April 2017 Income
While April isn’t historically among the highest paying months, I did continue the trend of year-over-year dividend increases. April 2017 brought in $315.54. This is an increase of 81% compared to last April, which brought in $174.28.
While I had a slight dip in year-over-year dividend income early in 2017, it looks like the trend of increases will continue for the rest of the year.
Options: I collected $40.98 in options premium this month. I also have received $86.99 in premiums for a put option on TGT, which is still open. See my options trading page for more details. I don’t account for this premium until I have closed out of the position.
