Dividend Increase Effect On More Dividends
I am currently holding 10.582 shares of Wells Fargo. With this 10.3% increase it will add $1.69 to my Projected Annual Dividend Income.
Today, Wells Fargo announced this dividend increase. I have been holding stock in the company for a couple of years now. So far I have rode the wave up, then when all the scandals was happening I rode it back down. Luckily for me I have continued to hold the stock as it has restarted it’s upward trend. Like a lot of financial companies that passed the stress test they have decided to raise their dividend. I will continue to hold the stock for many more increases to come!
Regardless of how large or small, I love all dividend increases. That is how we end up with More Dividends 😉
