Hello all, I hope everybody had a great June. For me it had its positives and negatives. I have been buying and holding on to CJREF shares for a few quarters in hopes that the company would turn things around but unfortunately during its last earnings report management announced that they will be cutting dividends and going from a monthly payment to a quarterly. This was my cue to sell my shares of CJREF. I sold 150 shares for $600.56 after fees. I lost $589.86 after deducting dividends that I have received from CJREF. This reduced my forward dividend by $127.80. I used these funds and other free funds to buy 80 shares of AGNC for $1,552.70 after fees. This increased my forward dividend by $172.80 which gave me a net gain of $45.00 which brings my yearly dividend to $1,968.66. This months dividends came to $88.27. This was a 25.12% increase from March 2018 and a 99.8% increase from June 2017. This brings my dividend payouts so far for the year to $879.24.
Be on the lookout for a mid-year review and what I plan on doing for the 2nd half of 2018
