  1. AA,

    $920 in January passive income is insane. It looks like you are really riding PM and MO hard. They are real work horses! Keep up the great work.

  2. Hi MDP,
    Yup, MO and PM are 2 of the most shareholder friendly companies on the planet. I havn't added to MO for a while but have been adding to PM.

    Thanks for stopping by!
