Goals update October 2014

I like to review the progress at least once a month to determine where I am with respect to meeting/achieving my goals.

These are the goals for 2014:

  • Invest at least $30,000
    • With new investments of $2,729.40 (UN and Regular Sharebuilder purchases) in October, I have invested $28,074.75 so far in 2014 until end of October.
    • With the weekly sharebuilder purchases planned, I should be able to hit this goal in December.
  • Receive at least $1,500 in dividends
    • With an extra $204.97 in October dividends, the total for the year has hit $1,285.97 which represents 85.68% of my goal.
    • With the projections, it looks like I will be hitting this goal in December.
  • Achieve at least $2,200 in projected annual dividends
    • With the new purchases in the recent months and dividend increases announced, my current projected annual dividends stand at $2,128.70.
    • This goal is going to be really close. I might hit this goal early December with the weekly purchases, but I am still not sure how ARCP will play out. ARCP currently contributes $125.00 towards my annual projections. So if ARCP cuts the dividend, I might end up being short on this goal.

The goals page has been updated to reflect the progress until this month.

  1. Man, you’ve had a hell of a year… $30k invested, $1,500 of dividends received, and pretty close to $2,200 of forward 12-month dividends. All around, you’ve set yourself up to have a pretty rewarding 2015 by building a really solid foundation for future growth.

  2. Thanks for sharing your investment and dividend income goals with us. Seems like your are very much on track to have a successful 2014. ARCP is the big question mark in many dividend growth portfolios. I have seen a few of the bloggers already sell out of their positions. Look forward to your next update.
