My goals were defined in this December 1, 2007 Investing Goals post. Below is an updated version of the table found in the original post.
|Div. Changes YTD||28||0.06%|

For the month, annualized dividend income increased $90, and Yield on Cost (YOC) increased 0.13%. These changes were driven by new purchases, dividend changes and sales. Let's examine each of the these categories:
Purchases: The $951 increase in annual dividend income and 0.46% increase in YOC related to the following purchases (yield at the time of purchase):
- $103 CTL (10.10%)
- $33 KO (3.26%)
- $40 CAT (4.00%)
- $65 TEG (6.63%)
- $108 NNN (10.85%)
- $64 PGN (6.51%)
- $99 VNQ (9.75%)
- $439 ETO (17.27%)
Since both of the securities sold were in my risky category, I was comfortable spreading the funds over several risky investments (CTL, NNN, VNQ and ETO).
Dividend Changes: The ($18) decrease in annual dividend income and (0.02%) decrease in YOC related to the following dividend changes (a=dividend stated in annual terms, q=quarterly, m=monthly):
- ($18) RY $0.47755q>$0.40623q (0.02%)
Sales: The ($843) decrease in annual dividend income and (0.31%) decrease in YOC related to the following two stocks that cut their dividend and were immediately sold.
- ($519) : FR : (0.14%)
- ($324) : ACAS : (0.17%)
