I received a total of $86.49 in dividends in my FI portfolio in May and have received a total of $591.30 through the first 5 months. Unfortunately no companies paid out in my Roth IRA so I'm still at a total of $58.41. I was originally hoping to receive closer to $2,750 in dividends in 2013, but I don't really expect to see that target get hit. Although the goal does include option premium income and interest as well, which I will surpass that goal since I'm now up to $1,108.65 in option premium income this year. My FI portfolio forward dividends sit at $2,543.08 and in my Roth they are at $221.88. The FI portfolio forward dividends are now 72.66% of the way towards my goal of $3,500 by the end of 2013. Assuming an average YOC of 3.50% on new purchases, I'll have to invest another $29k between now and the end of the year. Considering my open puts and cash position I should be able to hit that mark if the markets can have a solid 10% pullback to bring valuations down to more interesting levels.
