Another month, another bunch of dividends. Can’t complain. My dividend for this month came in at a healthy $1015.42 ( slight adjustment as i had missed off one payment from the prior announcement ). This was less than the $1145.64 that i made during February 2014 which would at first glance, appear to be disappointing. Why less? Well, as mentioned on prior posts, i’ve rejigged my portfolio a lot since last year, i’m also missing the ARCP dividend which contributed to some of the missing income. That said, my net worth has been growing great so i’m not too concerned. I’m also expecting 2H ’15 to be bigger. My focus has been to take advantage of opportunities that came up during the recent Oil crash – they paid off great for capital gains. The profits from these trades will ultimately roll back into dividend income. I’m still working on a few risky plays which may or may not play out. If they do, my dividend income will get a serious boost, if not, well things will take a bit of a hit for a year or two, so we’ll have to see how this goes. I’ll cover markets and various stocks in the next post.
Hope you are having a great weekend.
