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,...

Purchase of more GE and GILD Options

While I have not been posting as regularly as I would like, I still have been staying active with buying stocks and selling options. Here’s the latest: I get paid at the end of each month so tend to do most of my stock buying early in the month. The...

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...

October 2016 Income

October hasn’t been one of my high payout months, yet it still generated $178.99. This is nearly $179 that I didn’t have to work for this month. It is even up 9.3% from last year! And, this amount does not include the Diageo dividend, which I must have just missed...

January 2016 Income

2016 was a rough start for stocks! Seems like nearly all of my stocks are lower. For dividend investors, though, the situation is not too bad. Lower stock prices just means that we can buy more shares and that our dividend reinvestments have more oomph. This January I received $144.28,...

October 2015 Income

October hasn’t been one of my high payout months, but it still came in respectably at $163.81. This is up 63% from last year but is actually down slightly from its most recent quarter in July. This can be attributed to the fact that the spinoff combination of Baxter and...

New Options Strategy

There’s been two new options strategies that I’ve been toying with. Both involve variants on buying stock and selling covered calls. For the beginning options trader, each options contract consists of 100 shares. As an example, I current have a little over 400 shares of GE in my account. On...

July 2015 Income

Even July, which historically hasn’t been that big of a dividend payout month, contributed $172.88 this year. This is a 73% increase from last July. The big reason is that I own quite a bit more of GE than I did last July. I also received 31 shares of Baxalta...

Purchase of GE with money from MCD

If you’ve been following my latest posts, I did go ahead and sell MCD. As a dividend growth investor, stagnant stocks aren’t usually what would cause me to sell. In fact, I might even buy more or at least hold, allowing the reinvested dividends to be even more effective. It...
