Dividend Income - January 2018

Hi Everyone,

Quick post as being a new dad is tough and we are remodeling our bathroom right now.  We only had a shower pan in the bathroom because the previous owner was an old lady and could not lift her leg over the bathtub wall.  Anyways, this past weekend I ripped that shower out put the new tub in.  New plumbing, water lines, sheetrock all around, it was exhausting and rewarding all at the same time.  Just need to tile the floor this coming weekend and put back the toilet and vanity and then things are looking up!  The mundane and difficult task of spackle awaits me the following weekend.  But now, on to the reason why you clicked...

PEP  --  $34.56
O  --  $38.68
CSCO  --  $88.52
M.M.  --  .53

Total:  $162.29

A relatively weak month but O's monthly check will be much needed in the months to come.  The portfolio has been hammered much harder than the market recently.  OHI & O are really hurting the portfolio but the dividends will roll in the month and hopefully by stock at these cheaper prices.  One can only hope!

Hope everyone had a nice January!



  1. Nice income. Look at the positive if o drips some more you can drip it. That would be huge!

    Keep it up

  2. ADD -

    Whoa - def. hard work but rewarding, can understand that no doubt. I am sure you want it done as soon as you can and you will. Big congrats on the divvies and it's okay if their market values are declining, better on the reinvestment : )


  3. The REITs continue to bleed but as long as they keep paying I'm cool. Nice job for your January total. Try to get some sleep when you can. I remember those new dad days all too well.

  4. It was nice that the portfolio kept working while you did the same with the bathroom remodel. I think PEP, O, and CSCO all had some nice dividend raises recently, so more income for you next quarter! Way to go.
