  1. Nice long list paying you in December. Many familiar names that are seen in many DGI portfolios with some that you never see like DAL, SUNS and GGN to name a few. Again, just shows the variety of stocks/funds out there that can pay us all a passive income stream. Congrats on a nice Dec. sum. Good luck in '17!

    1. Keith,

      Good luck to you in 2017 too. It is shaping up to be a great year so far for many I think. I like having solid names mixed in with some of the unknown, but reasonably predictable names. We will see how they hold up throughout this year.

      Thanks for stopping again and all the support!

  2. quite a good list of dividend paying companies.

  3. Impressive list have some in common and yes the second main one is a special dividend. They do that twice a year really helps out.

    1. Dividendsandhobbies,

      I have a couple of those stocks that do that. It is a pretty nice setup.

  4. Talk about diversification! I think I count 40 dividend companies paying you through the month? That's great.

    Onto 2017!

    1. Dividend Stacker,

      Yeah a lot of payers and not so bad end to the year. 2017 should be even better!

  5. What a fantastic list of known companies that you have there. I am very jealous, as i am just starting my own portfolio.

    1. Buy, Hold Long,

      You will get there. Just keep on building that portfolio slow and steady. Add quality names for reasonable prices and stay diversified.
