2014 looks quite a bit stronger, pretty obvious I've done some reallocation of assets and generated some substantially different returns from dividends. In fact I brought in $6269.18 in passive income. That's a pretty solid rate of improvement with almost a 4x increase. This happened from a few things. I rolled over my old 401k and bought some dividend stocks, probably did a lot of the lifting right? It actually only accounted for about 40% of what I improved upon. So my other accounts did some pretty heavy lifting of their own.
So how am I looking so far this year? Well as previously noted I've had some dividend reductions from Seadrill, but all is not lost. Halfway through the year I'm at $3024.53 in passive income. This makes me about $850 YTD over my total of $2126.55 at the same time last year. So while my income looks like it has gone down. I'm actually up considerably in 2015 thus far TYD.
