2016 Year in review and looking forward to 2017

Happy New Year!

2016 was very good. Here are some numbers:

Dividends for 2016 were $3796.20. That number is great and compared to 2015, this is huge.



Total Investments for 2016 were around $47000. I was fortunate enough to have invested a good amount last year, but probably not as much this year.

2017

I never set any hard goals. Would be nice to get $4000-$4500 in annual dividends and at-least $20000 in stock investments. Pretty sure I won't be investing that much this year. Wish you all an awesome 2017!
