January 2014 Dividend Income Update

The first month of 2014 is over. And what a month it was, for the first time in a while the soaring stock market took a breather. I have not bought anything yet, but my trigger finger is itchy. A lot of things look nice now. KO, PM, CVX, WMT all had decent pullbacks and are in the buy range for me. Problem is, I can't buy them all because I don't have the funds! I only have enough for one, I have more ideas than money at the moment. Without further ado, the dividends for January 2014:

Dividends Received

  • WMT: $9.87
  • DPS: $25.84
  • PM: $33.84
  • MO: $16.80
  • GE: $14.52
Total dividend income for January: $100.87

I set my new dividend goal for 2014 at $1500. So far I'm 6.7% of the way there, my progress is tracked here. Will I make it? Whatever the total dividends I will receive this year, I'm proud where I am in live and the portfolio I have build.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Congrats on crossing $100 in a typically slow month too! I know how you feel about more ideas than capital. Best of luck on getting to $1500 for the year.

    1. PIP,

      Yeah, January is definitely a light month. Not unexpected, however. I'm looking forward to seeing these numbers improve as 2014 progresses. Good luck with your aggressive goals in 2014!

      Best wishes.
