Dividend Increase Effect On More Dividends
I am currently holding 22.347 shares of Pfizer. With this 5.9% increase it will add $1.89 to my Projected Annual Dividend Income.
I have held this Pfizer Inc. position for a couple of years now. I haven’t added to it in awhile but if the price dropped below my cost basis I would be glad to buy some more. Until that happens I will just have to continue to enjoy these dividend increases.
Regardless of how large or small, I love all dividend increases. That is how we end up with More Dividends 😉
