I made around $5000 of dividend stock purchases for the past month from new purchases and dividend distributions. The stock market was up for the month and we continue to see companies increasing their dividends this year.
I sold off shares of ACAS stock that was no longer paying dividend and will sell others that are not paying dividends throughout the year and add a few hundred dollars a month to our dividend paying stocks.
Most of my stocks are held in my Zecco Trading account and the rest are DRIPs. The dividends from my stocks are reinvested but I am keeping track of the amount of income I could receive once I retire or choose to receive the dividends in cash.
I will post my Top 20 Stock Holdings on Friday.
