DFG March 2018 Dividend Income


The goal of dividend growth investing is to create an income stream from many companies that increase their dividend each year.  To protect the income stream they should also be a diversified set of stocks across the many sectors of the industry.  Let's see what companies worked for me and deposited those profits into my accounts.

This represents a 39% increase of dividends received in March of last year.  If I were to leave my current portfolio alone and not deposit any more cash, in 20 years I could retire and live off of it.  That gives me some solace as I continue my job search. 


I hope you had a great month.  I look forward to reading your updates.

Regards,

DFG

  1. Congrats on a double-digit increase this month compared to last year - a 39% increase is great and on track to be a four-figure number next year! I'm curious how April will turn out now :)

    Best wishes,

    1. Hopefully it continues even though OHI said it will have no dividend increases in 2018.
