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 from the Baxter spin-off. They just announced a dividend of $0.07/share/quarter, which will add $8.68 in annual dividends. The combination of Baxter and Baxalta dividends still quite doesn’t equal what Baxter was paying before the spin-off, but I’m going to keep both and am hopeful that they’ll increase the dividends back up soon. Passive Income Pursuit has a good article on the BAX and BXLT dividends.
Cumulative dividends for the year are $2,217.49, which is almost equal to all of the dividends received last year. I will certainly bypass last year’s annual dividend by the early part of August.
Options: No current put options in play. I do have a covered call sold on AAPL, which I will talk about in an upcoming blog post.
