Recent Purchase - AT

Well, that was the correction we were looking for!

I took advantage and picked up 154 shares of atlantic power (AT) at 12.74 per share.  This will provide around $14.50 per month in dividend income, or $174.02 per year.  I know that I didn't get it at its absolute bottom, but I'm happy with this purchase price.

I get another infusion of cash in my taxable account at the end of this week.  Hopefully prices will stay depressed for the time being and I'll be able to get more good deals!

What did you guys buy on the correction?

October Dividend Income Update

Another month has passed, and its time to update my monthly dividend income.  I had a great month this month; I wish they were all this good.  Without further ado, my October Dividend income:

Taxable Account:

CIM - $135.00
Bank Stock "X" - $3,798.00
GE - $17.00
O - $10.60
NM - $18.00
ERH - $75.00

Total in Taxable Account - $4,053.60

Roth IRA:

ARR - $99.90
GGN - $9.00
STB - $18.91

Total in Roth IRA - $127.81

TOTAL - $4181.41

Another great month!  ARR's dividend got cut, but I'm not terribly concerned.  The mREIT environment is a little shaky right now, so its not a company specific thing.  Second, its still a large dividend, one that was large enough to pretty much purchase the shares that I have in GGN, as those shares that were purchased this month were almost exclusively purchased with the dividends I have collected from ARR throughout the year.  Anyway, a long-winded way of saying I'm not concerned.

It was a busy month for me, I made 3 purchases overall; GGN for my roth, INTC and FGP for my taxable account.  I still have some money in my taxable account, so look for November to be another busy month as well.  How was your October?
