April 2019 Income

This April I received $333.00, compared with $474.25 in April 2018. The decrease comes from selling GE and not receiving its dividend (GE drastically cut its dividend after I sold). BAC also paid in March this year rather than April, like last year. Options: No new trades. See my options...

March/April Stock Purchases & Other Investments

March & April 2018 Income

Better late than never. This seems to be the theme lately. I’ve been way too busy with work and wedding planning to keep this up-to-date. I’m going to do my best, but things will settle down after the wedding in September. The good news is that the investments continue to...

February 2018 Income

Better late than never! There’s been a lot of developments in my life that have taken me away from being able to update the blog as regularly. Foremost, I got engaged a couple of weeks ago. I’m very excited to begin this next part of my life with a wonderful...
