It seems like the months are just flying by. The stock market retreated a bit recently which has been more than welcome! I've been toying with the idea of dripping stocks next year, but utimately couldn't justify it. I'm going to continue to selectively reinvest dividends into what I deem to be the best companies and/or best value.

Added $50. So far no problems, everything is current. I'm still learning the system and not comfortable putting a lot of money in this yet.
$4.51 from OFC-PL. This was the first payment for series L, which included some days from the previous quarter since it is a new issue. I only included the normal amount in my monthly totals. The extra couple bucks will not be accounted for in my quarterly updates either because it will not happen again (isn't sustainable).
