The second month of the quarter is the slowest month for me in terms of dividends. In fact, as you can see the chart below, it was so less until late 2012 before AAPL started paying dividends. Even with that, the second month of the quarter was much less compared to my annual dividends. But something is better than nothing I guess 🙂
Here are the dividends for May 2014.
|Stock||Dividend||Difference from Last year||% diff from last year|
Dividends from AAPL has increased compared to last year due to additional purchases and dividend growth. GIS and PG also increased the dividends from last year. Also, the dividends from my purchases of ARCP and KMP this year has started rolling in. Overall, the dividends has increased by $64.00 over May of last year which represents about 230.88% improvement. I am sure that I will not be able to sustain such percentage growth, but an increase of $64.00 YoY is really good.
Progress for 2014:
With May dividends, my total for the year stands at $512.20 which represents 42.68% of my 2014 target of $1,200.00. With the new investments, I hope to achieve this target comfortably.
The dividends page will be updated to reflect the April dividends.
