    Happy New Year, Scott!

    Congratulations on your year over year increase of 63% for December — that’s fantastic, and it looks like December was a record-setting month for you.

    I like how you express your Forward 12-Month Dividends as an hourly wage. Mine would be $7.63 right now — not quite minimum wage yet, but I’m working on it!

      Hi FerdiS,

      Thanks! Yep, December was another record for me but just barely. September was only $52 back. $7.63 is not bad at all for an hourly wage. You’ll be up to minimum wage in no time!

  3. Love looking at those quarter ending month spikes in your chart. Nice work. Glad you ended the year on a good note and a new record month!

    • scott says:

      Dividend Daze,

      Thanks! Yeah, the quarter ending spikes are pretty cool. It has been a great year, both personally, professionally, and from an investing standpoint. I’m looking forward to writing up the year end summary pretty soon.

  4. Steve says:

    Good job Scott, inspiring us all to do the same for sure. Keep up the good work and sharing.

      Thanks, Matthew. All the best to you in 2018 as well. I will be writing my 2017 summary pretty soon. Looking forward to reading over your 2017 year in review.

    The 2017 EOQ Month dividends are towering over the 2016 dividends. An extra 7.6k you wouldn’t have in your pocket if you didn’t invest. Congrats on a great year!


    • scott says:

      Money Hungry, the EOQ dividend months are always really fun to do. Each one should well be oven $1000 this year. I so much like reinvesting the dividends automatically that might be hard to start spending that money in retirement years, though that is still quite a few years off. I’m 34 and just started my career.

  7. Stellar December, Scott! Congrats on the monthly and yearly records. So many terrific companies paying you this month, with 5 of them breaking the $100 mark. I will be watching for the annual recap. Take care.

      Thanks, Engineering Dividends,

      The quarter ending months are always especially fun to write. The recap as well as some new content regarding cryptocurrency will be coming soon!

  8. DivHut says:

    Wow! Now that’s a total for December. Always nice seeing those four figure months come in. With a bout a dozen names in common paying us both last month it seems that we are pretty much on the same page of choosing where we get our dividends from. Keep it going strong in 2018!

  12. Scott – holy smokes. What an amazing month! Your growth over the last year has been great and seeing it laid out in the chart allows us all to take a step back and see all that you have accomplished in a short period of time. Keep on inspiring us all with these great results. 2018 is going to be a record setting year. I’ve got a great feeling about it.


  13. Chris says:

    That’s a nice chunk of change rolling your way for sure. And look at all of the companies that paid you. Even if one cuts a dividend, it will likely only be a small blip on the screen. Onward and upward in 2018!
