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...

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...

Latest purchases: BMY, CY, DEO, GILD, KKR, VTR

I love the posts where I discuss new purchases because it is so fun to see the annual dividend keep going higher. The latest purchases include a few new stocks and some old players. All pay dividends, though not all have the dividend growth history of a Johnson & Johnson...

January 2017 Income

Wow! January 2017 is done already. Time is just flying! This January I received $156.89, compared with $144.28 in January 2016. This is an increase of only 8.7%. It doesn’t seem like much but it is still much faster than inflation. January has typically been my lowest paying month, and...

2017 Goals

Now that the recap of my 2016 goals is complete, I can get around to discussing goals for 2017. Goals for 2017: 1) Retirement Accounts. As always it is best to invest fully and as early as possible into tax advantaged accounts. This goal is to max out my Roth...
