Good morning, afternoon, evening fellow reader,

The portfolio has grown another $320 from contributions and a couple dollars from the markets.

The reason for the big increase is I’m going to get the account to where I should be if I had invested $10 literally every day of the year starting from January 1st, which currently at the time of this writing would put my target at $1,450

And the dividends are starting to roll in!

I received the following this week:

Eaton Vance Limited Duration Income Fund of Beneficial Interest (EVV) – $0.01

Buckeye Partners L.P. (BPL) – $0.06
Calamos Strategic Total Return Fund (CSQ) – $0.01
Energy Transfer Equity L.P. representing Limited Partnership interests (ETE) – $0.03

TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation (AMTD) – $0.01

Gabelli Dividend & Income Trust of Beneficial Interest (GDV) – $0.01


Total Dividends for the week: $0.13

Current highest share count is Prospect Capital (PSEC) with 0.94623 shares
Current highest paying dividend is Buckeye Partners (BPL) paying $0.22
Biggest gain $ wise is Tiffany & Co (TIF) with $1.00
Biggest gain % wise is Tiffany & Co (TIF) with 17.805%

Current lowest share count is General Dynamics (GD) with 0.03109 shares
Current lowest paying dividend is Mosaic Company (MOS) paying $0.005
Biggest loss $ wise is The Gap (GAP) with -$0.46
Biggest loss % wise is The Gap (GAP) with -6.760%

Now anticipated to make over $2 a month in dividend income

Current expected total dividend income throughout this year $15.03

Broken down to an hourly rate I’ve given my family a raise of $0.03 so far (using 160 work hours/4 weeks)

Until next time
