Returns as of Nov 2014

This report includes a Monthly Statement, Income and Portfolio Value Returns for the year, and Annual Returns since 2010.

I'm still busy on a special project for work, so I decided not to make any trades in Nov, and won't be making any more trades for the rest of the year. Hopefully, I'll be able to resume trading in January 2015.

Returns as of Oct 2014

This report includes a Monthly Statement, Income and Portfolio Value Returns for the year, and Annual Returns since 2010.

I was still busy at work on a special project, so I decided not to make any trades in Oct, but still managed to earn a small amount of income from dividends. I probably won't make any more trades for the rest of the year due to this work project, especially with the holidays coming up.

Returns as of Sep 2014

This report includes a Monthly Statement, Income and Portfolio Value Returns for the year, and Annual Returns since 2010.

I was extremely busy at work on an important project during Sep, working very long hours. I didn't have the time necessary to properly manage my portfolio so I decided not to make any trades. One benefit of investing in dividend paying stocks is that although I didn't have time to trade, I managed to earn a small amount of income from dividends. I may or may not make any trades in Oct, and possibly the rest of the year, depending on how soon we can complete this project.
