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...

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...

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...

Roth IRA Conversions & Purchase of BAC

I usually try to max out my Roth IRA as early as possible each year in order to maximize the effects of compounding. Due to the high cost of living in Chicago this year, I was unable to contribute $5,500 until recently. However, rather than contribute directly into a Roth,...
