Investing Milestone

This morning I was pleasantly surprised to see that both McDonald's and Harris had paid out dividends to me.  I knew they were paying out this month but hadn't been paying close attention to when.  Harris's dividend pushed me over the $100 dividends received for the month and up to $125.56.  It's great getting paid to invest in solid companies.  I still have another 3 expected payouts this month which should take me up to around $165.  Sadly I'm not averaging that much every month but it's slowly building.  Baby steps is what I have to remember.

I hope everyone else is having a great month of dividends!

  1. Hi PIP,

    You are having a great month, keep up the good work. I hope to break $300 this month in dividends which would be a record for me, it should be close. Good luck!

  2. It has been a great month so far for dividends. Congrats on getting $300. My forward dividends are getting closer and closer to $1,000. If my 2 open puts are exercised I'll be over $1,000 in forward dividends. I can't wait to be averaging $100 for each month. Next month is going to have a bunch of fresh capital so hopefully the markets will cool down some.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Looks good. You'll quickly move up to $200/month as you add more capital, reinvest dividends, and watch your little workers increase their payments.

    1. That'll be awesome when I do. I have a good chunk of capital that'll be transferred soon to my brokerage account for next month's buying. I'm going to have to see where I end up at the end of this year but I plan on setting a really lofty dividend income goal. I know I'll fall short of my $1,000 for this year, but my forward dividends will pass that mark with another purchase or if my ADM put option is exercised.
