February’s Dividends

Well, this is what we are here for, dividends. I have received my first round of dividend payments and even though they are small just to be able to see my stock portfolio working for me is an awesome feeling knowing that for the next seventeen years I will continue to add to it and watch it grow.

Stock Dividend Payout
MAIN $2.16
STAG $1.51
HCP $6.90
BRG $0.97
Total $11.54

Not bad for only starting this adventure a month ago. These should only increase quickly each month especially with many of my stocks being monthly dividend payers which should exponentiate the compounding factor.
