Ha – eat that Bert, I’m going to give our readers two months worth, step your dividend game up Bert. All kidding aside, these will be the fun posts to put out there for the readers and it helps keep us all on track, think of different investments and share a bond.
March: I received a total of $615.32 of dividends broken out by the following:
This was honestly the best month I have ever received, and encompassed essentially 1/3 of my dividend income in total last year! That’s what dividend investing is all about. March purchases were:
- Phillip Morris (PM) ~19 shares for a total addition of $70 to my dividend annual total
April: I received a total of $147.70 of dividends broken out by the following:
This amount of $147.70 beats the crap out of the April 2013 amount of $52.02. I know this was due to capital infusion into stocks that pay dividends in April, paired with dividend increases from PM, TOT and CM over the course of the year. I’ll take close to 3x more income from the prior year any day. In a post I’ll talk about my expenses per month and what % the dividend income covers that, as that is the true goal. April purchases were:
- Kinder Morgan (KMI) ~62 shares for a total addition of $107 to my dividend annual total
- Realty Income (O) ~66 shares for a total addition of $144 to my dividend annual total
Making moves those two months, as that totaled $763 in dividend income and those larger capital infusions added $321 to my projected annual goal, currently standing at $3,350 for the year. Cheers to the month of March and April, excited for May and June. Truly am blessed to be able to have the means to purchase these stocks and also to start at this age, to hopefully have this snowball impact over the next 5-10 years. Excited for the future and the time horizon is becoming shorter. What are you purchasing during these high valuation times? Any good buys? Thanks all for stopping by.
