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...

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...

September 2016 Income

September has historically been one of the higher payout months. Total dividend income for September 2016 was $735.76, an increase of 15.7% over last September. Total dividend income for September 2015 was $635.77 and in September 2014 I received $312.11. I like this trend! Options: None currently open. Symbol Dividend...

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...

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...

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...

June 2015 Income

Sorry for the late June update. It seemed that not too long ago July had just started! I just moved to Chicago for work and have been busy getting settled here. I’ll post an update about that soon. Also, a new update is coming about another investment idea that I’ve...

January 2015 Income

Thanks to a special dividend from Ventas of $4.79 that I was not expecting, I was able to just break $100. January is my lowest dividend collecting month as BAX, CSCO, GE, and O only provide the meaningful contributions. DIS also pays this month but only contributed $2.62 since it...
