One day we want to be able to live purely off the income from our investments. The earlier this happens in our lives, the better.
How do we know if we’re getting any closer? By tracking it of course.
Our dividend updates and graphs run from 1st July to 30th June each year, lining up with the Australian tax year.
In May 2016 we were paid the following in cash and franking credits:
- Japara Healthcare (ASX:JHC) $43.82 Cash and $18.78 Franking Credits. Total $62.60.
Below is the graph showing our yearly dividend income so far:
With 11 months gone, that’s an average of $43.71 a month. The average has increased from $41 since our last dividend update for April.
With one month to go, we need $19.19 to hit our $500 tax year goal. It’s going to be a tight one, you’ll have to check in next month to see if we do it.
How was your May for dividends?
Thanks for reading this article about our investing journey Down Under.
Onwards and upwards!
