Dividend Increase Affect On More Dividends
I am currently holding 20.47 shares of Cardinal Health in the More Dividends portfolio. With this 1% increase it will add an additional $0.40 to my projected annual dividend income and this doesn’t even take into account the compounding factor!
Cardinal Health has been in my portfolio for some time now.
If I am being completely honest, I would have to review the company to have a true point of view on them.
So currently, I would just continue to hold the position until I felt better educated on what I should do with it.
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 Cardinal Health? 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!
