December Dividend Income

It is time to post my December, 2011 dividend income.

There are a few more stats for this month than usual.

Coca-Cola pays dividends in April, July, October and December. Other companies that pay dividends in April, July and October pay their other dividend of the year in January. For some reason Coca-Cola pushes that dividend forward one month. I thought they just did it last year because there was a chance the dividend tax rate could change. But paying one of them early seems to be the routine.

Another change is that RLI paid a regular quarterly dividend of 30 cents and a special dividend of $5.00. This is the second year in a row that they have paid a special dividend.

In September, 2011 my dividend income was $243.26. Without Coca-Cola or the special RLI dividend, my December, 2011 dividend income was $248.26. With the Coca-Cola dividend, my December income was $272.30. With both the Coca-Cola and special RLI dividends, my December, 2011 income was $514.94.
