2016 In Review

Well, the year is over. I can’t believe 2016 is gone. Although it was a  great year in many ways, it was also an unpleasant election year and the world lost many notable entertainers and figures. On the bright side, how was 2016 in my quest for dividend income? Overall, it was a pretty good …

Dividend Income Report for December 2016

December is done, and with it 2016. Here in the Pacific Northwest, our “White Christmas” arrived early, as a cold front and snow storm came through here in the middle of the month and several days later there was barely any trace of snow in the city. While the weather can be rather unpredictable, dividend …

My Latest Buys: PNNT, CODI, AWP, EDF

What’s nice about about going nearly two months without buying any stock is that the cash reserve gets to build up from incoming dividend payouts and fresh capital from my matching program. With a pile of cash ready for deployment, I was ready to buy more stocks before the month’s end, so I made one …

Dividend Income Report for November 2016

Goodbye November! Here in the Pacific Northwest, November has been a soggy, dreary month as not a week went by without at least one heavy rain. The few sunny days we got always seemed to land on weekdays and not weekends. Grrrrrr! On the bright side, Thanksgiving with the in-laws was pleasant and we made …

Dividend Income Report for October 2016

Well, October is over and the end of the Halloween season marks the beginning of November and the run up to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Many trees in my area still cling to their leaves (perhaps trees are afraid of being naked?) so autumn is still running its course. But winter is coming… The …

My Latest Buy: AWP

Again, this will be a short post as there’s not too much to say without repeating myself. Yes, more AWP!! October marks three straight months of AWP buys. No, I’m not going nuts loading up on AWP. Well, okay I am loading up on AWP but only enough to bring its weight up to 5-6% …

Dividend Income Report for September 2016

September is over and autumn is most definitely here. Trees are shedding their leaves, the mornings are cold and dark, and the sun sets just a little bit earlier every day. The next several months will just be cold, dreary, gray, and wet. That’s life in the Pacific Northwest for the better part of the …

My Latest Buy: AWP

Not much to really say, so I’ll just keep it really brief this time. I bought more shares of AWP. Again. For September’s buy, I bought 290 shares at $5.543 per share, which adds $14.50 to my monthly income, raising my projected monthly dividend income to $747.33. Thanks to this buy I’m almost at my …

One hour. One dollar.

With August’s stock buy of AWP lifting my projected average monthly dividend income to $732.78, I reached a very anticipated goal: A projected average monthly dividend income of $730 per month. Which means 24 dollars every 24 hours. Or, more simply: $1.00 per hour. Every hour of every day. This is a major milestone that …

Dividend Income Report for August 2016

August is over, summer is pretty much over, and we’re sliding into autumn. I don’t just like summer because of the sunshine and better weather (here in the Pacific Northwest, summer is especially savored), but I also like it because my monthly utility expenses are at their lowest so I have some extra capital to …
