Weekly Roundup - February 11, 2017
|Happy Weekend! Check out what's been going on in my world and some of the best articles from around the blogosphere.|
As I expected my activity with options in my Rollover IRA has decreased significantly over this past week. Part of that is due to the market not providing a whole lot of opportunities, but it's primarily due to not being awake during the majority of the market hours. Since I'm working nights it makes it a lot more difficult to be able to scan for potential opportunities. I went from the high single to double digit weekly option moves to only 2 new positions being opened this week with 4 being closed. I'll highlight all of the moves early next week, but I really hope to find a way to keep the options moves rolling along.
Although the good thing is that my portfolio and dividends keep chugging higher whether I do something or not. That's the real power of dividend growth investing. This coming week I'm expecting potentially 4 dividend raises to be announced.
