Hello everybody. Sorry about not posting a May’s blog post. I got busy and forgot all about it thus this is a combination of May and June. Like I said a lot has happened especially with my trading and my goals going forward. The biggest change is that I have gone back to option trading and so I am using 10% of my portfolio to do that which means my forward dividends has lowered from April’s post. I also will not be adding any funds into my account outside of option trading because of vacation plans I have in August and October.
Last 2 month’s dividends & interest: $191.70
Year to date dividend & interest: $414.95
May and June 2019 vs May and June 2018: -$24.02/-11.13%
Forward annual dividend: $1,179.12
May and June’s Options Earnings: -$707.87
Portfolio’s value: $24,446.96 (+2,042.72/+9.12% since April)
Overall my portfolio has grown since April. I have lost some money in option trading but this should improve as I get back into it and put more time into it. It is a mix of day trading and weekly option trading. Let’s see what July brings
Happy trading and see everybody in retirement!
