We are now running into the second half of the year, my dividend income is chugging along – it may take a dip in subsequent months while i take advantage of some trading opportunities. The august tally is now in, this month managed to haul in $1388.31, almost double in the same period of ’15. The total dividend income for the year is just a hair below the entire 2015 so i am ahead of schedule. I am still targeting $12k or so for wrap up so we’ll see where it ends.
The market continues to grind up, i am still waiting for a parabolic blow-off top and some hysteria before considering the other side. I’ve been trading in and out of a few stocks and options positions to capitalize on sentiment and managed to make some really healthy returns, hopefully i can exit at my target but as with all things stock market related, nothing is guaranteed. I am still jumping in and out of tech as that is my bread and butter..
