Monthly Capital Contribution

Below you can view the total dollar contributions made to my Dividend Portfolio since inception along with the 12 month total in red.  Currently my 12 month capital contribution total is coming in at $85059.  Going forward I would like to contribute at least $70,000 a year to my dividend portfolio and as of the last 12 months I seem to be crushing that number since I am currently closer to $80,000.  In the month of April I added $4782 in new funds to the portfolio.

Portfolio Value

Since I tend to take profits more often than the typical buy and hold dividend investor, my Cost Basis and Portfolio Value ratio are not an accurate reflection of my overall profits within the portfolio.
