2013 Dividend Income Goal
We finished the year with $7,014 in dividend income versus our 2012 year end goal of $6,700.
Our dividend income goal for 2013 to $7,500 by the end of the year.
$7,014 2012 Year End Dividend Income
$7,500 2013 Year End Dividend Income Goal
We continued to see many dividend increases this past year as we did in 2011 and 2010.
I plan to be a little more conservative with my stock purchases for 2012. I will focus on increasing stock purchases into our large blue chips stocks that will represent long term value. I will look to reduce some of my bank holding throughout 2012 as well.
Our long term goal is to have $30,000 in yearly dividend by retirement in 2024. Keep in mind, I don't consider this dividend stock portfolio diversified. I have most of our retirement assets in a diversified ETF portfolio with Vanguard.
