This is my favorite time of the month. I get to share my dividend income 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 March 2015 totaled $135.58.
One of my 2015 goals is to surpass $1,500 in dividends. I have currently received $288.79 or 19.3% of the way towards my goal. I am behind schedule, but I am not concerned. This month I purchased a bunch of stocks that pay fantastic dividends. Philip Morris, AT&T, and Bank of Nova Scotia yields will take me well past my $1500 goal.
