March 2019 Income

March 2019 brought in $1497.15. This was down very slightly from last March, which brought in $1560.64. When you take out the contribution of $116.66 from NAVI (which I sold) that was part of last March, I didn’t do too bad.

I’m doing this post from my iPad so I’ll add the chart images a bit later. I’m returning from a really good medical conference.

Options: See my Options trading page for open trades. I have no premium income to report since I did not close any trades this month.

    Ciao Scott,
    Looking at the latest option plays… Looks like you are VERY BEARISH on “O” (or reits in general), am I correct?

      Hi Stal,

      I was bearish on O in the short term but still own them for the longterm in my Roth. That was a bad put option on my part and I still have yet to update that page to show that I closed that position.


  2. TwoInvesting –

    Great month, regardless of your old position that you sold. Who is paying you now are high quality companies and next year, you’ll be well over 10% higher than you are for March 2019.

    Still a very solid month with a lot of great companies paying you. Hitting 4 digits in a passive manner is serious cash. Keep up the solid work and look forward to next month’s year over year increase!

  5. You’re so close to cracking that $1 per hour mark for year round. You’ll reach that in no time. How awesome.

      Buy, Hold Long,

      I actually hit $1 per hour mark near the end of last year but had to sell some AT&T stock to pay for expenses. It dropped just below but will soon climb above it again. While I don’t like selling stock to pay for things, I guess that is what happens when you typically draw your checking account down to near zero each month. Moving forward my wife is doing the budgeting and we will have a little bit more of a cushion.

  7. Solid dividend income. Thanks for posting and I hope next month you can also post positive option income!

      Thanks Torsten! I’m hoping to get back into posting about options again too. I had taken a breather, mostly because I didn’t have time to monitor them as closely as I would like.

    That is some amazing dividend haul Scott. Almost $1500 is just insane.
