It is a high time to look at my dividend income in 2016.
Well, as you know I have just started building my portfolio, so do not expect millions of USD Also keep in mind, that for example I bought CAH too late to get any dividend in 2016. Brief summary is presented below:
Altogether it gives $205.94 in gross dividends, which is not a bad result.
For now 2017 dividends are not known. I hope they will increase as financial situation of portfolio companies is good. How much I expect for the next year?
Assuming value of portfolio of around 14 300 and expected dividend yield 2.5% gives around $350 in gross dividends. I see some upside coming from:
- new purchases
- special dividends, I expect special dividend in BEN
Summing up, everything is going well and I hope that every single year I will see an increase in dividends received!
