A quick over view for those who would otherwise have no idea about what I'm posting about. My investment criteria are: 8% or greater dividend yield 15% increase in dividend or greater over the past five years. nice to have: monthly dividend optionable With Royalty trusts and LPs as well as regular companies I have a decent universe of issues to increase my annual income. My brokerage annual income estimate only counts dividends paid but not net option revenue or a 15% increase in income over the past six months plus I think another 10% in expired option premium income. Since I have been buying lowest priced targets first moving up the food chain gets harder to do the longer I follow this strategy. that is irritating and my parking strategies have been dubious. Any ideas?
