Welcome to my last 2016 income report, my December dividend income update. December is traditionally a heavy dividend income month. It was for me. I had my second largest dividend income month of the year. I’m really satisfied with where I ended up this past month and past year. I earned $796.87 in December dividend income. This amount added to my entire year of earnings totaled $6,259.72. This is a monthly average of $521.64. This is a sizable amount, especially considering I’ve been investing for a little over 2-years.
I set a goal of $7,500 in 2016 dividend income, I missed it by $1,240.28. But, I more than made up for it with options income. I wrote more about this in my 2016 Goals Retrospective post.

I was paid by dividends from 18 companies and 7 funds. The largest dividends came from my 401k small cap fund $174.31, and TGT, $60.00. My average daily dividend income totaled $26.56.
