    The growth of your dividend on a YoY basis is just enormous! Keep going with the snowball.

    It is nice to see that you mention also your option income. I will be doing this as well going forward. I like the “trading feel” I get from writing options.

      Thanks, Amber Tree. I’m still reinvesting the dividends received back into the company that paid it and it is fun to see the annual dividend slowly creep up just by the small addition of the reinvested dividends. I can’t wait until the snowball gets bigger!

      At some point, probably when I’m consistently receiving greater than $1000 a month in dividends, I’ll stop reinvesting the dividends automatically and instead combine that with fresh capital in order to be a little more selective in buying companies that are better valued.

      Since I’ve gotten a better options commission pricing from Schwab, I can definitely see selling covered calls and cash-secured puts as a big supplement to dividend investing.

      Thanks again for visiting!

  3. Kudos on a fantastic month. $600 + a month is life changing. More that this, it proves that dedication to DGI investing works. Imagine how much your monthly take will be in 5-10 years. Keep up the good work.
