My May investment income increased to $76.53 from $63.83 the month before. My investment income has been rapidly increasing the last few months due to the rising stock market. My Roth IRA had been slow in recovering but last month it finally started making decent progress toward recouping its earlier losses. It still has a ways to go to break even though. My personal portfolio has done much better and is showing a nice profit. This is mostly due to one stock going from $9.15 to $22. I wish I would have put more money in it now but I’m not complaining. I also added about $1600 to my stock portfolio this month. I will be putting most of the money I receive from the medical study in my stock portfolio. My investment income has almost tripled since I started tracking it last year. If I could maintain this rate of increase being able to retire early would be no worry at all.
Disclaimer: This is not my actual investment income. To get this figure I first add up my retirement savings, emergency fund, and any other money I consider permanent savings. What the total of my savings would earn at 6% interest for a month is my monthly investment income.
