Update to Dividend Tracker Spreadsheet

I recently read about a cool thing that Passive Income Pursuit was tracking on his portfolio. It is keeping track of the payback period for his dividend stocks. He talks about it on his blog here. Essentially, it just calculates the percentage of invested capital that has been returned as dividends. The amount of invested capital does not, obviously, take into account the dividends, which for tax purposes are included in the cost basis. This data doesn’t really amount to anything practical, but it will be kind of cool when the dividends are greater than or equal to the amount initially invested. In the future I might update the spreadsheet to calculate the estimated timeframe to “break even.”
