January 2015 Income
Thanks to a special dividend from Ventas of $4.79 that I was not expecting, I was able to just break $100. January is my lowest dividend collecting month as BAX, CSCO, GE, and O only provide the meaningful contributions. DIS also pays this month but only contributed $2.62 since it is still such a small position. DIS only pays annually every January so eventually my DIS dividend will help bring up the January dividend payout.
In total, I received $100.14 in dividends for January 2015. Last January I received $60.83 so this year is an increase of 64.6%. Not too shabby. Also, while my average is well over $100/month, it is cool to see that I will now no longer have any month that I make less than $100 in dividends.
Options: I don’t have any currently open put options.
