Start of a brand new year and it has been a good one! When compared historically, this is biggest dividend income received for the month of January ever. It is really starting to take off and some special dividends help a lot. But anyways, I enjoy publishing these monthly dividend income reports as I have gained a much better understanding in how much of my passive income is coming in every month and how much it is growing over time. For the month of January I have received a total of 12 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. Lets dive deep!

 The Buckle, Inc. (BKE) $66.90
Total $312.75

When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from January 2017 to January 2018, it represents a positive 41.8% for a year over year increased dividend income growth.

Please note that The Buckle, Inc. (BKE) paid out a special dividend on top of a regular dividend, just in case you were wondering how a $700 investment can return such a high payout. This special dividend marks their 10th straight annual payout in a row.

I will DRIP the following upcoming month: BKE, KMI, VIAB & VYM.

The dividend income page is updated accordingly.

With this recent acquisition I went with Erie Indemnity Co. (ERIE) as it has been on my watch list for some time now and one of my alerts notified that it was sale, well somewhat. Not a total steal here, but still got a fairly valued price. This is as boring as a company business can get – insurance… Insurance has been around for centuries and I am not seeing it going away well basically ever. I also believe that this is a great insurance for my “The Dividend Machine” if it ever breaks down. That was a joke guys and gals try to relax! Essentially, I like this ancient insurance business model as my other two holdings Aflac, Inc. (AFL) and Travelers Companies, Inc. (TRV) have done great by paying and growing dividends as well as steadily increasing in price. Oh also one last note, I am a longterm customer and their rates are even better than any other insurers (even some very Military friendly ones) and Erie still beat them! Has to be something right? Competitive or Non-Competative advantage?

With the recent drama going around with AT&T, Inc. (T) regarding the ongoing acquisition of Time Warner, a perfect catalyst was created for this very recent purchase of additional shares of one of my favorite companies in the good old Stock Market. This is exactly what I look for when acquiring a small fraction of a great business, some sort of news, either internal or external to create a golden acquisition opportunities where I can buy at a much bigger discount and essentially lock into a great business with a reasonable margin of safety. This is what Dividend Growth Investing is, building an income that is reliable, predictable and increasing.

Another one bites the dust! Once more I aim to rebalance the portfolio and get rid of the non-performers in order to seek Dividend Growth Investing perfection. I decided to go ahead and entirely sell out of my  T. Rowe Price Group, Inc. (TROW) position since I believe the investment field for everyday investors is changing very rapidly. Away to the mutual funds and in with the low cost exchange trader funds (ETF). Now don’t get me wrong it is still a good investment, but I am looking for great investments.

  • Changing Investment Industry
  • No Longer Want to be Invested in the Sector
  • Better Opportunities Elsewhere

I sold all 12.748 shares of T. Rowe Price Group, Inc. (TROW) for the price of $95.15 per share for a total recoupment of $1,212.97 subtracting of around $29.06 to my annual dividend income.

Recently, I purchased some shares of Altria Group, Inc. (MO) for the very first time into my portfolio and lucky me, the price kept going and going down all the way to around $61 per share. I knew all the short terms fears would be paying off big time especially in long term perspective since the whole story created huge fluctuation for the stock price. Well, I essentially dollar cost averaged and purchased some more shares of this starwort tobacco business. What is not to love here?

As much as I hate selling any portion of my dividend income portfolio assets, this one needed to be severed from the rest of the group. I chose to go ahead and sell out of ConocoPhillips (COP) position entirely as its fundamentals, growth and future dividend has been greatly diminished. The company put a real sour taste in my mouth when the dividend was cut by more than half in early 2016 and therefore it is dead to me now. The stock price has recovered since then, which brought a good point to sell the asset at par of what I originally purchased for, not counting dividends received. Much better opportunities are out there and my money was waisting owning a piece of this business. Here are a few main reasons for the recent sale of the stock.

  • Reduction of dividend by 66.2% OUCH!
  • Destroyed its consecutive annual dividend growth streak
  • Payout Ratio is highly unstable
  • Unknown future for the dividend growth

I sold all 19.163 shares of ConocoPhillips (COP) for the price of $50.05 per share for a total recoupment of $959.11 subtracting of around $20.31 to my annual dividend income.
