So, we are half way through the year, and I’m pumped to share my dividend income report.
It’s only been 10 months since I modified my investing plan as a dividend growth investor, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision! I have had actual cash deposited into my account every month for doing nothing more than some research, clicking a mouse, and making some smart investment buys.
Below is the graph of the last 12 months of dividend income. It’s easy to see that I began this journey towards the end of last year when the monthly totals begin to rise.
I have already had three months of breaking $100 in dividend payments this year. I’m amazed!
I made some good buys right before some of the stocks hit their Ex-Dividend Date. So I was included in almost immediate distributions from the shares of companies that I bought. I always try to a buy stocks before their ex-dates.
Here is the Dividend Portfolio
This year I’ve already received over $535 in dividend payments. This puts me on track to break my 2015 dividend income goal of $1,000.
Now, I realize this isn’t anywhere close to enough money to live off of in retirement. This post is meant as a testament of the dividend investing strategy.
I started off small and should break $1,000 this year! I can’t wait to highlight the Growth portion of the strategy. I haven’t been doing it long enough to show meaningful numbers yet. But, they are coming.
Are you on track to reach your 2015 dividend goal?
