Dividend Income Report – December 2018

Happy New Year

It’s official. 2018 is over! This is the final dividend income report for 2018. The year went by so fast. It’s crazy. I remember I started the year very excited. I made numerous goals and was looking forward to achieving them throughout the year. In another post, I will write about the extent to which I’ve achieved my yearly goals. But, all of a sudden, it seems I am right back to where the year started, creating new goals and again excited for a new year. So let’s get right to it and break down the dividend income report for 2018 one last time.

Dividend Income

In December, I received a total of $140.24 in dividends broken down as follows:

1PFEPfizer $13.20
2GWWW.W. Grainger $8.04
3MMM3M Company $11.79
4ORealty Income $8.45
5KOCoca Cola $14.58
6MCDMcDonalds $12.09
7EMREmerson $12.31
8XOMExxon $36.85
9JNJJohnson & Johnson $22.93

Not too bad. One of the things I’ve noticed is that KO pays out in both October and December. Still, the dividends are moving in the right direction. And, as indicated in my last post, I keep building shares, which I do by reinvesting the dividends back into the portfolio. Not a bad way to finish the year.

Annual Comparison

Below is a graphical representation of my dividends this year as compared to last:

Here is the raw data:

April$0.41 $31.47 7575.61%
May$2.85 $79.33 2683.51%
June$16.89 $98.51 483.24%
July$5.99 $42.32 606.51%
August$21.95 $108.44 394.03%
September$28.72 $111.15 287.01%
October$23.21 $48.09 107.20%
November$62.11 $124.92 101.13%
December$76.51 $140.24 83.30%

As you can see, the percentage rate is going down but an 83.3% increase from last year is still pretty good. I suspect that next year’s number might not be so great based on the reduction of my contribution to my portfolio, but only time will tell. In the meantime, I’ll enjoy the fact that I finished 2018 strong!

Forward Annual Dividends

At the time of this writing, my Forward Annual Dividends is $1282.03. A month ago, my forward annual dividends was $1246.31. This represents an increase of $36.12 or 2.89% in my forward annual dividend income. I’m getting closer to that $1500 mark, which will happen 2019. But it might take a little longer than I would have liked because of that pesky reduction in minimum contribution. But, slow and steady wins the race!


2018 is over but there’s a whole new year to look forward to. It’s very exciting. 2019 will sure bring challenges but I fully expect it will also bring opportunities, for all of us. I hope we all have a Happy New Year!
