I plan on recording my monthly dividend payments on this blog for you all to see. I earned £9.88 in the whole of 2013, £590.33 in 2014, and I have a goal to earn £2,000 in Dividends for 2015. This post will collate all of the dividends I've received this month and how I'm tracking against my Dividend Goals. I will reveal which companies have paid, and how much they've contributed.
I have two accounts where I'm currently earning Dividends from - I have an ISA account with H&L, and a taxable share account with iWeb.
|April Dividend Payments:|
April's dividends were on track with my current 2015 average, which is now £103.46. To be on track with my 2015 Dividend Income Goal (£2,000) I need to bring in £167 per month. My dividend income is very sporadic so I'm not expecting to hit that amount every month, but I'm pleased to see my monthly figure close in on this average.
Over the course of 2014, my dividends averaged £49.19 per month. I received a dividend payment in every month last year, so I can now make a Year-on-Year comparison for every month. In April last year I received £12.16. This represents a 737% increase Year on Year.
|Dividends - 2015|
My monthly average is now at £103.46 after 4 months. My average last month was £104.02, so it hasn't made any ground, but it hasn't lost any either. May's Dividends are due to be my biggest ever by a fair margin, and June's are also very high for me. I'm hoping to be very close to the monthly average I need (£167) going into the second half of the year.
How was April for you? How are you getting on with your targets after 4 months?
