5 months in and things are humming along, i’m on track for a similar target to last year but i’m hoping to pick up some momentum in the second half. My dividend income for May came in at $943.16. In May 2014, i pulled in $905.89. About 40% of my capital available for stocks isn’t deployed into dividends so i am more than happy with the return while i wait to see how the other plays turn out. We’re going into an interesting ‘dull’ time for the summer but often things happen when we least expect it. I am waiting to see if a big shakeout happens, if so, i will continue to load up on Alibaba ( BABA ). I have a decent position in it already but looking to see if they punch it up soon or hold till later. I made some incremental stock purchases last month which will boost the dividend income between June and August. I was aiming for $13,000 this year but it maybe a stretch now, hoping to at least make $10,000.
Good luck out there.
