Project $3 Million ... Monthly Update

The portfolio value target for 2012, in order to stay on track for Project $3 Million, is $74,355.59. The portfolio value at the end of January is $70,242.17.

Dividends paid in the month of January were:

ADP - $14.70
PEP - $16.48
KMB - $17.67
MO - $40.12
PM - 24.15
O - $11.08
SYY - $18.48
===============
Total - $142.68

Dividend History:

2009 - $21.79 ..... 2010 - $80.25 ..... 2011 - $102.18

Jan. 12 dividends increased 27.3% over Jan 11, a very nice increase indeed.

Portfolio Moves in January:

All dividends were reinvested back into the same company that paid them. Both O and UHT were sold in the taxable account, proceeds transferred to the ROTH IRA, and O was repurchased, UHT was replaced with HCN. In the taxable account, 12 shares of LMT were purchased to an existing position.

Looking forward, I expect February to be the highest dividend month to date.
