Well f$#%, like April my dividend total for July was $0. That is not the best way to start out the back half of the year. Oh well, I will keep planting seeds and the dividends will come in time.
Today was my last day to hopefully receive some sort of dividend payment, but when I opened my Sharebuilder account, I noticed the VZ (August payment) was sitting there. At least August is starting off with a bang!
Just for reference, here are the results from last July. Wow a 100% drop....I have shitload of work to do. I keep changing my 2016 dividend goals and now I am thinking $3500-$4000 by year end. I wish PM and T would break down and come back to more reasonable levels, but those rascals have been damn resilient. I'll keep adding here and there and am ready for a massive drop that I still believe will happen as we get closer to the election.
Anyway here is the summary of investments I made in July.
- M --- $3483.70
- RDS-b --- $2008.92
- NEA --- $1607.12
- DEO --- $1584.99
Total July capital invested in my taxable account is $8684.73 and should add $420.76 to my yearly dividends.
Forward dividends are around $3200.
