While I shared my dividend growth portfolio earlier this month, this post is my first actual update since starting this site last month.  I am not entirely convinced on the structure/format, but my guess is that it will morph over time.

My Purchases/Sells in May 2016

On May 3, 2016 I purchased 7 shares of T-Rowe Price.  I did not sell any positions (wouldn’t be a good start if I did).

My Dividend Income in May 2016

May is a historically low dividend month for me.  While this is my first post here in year’s past (as chronicled on my old blog):

  • 2012 – $0.00
  • 2013 – $12.80
  • 2014 – $49.05
  • 2015 – $48.56

Well since starting over last month I received only 1 dividend payment

  • CAT – $17.23 which automatically repurchased a whopping .241 shares
