Projected dividends for 2022
Updated: Aug 2, 2022
I finally updated my dividend projections for the year and was pleased to discover we are likely to blow pass my initial projections of about $2,500 in December.
The main reason for this is a relatively significant dividend increase from my employer, and also a large number of shares that will be vesting this year.
The other components of our dividend portfolio are broad-based ETFs, dividend and REIT-focused ETFs and individual stocks.
The takeaway here shouldn't necessarily be the numbers, but the trajectory. It doesn't matter whether you're receiving $2, $20 or $200 when you first start - the important thing is to start!
The feeling of seeing money from dividends hit your account is great, and you just might be surprised how it grows over 5 - 10 years.
