This is a recap of dividends received and new stocks purchased for December.
For purchases, I bought $300 of NYMT which has a crazy dividend yield of 17%. It's a bit risky but I'm comfortable with that. I also added $500 into our mutual funds.
One of my goals for 2016 is to earn $2000 in dividends in our taxable investments so I will be keeping track of it. I like dividend stocks but I'm also willing to buy non-dividend stocks. I knew that X (US Steel) didn't have the best dividends when I bought it but I'm hoping that the stock price increases. I will really need to add to my account to get to the $2000 mark but I like a good challenge.
