Dividend Increase Effect On More Dividends
I am currently holding 21.212 shares of Exxon Mobil. With this 6.1% increase, it will add $4.24 to my Projected Annual Dividend Income and thats not taking into account the compounding factor!
Exxon Mobil is one of my oldest positions. It has been great so far. My only regret is that I didn’t add more when the share price was so cheap. Unfortunately, I was already weighted kind of heavy with them at the time. Looking back now, I wish I would have went ahead and bought more and evened out the weighting later. Maybe I will get a chance in the future to correct this.
Regardless of how large or small, I love all dividend increases. That is how we end up with More Dividends 😉
