Here is the dividend income report for January, 2013.
The income for the month was only $110.12. The income for January, 2012 was $188.68. This is because a lot of companies paid dividends early. This is the lowest monthly income since July, 2010, when I made $103.25.
(Is it proper to say I “made” dividend income? Technically, other people make it for me.)
A few of the accelerated dividends paid in December, 2012 were dividends that normally would have been paid in February, so I think that February’s numbers will also be lower.
Here are the stocks:
- Automatic Data Processing: $24.00
- Kimberly-Clark: $38.95
- Chubb Corp: $8.67
- Altria Group: $23.74
- Sysco Corp: $14.76
