The biggest news this month for my Portfolio was the PM dividend increase taking effect. My payout went from the previous $0.86 per quarter up to $0.94 for a whopping extra $2 in dividends. It may not sound like much, but I’ll take it!
Of the $65 income $44 was earned in my taxable brokerage account, while the other $21 is tax-free in my ROTH IRA. I’m slowly getting closer to my initial goal of averaging $100 a month. Probably another $5000 worth of investments will push me pat that target.
