Dividend Increase Affect On More Dividends
I am currently holding 11.033 shares of Emerson Electric. With this 2% increase it will add an additional $0.45 to my projected annual dividend income and this doesn’t even take into account the compounding factor!
Emerson Electric is a great company with a very long history of increasing their dividends. I have been holding my shares for several years now. I have been very pleased with the company since I originally initiated my position. I would have liked to have seen a deal between Emerson and Rockwell Automation because I believe that would have been great for long term growth. Despite that though, the company has still performed well for me.
Given my current position and the strength that I see in the company, I intend to continue to hold these shares. Honestly, I would love to add to this position but it would require the share price to drop significantly to reach my cost basis. I am in this game for the long term so maybe I will eventually get to see that again.
Regardless of how large or small, I love all dividend increases. That is how we end up with More Dividends 😉
