Recent Buy And Recent Sell - October 2015

In the last week, I've decided to take some action in my portfolio - I've sold 1 stock and bought 2 stocks, I did this to take profit and make more dividend income.


I've sold my all GE shares, after the news about the swap (if you want) of GE shares for Synchrony shares, the stock price of GE also got too high for me before the swap, so I took the profit , and will watch  in the next couple of months to see what will happened with the stock price.

Side Hustles - September 2015

It is the time to post about my Side Hustles, I try to bring as much income as I can so I can pay my child support(Alimony), I try to build few income streams in case I will lose again my day job income - Like it was before.

So here they are:

Dividend income - $70.68

Ads on this blog and my other blog about coins and stamps - $0.09

Delcampe store - $1.25 sales (Not profit!!)

eBay Store - $14.50 sales( Not profit!!)

Recycling Cans and Bottles - $12.58

Total Side Hustles for September: $99.10

My side hustles don't picked up yet, the ads on my blogs still are low income, but my main problem is the low sales in my eBay store and Delcampe store that it seems that the sales don't pick up, but now the holidays season starts so I will keep the stores open.

The Dividend income and recycling cans and bottles generate solid income so far.

Another month has passed by and I'm glad to share my journey to financial freedom due to alimony.
In September I earned $74.46 (after tax) in dividends  -

AFL - $3.80
V - $1.80
CVX - $11.23
ADM - $5.67
IBM - $7.80
TGT - $8.40
XOM - $5.47
MMM - $6.92
WBA - $4.05
HSY - $4.81
UNP - $4.12
WMT - $6.61
DOV - $3.78

In September I had less dividend income due to the sell of my 5 ETF's in August , but I got 1 new dividend from DOV that I bought in August. Also I've got some dividend rasies in TGT , HSY , WBA.

How was your September dividend income?

I'm long on all the above stocks.

Dividend Portfolio Update - September 2015

Well, the time has come to update my dividend portfolio once again as heading to another start of a new month. My portfolio is my way to freedom from looking after funds to pay my alimony. One day, the dividend income this portfolio generates will fully cover my alimony. It’s important to keep in mind that I'm updating the overall value of my portfolio because if I have setbacks  I will use the funds in my dividend portfolio to pay my alimony.
