August 2019 Dividend Update

Hello everyone! I have started my Fall semester and continue to work a FT job as I take my second from last course before I complete my MBA degree. I have made a few moves recently which increased my risk and reward. I sold some of my PSEC shares before earnings and used the money to trade options. I made some profits on a couple of those trades so far. School is unbelievably expensive for the amount of income I am making at my job and nowhere near to covering tuition, books, and all these extra fees. On top of all that they keep on raising the rates on me as I progress throughout the program. Therefore I am hoping to make money and save some from trading within the core dividend portfolio to save more, pay off/possibly refinance high interest debt, and invest more down the line without carrying as much of a debt load. Once I finish my degree it will be nice to not have to keep on owing more money.

  1. Swan -

    Cheers to you, for continuing to persevere through your program. You've got this. See the light at the end and burst through it. Find that energy. You can do this.


    1. Lanny,

      Thank you! It is definitely a hard program to get through and the costs of getting an education is a bit crazy. I guess no one can take it away from you at least. I love your blog and those monthly dividend posts from all the bloggers.

      Keep up the great work!

  2. That is one long list of quality companies paying you. Very nicely done. Keep up the good work and I hope you finish your MBA soon. Cheers

    1. Buy, Hold Long,

      Getting a paycheck from these companies just by owning some shares is really great. I should be graduating in early May 2020. I hope I can eliminate some of this debt as soon as I can.

      Thank you for stopping by,

  3. nice long list of companies paying you. Kepp it up

    1. Dividendsandhobbies,

      Not a bad deal to spread out the paychecks around. It is good to see that so far each month this year I have exceeded last years monthly totals despite the challenges of trying to pay off debts.

      Thank you for visiting the site and all your support,

      The Dividend SWAN
