Hope this can provide some useful information, of course the guy who looks out the window everyday might pop by but we can just ignore him.

For me, I am selling put options on some stocks that I do not mind holding.
However, as Apple stock is expensive, I get only about 0.5% return per month on my capital $40,000.

Also, I am also invested in a fund, EXG that pays dividend monthly and the yield is ~7% per year, after US dividend tax.

I did some research on convertible bonds which seem to payout some dividend and provide some upside when stocks go up as can convert to stocks but most are priced above par so haven not shortlisted any so far.

So guys, any good opportunities to share other that COE price going up, look out window, sell HDB flat and retire overseas?

Well I've been asking myself the same question for a long time too. Tried a couple of ways like playing in gigs and all, cos I sing and play the guitar. Always thought that passion could bring you money, especially since it's a sideline, but it wasn't sustainable.

And then I dabbled in some affiliate marketing a couple of months ago, and it seems pretty promising. Looks like I did find something after all.
