Dividend Increase Effect On More Dividends
I am currently holding 19.108 shares of Target. With this 3.2% increase it will add $1.52 to my Projected Annual Dividend Income.
Today, Target announced this dividend increase. The company has done great for me so far. I was able to start a position on the way down and I have been riding the stock on the way back up. If it were to drop below my cost basis It would be a stock that I would consider buying more of but I have no intentions of adding to this position at the current moment.
Regardless of how large or small, I love all dividend increases. That is how we end up with More Dividends 😉
Do you currently hold any stock in Target? What do you think of this dividend increase? Just let me know in the comments.
As always I look forward to reading all of your comments and questions, until then….. happy investing!
