Latest Stock Buy: 100 shares of XIN (Assigned)

Updated: 8 April, 2020 seen 37

On January 17, 2020, I bought (got assigned) 100 shares of Xinyuan Real Estate (XIN ) at $5.00 per share. With its quarterly dividend payout of 0.1 dollars per share, this latest buy has a dividend yield of 8% and will pay us $10 (before tax) every quarter. Awesome! 

XIN has been in our portfolio since October 2018, since then I have been selling covered calls and naked puts on it. That's actually how I got assigned it now, I was selling a naked put on XIN a while ago. And in January 17, the put expired in the money and I got assigned. As XIN is a great dividend payer, no regrets. Even more, I can sell covered calls on it (not a big money, but every bit counts)

By now XIN stock takes 7.82% from our US stock portfolio, and also is one of the biggest dividend payers in the portfolio by now. 

My average cost per share so far for acquiring XIN is $4.60/per share and that includes premiums I have received in the past

For the rest of the year, we are looking to take $34 (after tax) from this buy, which is about 0.94% from our $3,600 goal for 2020

2019 in Review and Financial Goals for 2020. 

In total XIN now contributes about $150.96 (after tax) yearly to the dividend income portfolio.

From now on I plan to sell more covered calls on XIN and collect hefty dividend every quarter.
