I'm writing an instablog - I know of a few people who have read some, but the main reason for writing it is to clarify my thinking (and likely confuse you) before I invest in something every month or so. And also to act as a journal I can review every so often. I work as a mental health nurse.... More

    I suppose I should list what I currently own in this account:

    arr.pb - 16 shares - current value $391 - 8% yield paid monthly

    etv - 80 shares - $1062 - approx 10% monthly (approximate because I'm dripping this as long as it's at a discount)

    etw - 93 - $1051 - same as above

    exg - 68 - $656 - same as above

    grh.pc - 22 - $392 - 13% yield monthly (yes, this one is very risky)

    jgt - 37 - $367 - 8.5% (bleah, may have picked a bum with this one)

    rso.pb - 25 - $622 - 8.25%

    So a bit over $4500 depending on the day of the week. And likely to go down further if the high yield hysteria continues. Which is kind of disheartening, but I didn't really start til last November. And things I would like to own are starting to go on sale.

    The overall yield is approximately 10% which is above the 8% minimum I'm going for.

    And I'm able to currently contribute $335 every two weeks for the foreseeable future which is a lot better than it used to be.
