Bitcoin,Litecoin Purchases

 Recently I started to add some bitcoin purchases in my Account .Having Bitcoin in Robinhood  made it easier to purchase, some of my earlier purchases back in 2018 were done in Coinbase and at that time Coinbase allowed purchases to made using credit cards. Now it can be done but it will be coded as cash advance.

Bitcoin Purchases


Currently they are small positions, I am still going to buy my regular Dividend Stocks ,Now i am  investing some amounts in Growth stocks with no dividends or some as speculative plays. Most of the dividends are set for Drip.

2021 January Dividend Report

 2021 Already began and one month Gone. Slowly Life returning to normality and its  time for one more dividend report. After many  reports of  income increase reports ,this one will be a decrease compared to last January report. This month i received $355 .85 in dividends which is $15 less than Jan 2020 income. One new Name in Jan 2021 report compared to 2020 is CINF.

Dividends Cut: Dividend Cuts  from last year  are still  big impact on this month report ,as you can see  it reduced my dividends by $70. Hoping to see if DIS will resume their dividends some time this year.

Dividend/Options Income : This Year i would like to keep my Goal of 2020 of 11k and will see if i can  achieve the Goal. I Started doing  covered calls last year and it brought be me some income, I didn't include that one dividends. 

I will be adding some funds and buying some  stocks ,but i am hoping to get closer  to 11k goal  either with dividend increases or  401k buys that happen twice a month.

2020 December Dividends

 2020 is in books , one of the most unexpected years at least in my generation. Now coming to dividends i had a high hopes for December, but it turned out anticlimactic .I received less dividends this year compared to last December and it was significant.

One of the reason for significant reduction was very small distribution from RERGX one of my biggest funds .In 2019 I received more than 1300 in dividends and distribution from them.

Overall Dividends received were $1677,This is 38% decrease from 2019.But overall dividends compared to 2019 went by $10. This Year my goal was to get 11k in dividends and I achieved 82% of the goal. This year i will raise the goal to 12k Dividends. It will be very interesting to see where I will land.

Overall with all the things considered I  am ok with where things ended.
