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
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.
