Mid September Purchases

On 9/4/2015 I bought-to-close two LEAPS on JCP with a strike price of $5. These were set to expire on Jan 15th, 2016 and were in the money, since JCP stock was over $5. I purchased these LEAPS for 4.58 each on 3/7/2014. My hope was that JCP would not...

August 2015 Income

For those that care about day-to-day values of their portfolio, August was not a great month. Overall, I finished down about $9-10,000 compared to the end of July. However, I’m just staying the course and trying to buy more, if I can. Unfortunately, high expenses in Chicago limit my investments...

February 2015 Income

February has traditionally been not that big of a dividend payout month. However, mostly thanks to AAPL, February isn’t too shabby anymore. Also, compared to last February, I also own two additional stocks which pay in the February quarter, CAT and O. In total, I received $279.47 in dividends for...

November 2014 Income

While I only have three stocks that pay their dividends in November, all three pay well and make up a large portion of my portfolio. Last November I made $82.90. This November I received a total of $236.24, a increase of 185%. This amount brings the year total up to...
