September was an average month for passive income. Compare to the third month of last quarter, passive income went up by about $15. In September I added more shares of VT, MAT, and MYC and picked up 50 shares of GE.
All the stock indexes are continuing to reach new heights, so again I am being cautious of buying individual stocks. In September I reinvested some dividend income and added GE to my portfolio. GE is at its 50 week low and the dividend yield looks pretty good. I also added more VT for baby butterfly’s college fund until I figure out her 529 plan. I also added more MAT and MYC to my portfolio.
My investment strategy is to continue to invest conservatively in the stock market, but when I see a great deal, I will continue to buy. I am in it for the long run so when a stock reaches the 52 week low, I will buy. My mission to continue to build up my Muni Bond Funds to cover the interest on what’s left on my mortgage continues.
|Emergency Fund Interest||$84.37|
|Monthly Passive Income||$911.85|
|2017 Passive Income YTD||$7,091.33|
I am very happy with this year’s passive income progress. Looks like I am on track to earn over 9K this year!
