Wrap Up

The total combined dividends and options premium this week was $179.66. It is nice to a see a stream of income come into the accounts on a weekly basis. This “extra” money will be reinvested into the accounts to enable the accounts to grow. The growth account rebounded a little bit this week after being down quite a bit the past few weeks. Well, that’s about it for this week.
