    • Yup, Silver Wheaton changed its name to Wheaton Precious Metals about a month or so. It was to take the name Silver name out since the company has 30% in gold streaming

  1. Nice income stream. You should show not 3mo average but 12mo as I can see you have some seasonality in your income. Looks like some slowdown in past year or so. Why is that?

  2. A solid total for the month despite a year over year cut in passive income. As usual I see a handful of common names paying us for the month. Any plans to boost your second half 2017 dividends to meet your goal or boost your other passive income streams? Thanks for sharing.

    • No set plans right now, DivHut. Steady as she goes for now. Im hoping that I can boost a bit of my income with some options perhaps — but depends on what the market throws my way.


  3. Hi R2R,
    Congrats on a great month! Although it looks like you’re a little behind the yearly target, December should overcome that with a larger payout. Lots of income from diverse sources – love it 🙂
    Best wishes,
