Another dividend raise and this will continue a nice streak of dividend raises. who does not love a dividend raise? This raise is 1.9 percent from the previous amount.
Since i own 57 shares of DUK this will add $3.99 a year. I am still well short of my goal of $270 dollars in dividend raises this year but am ahead of last year by a few dollars at this point. I have added to other positions which will position me nicely for some hopefully good dividend raises next year.
Every raise i gets puts me closer to the goal of having everything paid for by dividends, when this happens i will be financially free
