Dividend Increase Effect On More Dividends

I am currently holding 14.966 shares of WestRock. With this 5.8% increase it will add $1.4966 to my Projected Annual Dividend Income.


WestRock is a great company. Their industry is very stable despite suffering from fluctuating prices. If WestRock is given approval for the Kapstone acquisition I think that the stock price could see a rebound. The company is solid and I will continue to acquire more shares if the price gets down to my cost basis. .

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