My total dividend payments for May were $103.17. I received dividends from 5 companies including VZ, CLX, BBVA, HAS and TGH. You can see the individual amounts on the Dividends tab.
My total forward 12-month dividends are now at $1607.59. I started the year around $1200. My goal is to get to $2000 by the end of the year. I have $392.41 to go. I will reach this by a combination of new purchases and dividend increases. If my purchases average 3.5% yields I would need to purchase $392.41/.035 or $11,211.71 worth of new stocks.
The majority of my dividend payers are in March/June/Sept./Dec. months so I expect to have a better June.
I’ve also submitted an offer on a house that was accepted so I should be moving out of my condo in about a month. That said, my purchases will be slim to none for another month. I hope the May correction lasts a little longer so I can hopefully pick up some great DG stocks in July & August.
