### Dividend Income Growth

Today I want to talk samples of what dividend growth can do for you. The problem with doing straight calculations is that life is messier than such calculations, but in another post I will talk about my actual experience.

What I will illustrate is 6 different scenarios, 3 with higher dividends and 3 with lower dividends and all with different dividend growth rates. I am basing these scenarios on some actual performance of stocks I own. The scenarios are as shown below with the names of stocks which matched in the past these sorts of original dividends and dividend growth rates.

In all these scenarios, you have invested \$10,000 at \$10 a share for a 1,000 shares of each stock. In the first table I am showing what dividends you would receive in the first year of holding these stocks. I have highlighted the stocks with the highest and lowest initial yearly dividend payment.
