June 2014 Dividends/ Option Income
June has been a huge dividend month for me. Last June I made $143.66; this year I brought in $295.02, a 105.4% increase. This amount brings the year total up to $1011.13. Last year I made $1132.01 in total and I am already almost at that 6-months in. I also already beat last year’s annual dividend goal of $1000.
Options have not been so nice to me thus far. I currently have a few options trades running that I hope will be profitable. The few that either expired in June or I had to close at a loss, IWM and NFLX, resulted in a loss of $410. Not great, but I hope to turn that figure around in the second half of the year. I’ve already had good success with my first cash-secured put, LULU.
