My goals were defined in this December 1, 2007 Investing Goals post and last updated in my 2014 Investing Goals post. Below is an updated version of the table found in the original post.
|Div. Changes YTD||364||0.07%|
The above information covers the current month and year-to-date through the current month.

For the month, annualized dividend income increased $476, 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 $240 and decreased yield on cost -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 normally be sufficient to offset the decline.
Dividend Changes: The $236 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):
- $20 Kimberly-Clark Corporation (KMB) $0.81q>$0.84q
- $52 Genuine Parts Company (GPC) $0.5375q>$0.575q
- $6 Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT) $0.47q>$0.48q
- $47 The Coca-Cola Company (KO) $0.28q>$0.305q
- $2 Realty Income Corporation (O) $0.18216m>$0.18247m
- $22 Occidental Petroleum Corporation (OXY) $0.64q>$0.72q
- $16 Piedmont Natural Gas Co. Inc. (PNY) $0.31q>$0.32q
- $50 Cincinnati Financial Corp. (CINF) $0.42q>$0.44q
- $21 Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO) $0.17q>$0.19q
Sales: There were no sales in the month of April.
That's it for this time. The next monthly progress update will be early May.
