Each month I total up the dividends paid to me in the month as a way to track my progress towards financial freedom. The end goal is to have my dividends paid cover my expenses. This is a long term goal, so I have a lot of years to go, but I find it encouraging seeing my dividend income steadily grow over time. This reminds me that I’m on the right track and to stick with it.
My dividend income for March 2013:
Canadian Dividend Income
- Enbridge – $31.86
- Fortis – $34.65
- Sunlife – $36.00
Total Canadian Dividend Income – $102.51
US Dividend Income
- Aflac – $35.00
- Johnson & Johnson $31.96
- Pepsi – $62.09
Total US Dividend Income – $129.05
March was a good month for me. I recently purchased Intel, but I bought the shares after the dividend record date, so I missed out of the March payment. To see a full list of the companies currently in my portfolio check out my portfolio page.
