January 2017 Dividends and Passive Income Progress


I am being not very active with my stock investing because I am switching to real estate investing, so I am trying to accumulate more cash. Plus January was the month when I paid property taxes for my house.
I still plan to invest into my Loyal3 and Lending Club plus IRA and SEP-IRA but not so much into my regular brokerage account. But we will see.

So this month I did my Loyal3 and LendingClub purchases.

Dividends received January 2017:

VER$33.46
BNS$14.99
BCE$19.05
CHSP$16.02
CSAL$20.84

    1. thank you for your kind words! I think it's much easier to invest into stocks than to find a good real estate investment!

  2. Happy -

    Nice job and almost $300 in passive income/rewards/benefits. I'm pumped to see how you start the real estate investing track and the fruit that it bears for you. Are you using the dividend cash or reinvesting that dividend cash? Nice spread of names there.

    1. Thank you for stopping by Lanny. I reinvest all dividends automatically. I have some rental properties but I am trying to find fix and flip project right now. Really want to try it but in our area it is not so easy to find a property

  4. Great job on your return so far. It is great seeing that kind of return. I think you have made some smart choices diversifying your investments. I look forward to being able to continue reading about your journey. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Getting into the rental game I see. Seems like more of our fellow dividend bloggers are spreading their dollars into various income producing assets. We have seen many get into P2P lending, rentals, options premiums all in addition to dividend income. Does our community fear an impending market crash and is looking to diversify out of stocks? Seems like it. Nice total brought in for Jan 17 to start out the year. Look forward to reading your updates in real estate. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Keith. I do have rental properties but I really want to try myself in fix and flip property and also set my eyes on wholesales. I am studying for my real estate licence as well. so yes, trying to diversify my income through different sources. :)

  6. I too like Real Estate, the only issue/drawback I see with it is finding tenants that would take care of it. I have a 2 family and looking to expand, but it seems housing is more expensive than the market.

    1. I am really picky with my tenants. I use agents to help me and I don't mind to pay them because it helps a lot.

  7. The one thing that I love about your reports is that you show what your passive income was years ago and what it is now. I like that you have consistently tracked it to show that you didn't just start out making $500 a month in passive income.

    Great site by the way!

  8. Just received a check for $500.

    Sometimes people don't believe me when I tell them about how much money you can make by taking paid surveys online...

    So I show them a video of myself getting paid over $500 for doing paid surveys.
