  1. Over $4k for a quarter sounds pretty awesome to me. Congrats on continuing to grow your passive income stream with a pretty substantial forward dividend income too. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks Keith. I suffered some pretty big cuts in income with the BBL and KMI cuys but it feels good to getting close to my levels before the cuts. Keep up the good work yourself!

  2. What you have is like a part time minimum wage job from the dividends you are bringing in that is awesome keep it up

    1. Thanks man. I just keep trying to add to my forward dividend total every week. Stategy has worked well since I implemented a few years ago.

      cheer, AA

  3. AA,

    Looking good man! Have you been watching TEVA lately? It's starting to look pretty good.


    1. MDP, congrats on building the pipe again! I do have a sizable position in TEVA and have been nibbling recently. It has been on the pain train along with GILD.

      Look forward to watching your future buys!

      cheers, AA

  4. Fantastic quarter. Not only is your dividend total impressive but your additional purchases are too. $6k for the quarter works out to $24k a year. Are you adding this amount and still contributing to a 401k or IRAs?

    1. Thanks Options Hunting. I only document my after tax purchases/ passive income totals on this blog and have already maxed out the $18.5k for my 401k this year. I dont contribute to a IRA.

      Thanks for stopping by!

      cheers, AA

  5. Great quarter, in my opinion. Keep up man.
