We continue the discussion from the last entry.  

In the last entry, we bought some PCY and TLT for the ‘basket’ we will have of capital gains assets.  We contributed our capital for this week and that leaves us with $369.16 in cash, according to the rules of this particular project.

We are still within the beginning phase of Sharpe Income.  We’re still trying to get everything ‘set up’ so to speak.  At the present time, we will continue to concentrate on taking the capital we build up each week in the project, and look to buy the capital gains assets of PCY, TLT, JNK and IVV.  Our capital allocations (this is taken from the PDF attached below) for this week are as follows …

In the meantime, we have made some improvements to the spreadsheet that tracks this project (the link to the spreadsheet is below).  We discuss this, in the following video entry …

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.

    In the PDF, I noticed a mistake. It says JNK yield is 2.62% where it should say TLT yield is 2.62%. Time for me to watch Dan’s video.

    Also the cost in the PDF needs attention also.
