 In Summary-

Markets still very volatile especially Canadian Markets. The Canadian TSX was down sharply with Oil stocks taking big hits and also the banking sector taking a grubbing as well. My portfolio has mirrored the drop with it unfortunately. I am not worried though as this is what the markets do even though I am down $33,547.

I have been quite busy with some real estate deals lately and making a major play which is in the works. Doing so will force me to reanalyze my Reit positions and I will be more than likely getting rid of my margin Reit plays in the new year. My Margin Reit play was a big loser for me so far but whatever, no worries, thats business! Got to keep moving forward and making things happen. I am not 100% sure of my real estate plans just yet. Not sure if and when I will be moving but I have some options opening up for me in the near future

In the brewery startup news there has been a few set backs but nothing major. Still looking to start pouring beer in the spring with fingers crossed. With new businesses set backs are expected and I am not worried yet. Could be a couple years before I start seeing some capital back.

My father has been in and out of the hospital quite a bit with a bad heart and a quintuple bypass is needed. Its been stressing me out a bit and I haven't been as active as I would like with blogging lately. I am not worried about the dip in my net worth as their are more important things afoot lately.

Till the next update Good Day and Grind On!

November 2014 Dividend , Options , Adsense and Interest monthly report

Things are looking pretty steady lately holding the markets rebound quite well. Have had good gains in Apple stock but countered with my energy stocks doing poorly. Oil still remains at attractive levels and I will be capitalizing on the opportunity.  Option activity is down as Apple stock premiums have slowed since stock has been shooting straight up. I will pick and choose my spots to buy puts.

I have added a new category for my monthly report Adsense. I will be adding how much money my free hosting blog is generating via ad revenue. I dont expect it to ever be that much but its a fun stat.

 Overall minus margin interest included I am up $2,308.41 via dividends, options and adsense for November. Not too shabby but pretty steady especially with my monthly payers.

Till next month Good Day and Grind On!
