Dividend Increase Effect On More Dividends
I am currently holding 12.543 shares of Archer Daniels Midland. With this 4.5% increase it will add $.75 to my Projected Annual Dividend Income.
I originally bought these shares a few years ago. Since that time the share price has went up and it has went down. Regardless, it has continued to pay me a growing dividend along the way.
It has been awhile since ADM has showed up on my radar. With the share price dipping close to my cost basis it would appear as though now would be a great time to do some research into possibly acquiring more shares.
Regardless of how large or small, I love all dividend increases. That is how we end up with More Dividends 😉
