I had a really busy month in November. I went on an options trading frenzy in September and October but I went on a buying frenzy in November.

I put over $16,400 of new capital to work
I sold puts in INTC and VOD. I closed a put in ADM and I was assigned 100 shares of INTC from another put I sold in September. My total profit from options is now at $2321 for the year before commissions. I’ve updated all of these trades on my Options tab.
I earned 117.05 in dividends for November. This brings my total for the year to $1296.43. My expected future 12 months of dividend income has increased to $2988.93 from $2493.10. This is an increase of 20% since October mainly due to new purchases. I’ve updated my dividend income on my Dividends tab.
I already hit my goal of $2400 in forward dividends by the end of the year. I’m really close to hitting $3000 now. My goal for next year of $3800 seems easily obtainable now so I may revise that upwards.
I just received my new insurance premium for rental until #1 , it came in at $885 , an increase of about 4$ a month. I hope to be able to increase rent this year. I also continue to aggressively overpay on my 2nd lien for my primary residence. My goal is to have it paid off by February eliminating a $380.35 monthly payment.
I underestimated my contributions which is a good thing. I now need to set higher dividend goals than I originally set. My portfolio value has more than doubled from 34k in April to over 74k now. This is mainly due to new purchases. I’ve made great progress since starting a DG strategy and plan to aggressively contribute next year. I am looking forward to higher dividends each and every year.
