Boring process of building up my passive income portfolio brick-by-brick (bit-by-bit).
1. December is the 4th best month of the year for me; after May, August and November. These four months provide >$1K dividend incomes.
2. Finally US announced a modest interest hike in Dec. The hike was not excessive and the market reacted positively. Well, as I said ealier, it is best to get over this inevitable thing.
3. My earlier projection on my dividends on current portfolio in 2016 gave a number very close to $10K. This allows me to work hard towards the big milestone of $12K per year or $1K per month.
4. Although the $12K milestone looks a bit over-stretching, I think it is a challenging but reachable target. Considering the potential return in capital (playing cheat a bit here) from Saizen Reit, I just need another $1K to close the gap.
