahead! Relentless empire building is cool shit!!


  2. Awesome job. Looks good. snowball really taking off now. I have a couple that have those odd months paying out but as long as they pay out. That's what I want to do also build up some positions then add a new one as I get a chance or a chance appears. Keep it up

    1. D&H,

      Definitely! A day or two difference in the pay dates is no big deal to me either. I look forward to adding to some of my lower weighted positions and actually need to add some more to my energy holdings.


  3. $750 would pay for many people's mortgages. That's a nice amount of passive money coming in. Several of those companies grow their dividends on a regular basis, so this will really add to the snowball going forward.

    1. Chris,

      I really glad to see a strong month and hopefully by the end of 2017 every month will be at least that much. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!


  4. Congrats on the dividend income for December! Really like the companies you are invested in. Safe and Stable with long histories. That is what I like to see

    1. MGUK,

      Absolutely. Even the oil companies have stabilized recently. I can't wait to keep adding more shares this year. Happy New Year!!
