Good Morning fellow investors,
I know its July, but I wanted to take a moment and share how well the dividend growth has been going and compare that to last years results. I know lately I have been seeing monthly dividend numbers in the $10 and have been getting discouraged, seeing this years results by quarter compared to last years really opened my eyes to how quickly I was growing. In the chart below you can see that this year we are 86% better for Q1 and 69% better for Q2 pretty AWESOME!!
|Q1 Total||$ 21.86||$ 11.74||86.20%|
|Q2 Total||$ 26.38||$ 15.57||69.43%|
|Q3 Total||$ –||$ 18.92||-100.00%|
|Q4 Total||$ –||$ 20.57||-100.00%|
|Total||$ 48.24||$ 66.80||-27.78%|
Since I have started this journey I have invested $1754, that amount is now worth $2141 and grows by dividends and reinvesting those funds. The next chart I would like to share is 2017 and 2018 thus far by month. You can clearly see that every single month now generates more dividend income than last year.
|January||$ 6.65||$ 9.98||50.08%|
|February||$ 0.98||$ 3.67||274.49%|
|March||$ 4.11||$ 8.21||99.76%|
|April||$ 7.08||$ 14.09||99.01%|
|May||$ 2.18||$ 5.21||138.99%|
|June||$ 6.31||$ 7.08||12.20%|
The next step for me is to keep plugging away. I will continue to update you all as we progress and I hope you do the same in the comment section. I’m a ways off of being able to live off these dividends but it is moving in the right direction!
Thanks for reading
