July 2018

Hello to all. I hope everybody had a great 4th of July and a wonderful month. July was a great month for many reasons. For one the weather has been cool thanks to a lot of raining/cloudy days which allowed me to get out and do things like bike ride and go on day trips with friends. My portfolio also had a great month because it grew by almost $1000.00 and saw a new monthly record of $281.86 in dividends. So I bought only one stock this month and that was HTGC. I bought 75 shares at an average price of $13.10 a share for a total of $987.45 after fees. This purchased increased my forward dividend by $93.00 which brought my yearly dividend to $2062.30. 

I am excited to announce a new monthly record of $281.86. This beats the previous record by $27.34. This was an increase of $29.33 or 11.61% over April and an increase of $88.43 or 45.72% over July of 2017.  It is only a matter of time before I pass $300 a month and than $400 a month. My running dividend payments so far for 2018 come to $1,161.10. Seven months into the year and I have surpass my 2017 dividend payments by almost $40.
