April is an average month for passive income. Compare to April of last year, passive income went down by almost $100 and this was due to a company delaying it’s dividend distribution to May. April was another slow trading month. This month I added more shares of VT and OHI.
March is a good month for passive income. Compare to the third month of last year, passive income went up by over $200. March was another slow trading month. This month I only added more shares of VT.
February is usually a slow month for passive income. Compare to the second month of last year, passive income went up by over $250. February was also a slow trading month for me. I added shares of VT and SPY.
January passive income was a great start to the new year. Compare to the first month of last year, passive income went up by over $200. January was also a busy trading month for me. I sold BMY and bought GILD. I also added more shares of AGNC, QQQ, OHI, and VT
It’s tax season and this is a good time to review how my retirement accounts performed last year. I have a 401k (traditional and Roth) plan through my current company, a rollover traditional IRA from my previous company and a Roth IRA that I opened over a decade ago on my own.
I have been contributing to my retirement accounts since I started working after college. The first company I worked for does not have a 401k match, so I only contributed about 5-8% of my starting salary. After my company was bought, the new company provided a 50% match up to the first 6% of my salary. From that point on I have contributed the maximum into my 401k. The new company gave me two options for my old 401k, to withdraw all the money from the account or convert it to a Traditional IRA. I chose to convert the old 401k to a Traditional IRA.
