Dividend Update - March 2012

March was my highest dividend payout month so far. I had a total of 8 stocks payout in my brokerage and 2 in my Roth. I'm reinvesting dividends in all the stocks except for HAL since it already represents 1/3 of my portfolio and is also my source of income. Diversification right? Plus it's by no means a solid dividend or dividend growth stock.

April isn't looking like a great month for dividend payouts for me. Only around $10 should get paid out unfortunately but that's still $10 more that I got for nothing.

  1. Great job! Getting over $100 in dividends was the first "ah-ha" moment for me where I realized this strategy really can work. That's a great feeling.

    Keep up the good work!

    1. It definitely is encouraging to hit the $100 mark. The next step is to average $100 a month.
