Dividend Increase Effect On More Dividends

I am currently holding 69.593 shares of Bank of America. With this 25% increase it will add $8.36 to my Projected Annual Dividend Income.

Conclusion

Bank of America is one of my largest holdings. So whenever I get an increase it really makes an impact. Bank of America is a great company that I have been owning for years. Since I first started the position the share price has been trending upward. My only regret is that I didn’t buy more when it was so cheap. I will continue to hold this stock forever and hopefully receive increasing dividends over that same amount of time.



Regardless of how large or small, I love all dividend increases. That is how we end up with More Dividends 😉

As always I look forward to reading all of your comments and questions, until then….. happy investing!
