2014 is over so it is time to take a look at my first (partial) year of dividend investing. Before I jump into my 2014 totals, I’d like to point out my November and December returns. In November, I received $15.74 in dividends. November didn’t set any personal bests but December did. In December, I received $26.00 in dividends which surpassed my previous best month of $17.85 in October.
Here is a table of my December dividends:

Next up, let’s take a look at my overall 2014 dividends by month.
2014 MONTHLY DIVIDENDS
In 2014 I came close to reaching $100 for the year. I really didn’t start dividend investing until around May in 2014 so it took a while for the dividends to start coming in. I plan on seeing an increase this year and look forward to 2015. If my projections are right, I should pass $200 in annual dividends in 2015 even if I don’t invest another penny. However, I do plan on investing more so $200 should be easy to beat. Once I make some more purchases, I hope to see a few months of over $30 in dividends.
For 2015, I’m already gearing up to purchase more stock for my Roth IRA using OptionsHouse. I’m currently leaning towards picking up RDS.B, more CVX, and possibly GIS this month. I have more research to do however but should hopefully be making some buys in a week or so.
I hope you all have a successful 2015 and thanks for stopping by.
