My goals were defined in this December 1, 2007 Investing Goals post and last updated in my 2012 Investing Goals post. Below is an updated version of the table found in the original post.
|Div. Changes YTD||227||0.05%|
The above information covers the current month and year-to-date through the current month.

For the month, annualized dividend income increased $482, and Yield on Cost (YOC) was up 0.02%. This month's changes were a net of new purchases and dividend changes (no sales during the month). Let's examine each of the these categories:
Purchases: Purchases this month increased my annual dividend income by $329 and decreased my yield on cost by -0.02%. As noted in earlier updates, I generally expect YOC to drop in most months since new investments will yield less than my current YOC, and dividend increases will not be sufficient to offset the decline.
Dividend Changes: The $153 increase in annual dividend income and 0.04% increase in YOC related to the following dividend changes (a=dividend stated in annual terms, q=quarterly, m=monthly):
- ($07) U.S. Preferred Stock Index (PFF) $2.40a>$2.38a
- $24 The Coca-Cola Company (KO)$0.47q>$0.51q
- $57 Genuine Parts Company (GPC) $0.45q>$0.495q
- $16 Kimberly-Clark Corporation (KMB) $0.70q>$0.74q
- $45 Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT) $0.365q>$0.3975q
- $06 Piedmont Natural Gas Co. Inc. (PNY) $0.29q>$0.30q
- $01 Realty Income Corp. (O) $0.1455m>$0.1458m
- $11 Alerian MLP Infrastrctr ETN (MLPI) $1.59a>$1.61a
Sales: There were no sales in April.
That's it for this time. The next monthly progress update will be early May.
