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!

    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 : )

    1. Yea, the spackle is still on hold. So busy with so many things right now. O's dividend reinvestment could be fun to watch!

  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.

    1. Those new dad days are tough right now. The bathroom is still a work in progress but hopefully this weekend I'll get some spackle completed.

  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.

  5. Great bunch of stocks there. I'm very familiar with what you're going through. I redid both of my bathrooms completely a couple years ago. Very hard work but as you say, very rewarding once you're finished. I just started another project in my basement, I may turn it into a small gym. Deadlift pad, squat rack and such. Well see how that goes. Best of luck.

    1. That basement sounds awesome! The bathroom is still a work in progress as the boy is not sleeping well right now and I am exhausted all the time lol. Hopefully this weekend I'll get back at it!

  7. O and OHI are geeting hammered but they are buying more stocks so it all works out when they go back up. Nice group of payers keep it up.

    1. You have that right! I might stop the OHI drip as I'm a little worried about the company but I'll wait for one more earnings report.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Currently, the market is very volatile and investors are looking for safe stocks to invest in. If you are looking for buying opportunities you might shift your focus to high dividend paying stocks. You can analyze the high dividend paying yield stocks of #SP500 here: http://bit.ly/2wQQmcC
