Sorry it’s been a while since I have posted, between all sorts of seasonal events with friends and family, I’ve been pretty heads down working on the project I am almost ready to formally announce.  In the meantime, here is my year end 2016 wrap up that I wrote on Seeking Alpha (link).

Some of the excerpts:

2016: $3901 in dividends received

December: $756 in dividends and a personal monthly record

2017: Targeting $5,000 in dividends received and $5,800 in forward looking income.  Here’s the math behind it.

Starting Income $5,000
5% Organic Dividend Growth $250
Maxing 401k New Money $540
End of 2017 Income $5,790

I also made a few trades during the month, I went on a mini-Santa spree and bought some shares on December 22nd.  Here’s a summary of those transactions.

Ticker Date Shares Price Buy/Sell
ABT 12/6/2016 75 38.42 Buy
MDT 12/22/2016 15 71.5 Buy

Sorry to be brief but more will become clear in due time.
