November 2017 Income

Here’s my November 2017 dividend income report. Better late then never. I have actually been away from the computer (and work) the last 12 days traveling with my girlfriend. As such I’ve been slow to update my blog, respond to comments, or comment on the blogs of others. I hope...

October 2017 Income

October brought in $491.47 in dividends. This is a massive increase of nearly 175% increase over the $179 that I earned in dividends last October. This increase is largely due to significant investments into GE over the past year. I will continue to accumulate GE at these depressed levels. The...

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...

August 2017 Income

These months are going fast! August, while not usually one of the higher paying months, turned out pretty good this year thanks to excellent dividend payouts from Apple and AT&T. In total I received $448. This is a 60.6% increase from last August. So far I’ve received $4,125.14 in 2017,...

Latest purchases — DIS, DBD, GE, LB, TGT

It’s been awhile since I provided an update on my latest dividend stock purchases. The market over the last month or so has continued to provide good entry points into several good companies. Here are my latest purchases from mid-July through the end of August: On 7/11/2017, I opened a...

6-Month Check-Up

Wow! It already more than half way through the 2017 year. Things have been going great. I started my new official job a little over one year ago. It is going great! I also met a great girl in the cities. Life is going well but is going by so...

May 2017 Income

May 2017 continued the trend of year-over-year dividend increases for me. Secondary largely to added investments, my year-over-year dividend income increased by 52.7% to $632.02. My option income was also up a lot (from $0 last May to $142.98 this May). The dividend increase is mostly due to a huge...

April 2017 Income

While April isn’t historically among the highest paying months, I did continue the trend of year-over-year dividend increases. April 2017 brought in $315.54. This is an increase of 81% compared to last April, which brought in $174.28. While I had a slight dip in year-over-year dividend income early in 2017,...

Latest Buy — Target

On 4/6/2017, I purchased an additional 75 shares of TGT in my standard brokerage account. I own about 75 shares in my Roth IRA so this was a new purchase in my taxable account. I eventually hope to get this amount to over 100 shares so I can sell call...

March 2017 Income

I set a new monthly record this month! My first greater than $1000 dividend month. $1042.60! I didn’t think I was going to do it. Turns out that I did not see that BBL had significantly increased its dividend (from 0.28 to 0.8 per half-year). I wonder if this is...
