September 2017 Income

September has always been one of the higher paying months, and this month was no exception. In fact, I set an all time record for me… $1226.75. This is a 66.7% increase from last September. My rent for the month was basically all paid by dividends! This was the second month ever to break $1000. At the moment, I’m on track to have four months in 2018 break $1000.

I’m also up to $5351.89 for the year. This is $300 more than I received all of last year.

Cumulative lifetime dividends received since start of this blog in 2011 is $17,783.81.

Options: I collected $127.98 in options premium this month. See my options trading page for more details.

  3. Great work, Scott! Wow, over $1,200, with at least 5 paying you $100+. Your monthly income is truly picking up some steam. It’s awesome that you’ve already eclipsed last year’s dividend total. Now you’ve got 3 months to push the bar higher for 2018. Happy to see a fellow HSY owner, too… don’t see too many.
