To add some variety to the website, I am providing images from some of the amazing trips I have experienced over the years. The following photograph was taken at Old San Juan, Puerto Rico in 2014.
This week I spent some time taking some profits on positions that I caught the recent bottom on. I then moved these funds into my RothIRA and my wifes IRA. Eventually I would like to buy these positions back at lower prices than I sold. I still believe that oil is going to take one more drop, so my profit taking was in anticipation of that.
I officially changed the way I invested in Jan 2014 by becoming focused on Dividend Growth. Looking back I can't believe that in July my future 12 month dividends were at $1372 and now my rate is almost 3x that much at $3415. This week I increased my annual income by $73.10.
$1300 of Baxter International Inc (BAX) - This will increase my annual dividends by $39.52
$320 of Sprott Inc (SPOXF) - This will increase my annual dividends by $15.90
$170 of Toronto Dominion (TD) - This will increase my annual dividends by $6.48
$330 of Caterpillar Inc (CAT) - This will increase my annual dividends by $11.20

2 shares of TD for an overall gain of 6% - I sold this position because I wanted to move it to a Retirement account so I could avoid paying the 15% withholding taxes on the dividends. Looks like I nabbed a short term high so I purchased the position back several days later plus 2 additional shares at a lower prices than i sold.
11 shares of WMB for an overall gain of 19%
8 shares of BBL for an overall gain of 21%
