The first month, January of 2017, is over. Now it is time to look at all the amazing dividend growth we received. Show me the Money (Cuba Gooding, Jr., Jerry Maguire).
We had a very impressive growth rate for January. In 2016, we earned $0.76 in dividends. We’re rich. Ok, we can almost buy a pop from the vending machines. But it 2017, we earned $65.14 in dividends. That is an 8,571% increase YoY (Year over Year). Just writing that makes me feel so excited. I realize that is a silly comparison, because we only receive one dividend last January on a small purchase of Realty Income (O). However, it is so fun to write down. In fact, I am going to do it again. I got an 8,571% increase YoY in dividends. Can you blame me? It is probably the last time I can write a number that big for increases (8,571%).
How did we Achieve that Amazing Dividend Growth?
Last year, we only had 4 shares of Realty Income (O). Now, we own 18 shares. Heck, our ownership of Realty Income (O) went up 450%, plus they had some dividend increases last year and this year already. And, we bought more dividend paying stocks. Investing money to make money.
