This will start my monthly dividend tracking post on this blog. I hope to grow my dividends over time and retire on them. How much do I need? Well that is for another post.
My total dividends for May is $1,152.13 from all accounts shared between my wife and I. The chart below shows my monthly dividend income for 2012. The months after May are estimated.
The insignificant green bit at the top of the blue bars is interest income. Since interest rates are so low these days, I don't hold much in interest bearing accounts.
May dividend holdings: ALA, AVF, IPL.UN, AX.UN, BA, BCE, BNS, LW, PZA.UN, STB, SU, KEG.UN, VSN
