Dividend Income: January 2011

Dividend IncomeIt’s a new year and it’s time to share my Dividend Income update for January. I was quite happy with my 2011 income. I have to admit that I wasn’t sure what to expect but now that I have one year under my belt, it’s time to set a target. I finished 2010 with $3,752.79 and I would like to reach $5,000.00 for 2011. My dividend master spreadsheet estimates that I should earn approximately $4,544.00 based on today’s investments and yields. Is targeting 10% above estimate challenging enough?

Dividend Income

January is a big month. I haven’t been able to average my monthly dividend earnings and it’s not a priority either. My dividends are all re-invested with the exception of one investment as I don’t have enough for a synthetic DRIP.
