Dividend Update: January 2019

It’s time for my favorite type of post: a tally of the dividends I received in the prior month.

Given my strategy of DGI, it is really the dividend payouts that I care about. For each of the companies I invest in, I like to see a steady and growing stream of dividend payouts.

So how did I do in January?

Last month 16 companies sent me a dividend payout, adding up to a total of $494.

The following table shows the tickers of the companies that made a January 2019 dividend payout to my portfolio

The table features the dividend amount I received and any change in payout as compared to the last pay-out moment.

Ticker Dividends Received Dividend per Share Change
HBAN $21.00
KMB $50.00
PEP $37.10
HASI $16.50
DIS $35.20 4.76%
EQR $10.80
VTR $12.68 0.32%
WPC $72.10 0.49%
STAG $5.92
CAH $38.10
PEB $8.46
CSCO $33.00
CLDT $11.00
BNS $38.44 -0.99%
BBL $91.80 Special Dividend
JPM $12.00
TOTAL 494.10


The fact that 16 companies sent me dividend checks is great in and of itself, but four of them decided to raise their pay-out this month.

The ‘House of the Mouse’ - Disney - provided the biggest regular dividend raise for me this month, albeit just 4.76%. 

BHP Billiton on the other hand, dug up a massive special dividend this January.

Comparing the dividend payout of January 2018 to January 2019 shows an increase of $266 to $494- a Year-on-Year (YoY) growth of 86%.

This YoY growth is featured in the table below.
