Just as I was used to writing the date with 2012 and now I have to start all over with 2013! Oh well, a new year means new opportunities in life and in the world of investing.
With the uncertainty of the “Fiscal Cliff spending cuts” in the United States, it’s nice to know that my dividend income will still be coming through no matter what the outcome down south. If the stock markets take a turn for the worse, then there will be an excellent buy in opportunity. If the markets continue on an upward trend, then my stocks will just increase in value. It’s a win-win situation for a dividend stock investor.
Looking back through my spreadsheets for December 2011, my dividend income was $369.
I’m happy to announce that my dividend income for December 2012 was:
The increase of income was from dividend increases alone. In 2013 I’m hoping to re-invest some dividends and increase some of my holdings with the contributions in our TFSAs as well as from my new company. I never did reach $5000 in dividend income for 2012, but I hope to reach it and go beyond in 2013. With my only debt being my mortgage, I can really start focusing more on investing and really do some damage.
To my dozens and dozens of readers:
I wish you all the best in 2013 and may your dividends always increase!
Happy New Year!
