We continue the discussion from the last entry.  

When I speak of market performance?  I like to use professional terminology.  I’ve said this many times over the years.


Basis Points, or BPS.

However … at a certain point, nominal numbers have their place.  Especially within the bounds of this project, as we discuss in the following video entry …

Actionable View of Markets for ‘Sharpe Income’

IBM will pay us our dividend on March 10, 2015.  As we also now own JNK, this will also pay us our dividend at the beginning of each and every month, beginning also on March 10, 2015.  As noted in the above video however, for monthly income we will only count IBM’s dividend.  Not the dividend from JNK.

We put in the time, persist, and let let these capital contributions pile up.  As you will note within the attached PDF, we only have $213.30 in the project account at this time. So we persist, and wait while the capital contributions increase the size of the account.  We have about 4 weeks before we can make another purchase.  Plenty of time, and we can impart a few lessons in the meantime.

The link to the Google Drive Spreadsheet that you can view, that we will edit, build upon and refer to over time can be found at this link.

We continue the Sharpe Income project with this next entry.
