Buy: ABBV
Today I added a new position: ABBV. They didn't show up on my screener because some spin-off activity made it look like their div history is much shorter than it actually is (44 years). When I read about them I started looking closer and liked what I saw: g...

Portfolio Report December 2016
Ending a mixed year for my portfolio.  I sold some high-yield, but
dividend cutting and poor performing stocks. I picked up my first
monthly div payer, O. Unique for me this year also was that I put no
fresh capital in. I only re-invested div earnings, a...

Don't Pre-pay Your Mortgage
This past week the old discussion of the pro's and con's of paying of your mortgage early flared up again. While good points were made on both sides of the argument, I'm firmly of the opinion that it doesn't make sense to pay off your mortgage early while y...

Sell: ARLP
In the aftermath of the election the market went all sorts of crazy. I
sold my ARLP position when it jumped up several points. It was on my
sell list for a while, given their Div Cuts, and uncertain future. The
stock has been recovering, and while it may...

Portfolio Report November 2016
In November I finally sold ARLP and used the proceeds and dividend earnings toward buying O. This checks a long-standing goal of getting out of ARLP. O is my first monthly dividend payer, so my month-to-month and month-year-ago comparisons will be off for t...

HCP Spins Off QCP, cuts dividend
HCP spun off QCP on October 31. As a result, and as expected, HCP
cut their dividend by 35%. This will have a real impact on my portfolio,
as HCP is my largest position. Of course, with QCP being a brand new
company, little is known about how they will h...

Portfolio Report October 2016
Several changes in October. HCP cut dividend after it spun off QCP. More on that later. Also, I put $2500 in a LendingClub account to experiment with a new mostly passive income stream. No other transactions for me. Dividend Earned in October: $176.66 Divid...

LendingClub Experiment
This year has been great for stocks, including dividend stocks. I
have not put any fresh capital into my stock portfolio, and only
re-invested proceeds just once . I've been on the sidelines most of the
time, waiting for two conditions: sufficient divide...

Dividend Report September 2016
September saw the first payment of TRTN, which I'm happy about. The
stock is still not doing well, but as long as they keep paying the
dividend, I'll hold on. Income: $ 482.65 Trailing 12 months: $ 5,516.83 Forward 12 months: $ 5,662.10 In October I expec...

Dividend Report August 2016
This month is lower than the May earnings. In May we had TAL paying
out, and the newly merged company TRTN pays out in September, so we
should see the boost there. We're still up, from August last year. RY
pays out in Canadian dollars, so there's always ...
