September 2014 Dividend , Options and Interest monthly report

September has been a rocky road. I have bet big on Canadian REITS and so far they are down 4.5% or about $6,800 buck OUCHY. I have stepped up my options trading and now will keep track of the premiums I am getting per month. My strategy has been aggressive APPL put and call options. I am not scared to get assigned as I have plenty of room on my margin account to make such plays. Also since I am using margin now I will also track my interest charges along with my dividends.

Here is my Dividends recieved for September

  1. Wow $2,088.65 in dividend income. Boy you're grinding the dividend income higher and higher. Looks like you've gotten a lot of dividend stocks which means further diversification. Great stuff!

    1. Pretty heavy on the reits right now but we will see how things pan out

  2. AG,

    Those are amazing results. It looks like all that capital you invested a few months back really came through for you in September. Keep up the inspiring work!


  3. Do you need to still be so heavy on the REITs? Your portfolio is already generating a nice growing and stable income why chase high yield as much as you are these days? Still, an awesome month with great passive income earned on the dividend side. Interesting to see how the AAPL options play out going forward. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Yes pretty heavy on the reits. Dont think I will be buying anymore till I pay off my margin.

  5. Wow, over 2k in a month... Impressive! I look forward to seeing how your REIT plays pan out and the options. The numbers are awesome so far!

    1. Yah hopefully the reits will rebound. Will takes some time i reckon!

  6. Solid set of income as a result of the dividends and options trades. Are you planning on just collecting the cash and utilizing that to pay down the margin?

  7. Damn, I got some work cut out for me!!!

    Grind on indeed :)

    Killer work man,

    1. Your month lookin good as well. You must be an avid moneysense reader like me!! Love Jonathan Chevreau!

  8. AG,
    I am sure your reits will rebound in the long term but how long do you plan on holding for? The dividends that you are getting will eventually catch up to your capital loss. 2k in dividends is crazy and I could live off of that. lol

    1. Not sure on the length of the reit hold but will ride the storm for at least a year me thinkin

  9. A-G,

    Those REITs are really pulling the cart for you, my friend. I hope that experiment continues to work out for you. :)

    In the meanwhile, huge numbers. I'm taking a more conservative approach, but I'm excited for the day I eventually hit income like this. Awesome numbers!

    Best regards.

    1. Yes they pay off big but I till i get this margin down its a bit of smoke and mirrors lol

  10. Holy crap! Those REIT dividends/distributions are starting to roll in...and damn, that looks like some pretty sweet income. Sweet delicious dividend income :)

    Keep it up! Inspirational as always.


    1. Yeah they are getting good. I wanted some more immediate returns in case I need to pull some out and budget my expenses in the future. Part of it is visualization with me where I can see how much is coming in and adjust spending accordingly. Ultimate goal is still stack higher and higher!

  11. Those monthly payers are really adding some cash to your totals. I probably won't hit 2k/month in dividends until sometime late next year. Solid month, keep up the good work!

    1. Yah happy its at 2k but I gotta pay down this margin to hit the next gear!

  12. Awesome! Gotta love being able to count on somewhere around $1300 in monthly payers every month! Even if some of that comes from margin and you pay interest on it. You're starting to get more of an avalanche than a snowball!

  13. Asset is this true over 2k in a month wow thatz really awesome keep it up
