August Dividends

imageAs August ends and September is soon beginning we are gonna tally up the dividends to see how much we got this month. of course this month has traditionally been the lowest month so nothing much to get excited about except it was moving up bringing in more each month. well lets add up these numbers. August was also my blogiversery month of 1 year.

As we can see 10 companies and 1 mutual fund paid me 320.56 which blows away the previos middle months all those buying is starting to pay off and reap the rewards. My YOY is 281 percent thanks to buying and reinvesting the dividend.

With the 11 different streams of income this averages 29.14 a company. If i were to go to my Durango Joes coffee shop at 2.97 a cup that equals 92.07. VOD would cover my coffee for the month. That would leave me after the coffee with 228.49 left for the month which would cover 2 bills with a little left over.  But i will invest those dividends and it added 13.24 extra shares. This month breaking what i earned down into per day comes out to 10.34 a day add that 320.56 to my yearly haul and i have gone over 2,200.46 dollars a year for the first time ever. My average for the day per year is 9.05.  We are moving on up. My Average per month has gone up to 275.05 which brings my amount for the year looking like it will be $3300.69. its gonna be exciting.

How was your month? Did it treat you good?

  1. Hi Doug,
    Congrats on the continued increase! Nearly 300$ year on year is definitely something to celebrate 🙂 I’m looking forward to seeing your September progress as that’s usually a good month for dividends.
    Best wishes,

  2. Thanks for sharing your dividend income! Congrats on your blogiversery too! You had an amazing YOY increase with $320.56 while posting a 281% increase.

    My month was ok. Nothing close to yours. I earned $4.59 in August. But I’ll be looking to continue investing and reinvesting dividends to post large YOY increases like yours.

    Thanks for sharing! Keep it up 🙂

  3. Wow, that’s some impressive growth you got!
    My month is okay. I almost cross the $5K, but dividend is lacking. I’m waiting to drop $50K into the market should the market go into correction if the government shuts down. In that case, I can improve my dividend income by 3x. LOL 🙂

  4. Another real world example of what dividends can provide. That’s a sweet total that can cover quite a few expenses in a month whether it’s your Durango Joes coffee or some other bill. Keep your eye on the long term prize! DGI is the marathon of investing. Thanks for sharing.
