To add some variety to the website, I am going to start providing images from some of the amazing trips I have experienced over the years. The following photograph was taken in Yellowstone National Park in 2005.
Dividend Income Portfolio (Total increase in income = $147.85)
This week ended up being a record breaking week for my dividend income. Never I have added so much Financial Freedom in a single week. At this point I am only $32 from my end of year goal of $2000 in future dividend income. I started this year at around $800 and so far have managed to increase my income of approx $1200 year to date. I am not sure how much I plan to raise my goal by but would imagine that the new total will be around $2300-$2400 by the end of the year. One of the big reasons that I hit my goal early was that Centamin initiated a bi-annual dividend which you can read more about here. Wishing all the best to be readers....
Going forward this coming week I plan to buy additional positions in MCD, MAT, WMT
$150 of McDonald's (MCD) - This will add $4.79 to my annual dividend income.
$50 of Mattel (MAT) - This will add $2.15 to my annual dividend income.
$50 of Target (TGT) - This will add $1.79 to my annual dividend income.
$200 of Visa (V) - This will add $1.60 to my annual dividend income.
$300 of Ensco (ESV) - This will add $18 to my annual dividend income.
$800 of Callinan Royalities (CCNMF) - This will add $36 to my annual dividend income. This is a new position which I don't plan on adding any additional funds to for the time being. This company could be take over target from Altius, Franco, or possibly Royal Gold, but most likely will be Altius.
$750 of Toscana Energy Income (TSCEF) - This will add $83.52 to my annual dividend income.
$1000 of Primero Mining(PPP)
$450 of Junior Miners ETF(GDXJ) - I pretty much sold GDXJ around these levels 2 months ago. The reason I got back in was that the gold stocks have had ample time to consolidate and are holding up very well going into the strong season for gold.
$50 of Newmont Mining(NEM)
$500 of B2Gold
