August 2016 Dividends and Passive Income Progress


In August I bought 32 shares of KR, 32 shares of VOD and 13 shares of GILD(additional). 

I had post about KR and VOD here.

I bought more shares of GILD just before August was over, so I didn't make a post about this purchase.

I also made purchase in my Loyal3 account. This month I increased my monthly investing balance by $50, total of $300 per month.
You can read my post here.

August was not big dividends month for me.

Dividends received in August 2016:
AAPL$7.83
BMO$17.29
DRI$19.82
KMI$8.80
NE$0.65
PG$17.60
RY$11.93
T$14.06
TD$15.24
YUM$0.34
Total$113.56

This is 7% decrease comparing to August 2015, which was due to decrease in dividends payments KMI and NE.

  1. Even though August was not a big month for you, you still collected more than $100 in dividends, which is great -- hopefully, the September (quarter-ending) month will be great for you!

    1. Hello! Thanks for your kind words. Yes September is usually much better month. Best wishes

  2. Looks like your Aug is a bit like my July, not super strong compared the other other months :) On the upside, your June income is crazy so I look forward to a really good September update!

  3. Just got my check for $500.

    Sometimes people don't believe me when I tell them about how much money you can earn filling out paid surveys online...

    So I took a video of myself actually getting paid $500 for taking paid surveys to set the record straight once and for all.
