This is a historical Snap Shot of the growth of my Dividends over the last 10 years.
I made a serious push in 2012 and 2017 to concentrate funds towards this portfolio.
Once again in 2019, I am pushing at about a rate of at least $3,000 new dollars every month. This is deposits and plowing dividends back in.
The ultimate goal is get $1,500 a month from this portfolio in passive income.
It is truly lovely when your money starts to make you more money.
At my target rate for dividend paying stocks (3.5%) that would take a portfolio worth about $ 514,285.
The current portfolio is sitting at a touch over $340,000. Link Here.
Dividends are on track to cross $10,000 this year.
At a ZERO Percentage stock growth, I need 4.5 years to hit this goal. I put into about $45,000 per year (at the current pace).
I figure that pace may slow, but might be counteracted by ANY natural market growth of the overall portfolio.
Something to shoot for!
