This is my favorite time of the month. I get to share my dividend income update with the world. I have found that sharing my investment wins and losses is a great way to keep me focused on my end goal. So, I guess I am saying thanks for reading my posts. You all inspire me to stay grounded and succeed. Although my monthly divided income is still not overly impressive, my dividend income is growing. My total dividend income received in February 2015 totaled $88.00.
One of my 2015 goals is to surpass $1,500 in dividends. I have currently received $140.33 or 9.4% of the way towards my goal. I am behind schedule, but this is expected because March is a big dividend income month for me. At the end of next month I will have a good indication if I will hit my $1,500 in dividends goal. I will also be adding a significant amount of investing dollars to my Investment Hunting portfolio in March once I leave my current job and move my 401k to an IRA.
February 2015 Dividend Income
Monthly Dividend Income Year-Over-Year
My Monthly Dividend Income chart looks favorable. This chart tracks my monthly dividend on a year over year basis. I have no year-over-year growth examples to share yet, because I received my first dividends in March 2014. However, looking at the graph, I have earned more in dividends in the first two months of 2015 than I did in most months last year. This trend indicates to me that I will be very happy with my progress on March 31st.
