September Account Activity

I enjoy watching my dividend income gradually grow. I have had 2 recent dividend increases: Pembina Pipelines 3.7% and Keyera Corp 11%. I am also enrolled in the DRIP (dividend reinvestment program) with Johnson & Johnson, Keyera Corp and RioCan REIT, therefore, my dividend income is compounding as well.

September has always been my most profitable month for option premiums, mainly due to selling Jan/16 puts. During the month of September, I closed several option positions to cover a negative margin balance. Although I have been over my available margin limit on numerous occasions, it has been very manageable. I have not had a margin call since June.

At present, the rewards for using 100% of my available margin outweigh the potential risks.

Listed below is my account activity for the month of September.
