Dividend Increase Effect On More Dividends
I am currently holding 7.353 shares of Procter & Gamble in the More Dividends portfolio. With this 6% increase it will add an additional $1.32 to my projected annual dividend income and this doesn’t even take into account the compounding factor!
Procter & Gamble is another great company like Johnson and Johnson. I wished that I had bought more P&G when I had the chance. If the price ever drops back to my cost basis then I would love to add to the position. Until then, I will have to be satisfied with collecting a steady growing dividend until then.
That doesn’t sound like such a bad plan.
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 Johnson and Johnson? 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!
