Over $5000 distributions and dividends!

17 Dec

Yes, I’ve finally succeeded in collecting over $5000 in distribution/dividends for 2013!  But I sold out my Chemtrade which was a heavy producer in my dividend portfolio.  I should have just kept Chemtrade as they went up and beyond what I sold them at.  I always sell at the wrong time.  SIGH.

For 2014, I do not expect to collect as much dividends/drips as most of my investments are in Google, Mastercard, Visa which doesn’t pay or pays little out for dividends.  Just as long they move up steadily in the market place then I’m happy.

      I cheated… I included drips in my calculations…

        maybe its not cheating 😛 since DRIP is still money, you just chose to reinvest it automatically vs collect cash + reinvest yourself

      Ah you are very close! I’m sure it will continue to grow bigger as time passes on.
