My heavy hitters weren’t in the line up this month but comparatively speaking, I am doing better than the last quarter and better than last year when I compare with December 2010 and March 2010. See the numbers below. Remember that it’s a marathon and dividend increases just started coming in again after being on hold for 1 or 2 years by many companies. Compound growth should be seen in the near future!
My dividend income for March 2011 is $277.76 compared with $216.65 for March 2010. That’s nearly a 28% increase over last year. I injected approximately $9,600 over the past year across all accounts to drive the extra dividends along with the recent dividend increase. Can you see the dividend increase pattern? Each month in a quarter trends higher quarter after quarter.
