My journey of becoming financial independence by 35 years old
It’s time to report dividend income again, it’s been a crazy selling month for me, I’m happy that at least I was selling in he up market. I’ll pay for it later when I do my taxes next year.
To my surprise, April is still breaking record of quarter-over-quarter, I guess, the full effect of dividend decline of raiding $58k from the portfolio and saving won’t be in full effect until May. Without any further delay, here goes:
04/29/16 Interest BANK DEPOSIT SWEEP $0.08
04/29/16 Dividend JPM – JPMORGAN CHASE & CO $8.80
04/15/16 Dividend BXMT – BLACKSTONE MORTGAGE TRUST INC $12.40
04/15/16 Dividend FCPT – FOUR CORNERS PROPERTY TR INC $0.97
04/15/16 Dividend STWD – STARWOOD PROPERTY TR INC $9.60
04/15/16 Dividend WPC – W P CAREY INC $9.74
04/13/16 Dividend FOXA – TWENTY-FIRST CENTY CL A $4.50
04/12/16 Dividend DEO – DIAGEO PLC SPONSORED ADR NEW $19.05
04/04/16 Dividend WMT – WAL-MART STORES INC $75.00
04/01/16 Dividend BAX – BAXTER INTERNATIONAL INC 1.16
I’ve been so busy lately still doing my fulltime job, managing turn over, volunteer 10 hours a week, still cooking every meals. Blogging is is my least priority at the moment, but I just want to drop a line. I know some bloggers are keeping track of dividend among the blogger sphere so I do want to put my stats out there to continue to motivate my own self and hopefully to inspire a soul or two.
My laptop is officially dead. So, I’m in the process of buying a new laptop. I traded my citi thank you point for $575 of Best Buy gift card. I could get a new laptop and some, but the specs are not much improve from my old computer. I bought mine in 2008. 4GB ram, 500gb hard drive. Today, I get the same specs for $300 (7 years ago, it was $380), and Apple selling MacBook Air 4gb, 125GB for $999? What the heck? 7 years of tech revolution and Apple has gone backward. What a huge disappointment!
Needless to say that I don’t enjoy shopping. I mostly enjoy “window shopping” – shopping on Microsoft window, add everything into the virtue cart and back out. Now that my computer died, I need a personal computer to do my book, and some programming, but I’d like it to last. I’ll see how this shopping saga will get me a good deal. 🙂
