Dividend income - June 2015

June was a great month for me!

Dividend income

JNJ $12.00
TGT $14.56
AFL $7.41
MCD $9.35
CVX $10.70

Total June: $54.02 (pre 15% tax)

In order to achieve the annual $300 of net dividends, I should have received $150 by now.
The total net dividends of 2015 are currently at $141.01, so I'm a little bit behind, but I think it will work out just fine!

Being behind schedule gives me motivation to research new investment opportunities!

Dividend raise

Exactly 1 year ago, TGT was in big problems. The stock has had a huge downfall due to several problems. This gave me a very appealing entry point, as marked at the graph below.

After that, things have gone very well for TGT. The stock value has risen from $58 to over $80 now. This makes TGT by far my best performing stock. Current price is +38%. Of course I'm keeping this winner!

The 7.69% dividend increase they announced recently, is just another example why this is a great stock to have.

TGT raised their annual dividend from $2.08 to $2.24.

Excited about next month

Getting into July next month will be very exciting for me.
Last year in July, my first dividends ever, were deposited into my account.
This means I'm able to start comparing dividend results to last year, which is something I have been looking forward to.

Thanks for reading!
