The market is churning a lot, uncertainty is high but the one thing i can be sure of is that i will receive dividend payments of some sort.
This month i managed to pull in $1214.87* which is awesome, the same time last year i received $683.04. A step in the right direction.
* I had missed off several dividend payments which didn’t come through in my brokerage until this morning…bonus.
It looks like i am going to end up around $9000 for the year which is around where i was last year and somewhat off my original target of around $15000. That said, i think the next year and beyond will be a significant step forward in dividend income.
On top of this, i just passed a milestone of over $20000 in lifetime dividend earnings. I only started this journey 3 years ago and although it isn’t a massive amount, i haven’t really had to do too much to achieve this. I could of been significantly higher if i had stayed completely on dividends and not actively traded :P. It only feels like 5 minutes ago when i received my first dividend, i was so excited to see $2-5 dollars added to my brokerage account.
I have been buying and selling aggressively in the last month trying to position for rebounds on some really oversold stuff, the market will provide some amazing opportunities over the next few months – patience is key. Don’t get swayed by media emotion.
Have an amazing weekend.
