Dividends Over 10 Years Time

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!

P.S. I also keep track of my Historical Net Worth Growth since 2006. If you would like to check it out, click here.

dividends (plural noun)
  1. a sum of money paid regularly (typically quarterly) by a company to its shareholders out of its profits (or reserves).

A dividend is a distribution of profits by a corporation to its shareholders. When a corporation earns a profit or surplus, it is able to pay a proportion of the profit as a dividend to shareholders. Any amount not distributed is taken to be re-invested in the business (called retained earnings). The current year profit as well as the retained earnings of previous years are available for distribution; a corporation usually is prohibited from paying a dividend out of its capital. Distribution to shareholders may be in cash (usually a deposit into a bank account) or, if the corporation has a dividend reinvestment plan, the amount can be paid by the issue of further shares or by share repurchase. In some cases, the distribution may be of assets.

  1. that’s a good looking curve. i had a non-dividend stock go up 27% today. it’s great the way that plot would be non-linear and exponential in nature if you were to fit it in excel due to div. growth and compounding. doug henning use to say “magic is illusion” but this is fo-real.

  2. What is truly amazing is when you reach a tipping point where your portfolio/investments start bringing in more money than you initially contribute each year. It truly does snowball from there.

    • Well for 2017 it was a grueling Trial by Ordeal where all the hopefuls were hung upside down while a bag full of rapid weasels was put over their heads, last one to scream got the award.
      I got lucky, for 2018 it was just a PoP-Locking competition and pagans are not exactly known for their sweet moves on the dance floor, I qualified easily.

Let's get things nice and sparkling clear
