On April 8th, 2019, I bought an additional 100 shares of First Trust Specialty Finance and Financial Opportunities Fund (FGB) at $6.17 per share. 

With its quarterly dividend payout of 0.175 dollars per share, this latest buy has a dividend yield of 11.34% and will pay us $17.50 (before tax) every quarter. Awesome! 

FGB is paying in the following months: February, May, August and December

This is already the second time I'm buying FGB, I first bought a humble 82 shares of FBG back on July 10, 2018
