Dividend Increase Effect
I am currently holding 76.344 shares of Bank of America stock in the More Dividends portfolio. With this 5% increase it will add an additional $3.06 to my projected annual dividend income and this doesn’t even take into account the compounding factor! That brings my projected annual dividend income to a grand total of $1,811.65
Current Stock Position
Bank of America has been a good investment for me. I originally started this position at a time when all of the talking heads were saying not to buy the stock. I didn’t care. I started buying. Since that time the share price has not only doubled but the company has also started a streak of annual dividend increases.
I have no intentions of selling this position anytime soon. I will continue to let it run while the dividend compounds every quarter.
Currently, in this portfolio, I am holding stock in 3 different banks. Bank of America is the largest position then followed by JP Morgan & Chase and Wells Fargo.
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 Bank of America? 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!
