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...

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,...

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...

February 2017 Income

Better late than never! I’ve been super busy with work, traveling to a prostate cancer conference in San Francisco, and traveling with my girlfriend. While the blogging has slowed a bit, I’ve still been actively trading options and buying stocks. My portfolio has also continued to generate some awesome passive...

Assigned AAPL Call, Purchase of JNJ and HXL

On 1/25/2017 I sold a call on AAPL with a strike of 125 when the stock was trading at 121.95. The expiration date was 2/24/2017. For selling this I received $105.99 after commission. I’m using the past tense above because I had an investing first for me. On the evening...

November 2016 Income

In total, I received $280.57 in dividends for November 2016. Last November I received $391.43, giving me my first rather substantial drop in year-over-year dividends. However, this also factors in the loss of dividend income from Kinder-Morgan, which I have sold, and the decreased dividend of KKR. Also, it doesn’t...

August 2016 Income

In total, I received $278.82 in dividends for August 2016. Due to dividend cuts from KKR and KMI, I actually dropped substantially this month (first time that has happened!). Last August I received $414.84. The loss of KMI cut out about $89 this month and KKR dropped it by another...

Mid September Purchases

On 9/4/2015 I bought-to-close two LEAPS on JCP with a strike price of $5. These were set to expire on Jan 15th, 2016 and were in the money, since JCP stock was over $5. I purchased these LEAPS for 4.58 each on 3/7/2014. My hope was that JCP would not...

August 2015 Income

For those that care about day-to-day values of their portfolio, August was not a great month. Overall, I finished down about $9-10,000 compared to the end of July. However, I’m just staying the course and trying to buy more, if I can. Unfortunately, high expenses in Chicago limit my investments...
