That’s a 6% annualized return, on top of the roughly 5% average dividend return the portfolio generates on an on going basis.

Daily Dividend Portfolio Update – May 2014

Daily Dividend Portfolio Update – May 2014

time passes daily dividendsI have to admit, even I didn’t realize it had been almost 2 years since I last updated the Daily Dividend Investor blog! Well, slowly but surely, I’m back and making updates.

I’ve started by finally updating the DDI portfolio holdings page – it’s now up to date as of May 2014 and I’m happy to say that I think I’ve found a little bit cleaner way to display all the holdings. Half the battle with keeping a blog updated is just trying to make things presentable in a half way decent fashion. I hope it’s more readable in it’s current form. I’ve also provided links to download a PDF copy if you’re interested.

I’ve already recorded a few videos that I believe will be helpful for anyone building their own dividend income portfolio. I’ll update the blog once I’ve got them uploaded to YouTube.

I’m encouraged that even with no significant updates to the Daily Dividend Investor blog for the last few years, it continues to get several hundred hits a day! Obviously I’m not the only one looking to build passive income with dividends and I’m glad that you’ve stopped by to take a look.

That’s it for now – just a quick update. Take a look at the new DDI portfolio holdings page and give me your thoughts and feedback – both on the look and feel as well as any questions about the current holdings.
