Is the roller coaster ride over or is it just getting
started? I think it’s just getting started. Mr. Market went off his meds in
January. It was a pretty busy month for the wizards as well. Let’s take a look
at where things wound up once the dust settled:
As always, the whole portfolio is published back at the mothership.
The big jump in cash and drop in equities is a result of the
investment trust liquidating last week. I’m not counting that cash as an “income
asset”, although I do count other forms of cash as such. I’ve never counted the
cash in the beneficiary IRA with the “income assets” and I’ve made enough
clerical changes to how I track this stuff already. It’s going to change around
a lot again when I get that account transferred to Interactive Brokers and
start getting more active with options.
2 new positions added and 1 position increased (twice). Projected
annual income increased by $151.44 based on current dividends.
01/11/16 – GILD: 18 shares purchased at $96.00/share. Increased
position (although these shares are in the taxable account…I’m trying to pull
a switcheroo.) Increased (for now) projected annual income by $30.96 based
on current $1.72/share annual dividend.
01/13/16 – DSW:
66 shares purchased at $22.80/share. New position initiated. Increased projected
annual income by $52.80 based on current $0.80/share dividend.
01/20/16 – AAPL:
16 shares purchased at $94.50/share. New position initiated. Increased
projected annual income by $33.28 based on current $2.08/share dividend.
01/29/16 – GILD: 20 shares purchased at $82.50/share.
Increased position (also in taxable account…the price just got too good for
me not to buy more.) Increased projected annual income by $34.40 based on
current $1.72/share annual dividend.
Pay Days and Raises
Income Tracker is also published back at the mothership.
Total of $666.38 of passive income received. Ten “pay days”
15 individual payments received.
WFM dividend payment is a $0.005/share increase or 3.8%.
This increase adds $1.04 in annual income.
WHG dividend payment is a $0.07/share increase or 14%. This
increase adds $8.48 in annual income.
Two of the “pay days” were selling covered calls on my
stupid gold mining stocks. The
ABX call is pretty heavily in the money. I’m a little worried it could get
assigned, but it hasn’t yet. I don’t really care if it does or not, although I
do wish I had waited
a day and sold the $10 strike. Oh well.
For whatever reason the WHIAX December distribution was paid
on 01/04, so technically this income should have gone into December I guess? Whatever.
Stupid mutual funds.
