January 2014 Dividend Update

January started off the year with a decent amount of dividend income.  I am posting this update rather late, but have been really busy working 40 hours every week and taking a Statistics class and accelerated online MSOffice class.  I really do appreciate the support of all the dividend bloggers and the dividend updates they post.  Just a few days ago the ARCP and COLE merger closed and my shares were increased in ARCP.  Not too happy about another $20 reorganization fee from the brokerage.  It is a great way to inspire each other to keep on improving our income.  Here is my January dividend update:

    1. Dividendasaur,

      Congrats on joining us and starting your own blog and dividend journey! Thank you for the kind words. I look forward to following along with your progress!

  2. Wow you own a lot of stocks.

    1. Anonymous,

      I do own a lot of stocks. There are a couple benefits I think of having such a wide range of stocks. Diversification of income in case one was to cut their dividend there are several to back them up is. Another is the diversification among several industries. Yet another reason and possibly one of my favorites is having several monthly paying dividend stocks being spread around so I am being paid several days each week from my ownership in these businesses.

      Thanks for stopping in and the comment!

  3. I own lots of different things too. I love the monthly payers as well. Great progress and great blog!!

    1. Dexter,

      I think owning a wide range of investments and especially being diversified is a good strategy. I may end up with several more stocks then most people, but does not make my strategy any better then them. I've had a couple dividend cuts before, but with price drops, the yield is still high. Not that I welcome a cut, but it can be expected to happen when owning so many stocks.

      It seems to be working well for you too! Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to keeping in touch.
