July 2014 Dividends/ Option Income
Last July I only made $17.51, as CSCO was the only stock that I paid. This year I received a total $99.93, an approximately 470% increase. (CSCO alone accounted for $20.16 of that amount.) This amount brings the year total up to $1111.06. Last year I made $1132.01 in total and I am already almost at that 6-months in.
Options: I had two options trades that either expired or were closed in July. The put option on LULU netted a profit of $96.78. The DIA options trade resulted in a loss of $52.78. Altogether, I had net gain of $44 for options in July.
