Trade - Sell

I sold out my position of America Realty Capital Properties Inc. (ARCP)

231 shares @ $8.05 on 12/24/2014

I was actually going to hold on to this company even if they cut the divided by half, but I was not planning to add to it in the future. The reason why I sold is because they decided to suspend the dividend payments for the near future. That was the last strew for me.


Invested $3,020.26
Total Divided Received: $224.49
Amount after sell: $1,852.50

Not sure how I get my ROI. Maybe one of my readers can help me with that. :)

I think I got a ROI: -33.7%

I put this money right back to work. I will mention the two buys this month  in my next post as well as my 2014 in review and 2015 Goals post.

Lesson learn here. Buy quality with history/track record.

    WOW I passed $200 in a single month for the first time. That right there can cover my total expense for my car.

    One of my many Goals is to receive $2,000 in dividends for this year.

    With this year dividend completed. I received a total of $1,614.61 of dividends. WOW!!

    This put me at 80%. I did not reach my goal for total dividend for the year, but that's OK. As long as I am trying has hard as I can to save and invest the money, I will be heading in the right direction.

    Don't forget to check out my Dividend Income page which shows the total income by month.

    This month I also made a sell and two buys. Keep a look out for those posts as well as a 2014 in review and a 2015 goal.

    Thanks for reading and commenting.
