Dividend Stocks Portfolio (Update) - August 2015

Here is the recent update to our dividend stocks portfolio – August 2015.

SALES 

This past month we did not sell off any shares from our family's dividend stock portfolio.  But since we did not sell any shares throughout the month of July, that also means that our annual dividends did not decrease either

As some of my friends would say, "I'll drink to that!" :)

TOTAL VALUE OF ALL SALES: $0.00

OVERALL DECREASE TO ANNUAL DIVIDENDS: $0.00

 
 

PURCHASES

The momentum of our  stock buying activity this past month continued from last months report.  For a second straight month, I am happy to report that we ended the month of July with at least 5 buy transactions.  Many DGI bloggers had similar success as evident in our recent post: Collection of RECENT BUYS (Summary) - July 2015 

All in all, great month with lots of solid companies out there at attractive prices. Hope it continues!! we certainly would like to keep this momentum going for a 3 consecutive month. :)

With the purchases this month, the family dividend stocks portfolio now contains a total of 44 different companies/ETF that all pay us a dividend.

The following is the actual buy that we made during the month of July:

With the additional $111.51 in dividends, our new estimated annual income is now $3,102 or and average of approximately $258/month.
  

TRADE COUNTER

We are blessed to have a PMA trading account with Wells Fargo Investments.  With our PMA trading account, we receive 100 FREE trades a year!  How awesome is that?!? So far, we've used a total of 72 trades out of 100.  Our trade counter will reset on 9/15/2015. That means we have roughly a month and a half left to use our remaining 28 free trades before our trade counter resets.

DIVIDENDS

During the past month,  our family received dividends from a total of 13 companies/ETFs!! The total dividends received from those 13 companies/ETFs was: $310.95.

  1. Awesome month with a lot of solid buys! I'm quite jealous of your July dividend income as it is one of my slowest months. For some reason I gravitate towards the March, June, September and December paying stocks. Have a great August!

    1. Thanks Ken. We were happy to have had the opportunity to grab some shares at what we felt were great values.

      Keep buying adding to your dividend income stream. Soon, it won't matter what month it is. Eventually, every month will be a good month!

      Thanks for stopping by. Best wishes! AFFJ

  2. Hey AFJJ,

    Those are very solid additions!
    EMR was a popular stock in July.

    Averaging down on CVX is also on my wishlist.
    As are many others. I've got some choices to make. :)

    Best wishes, DfS

    1. Thanks Dividend for Starters...although we do work hard to keep our expenses way below our income, we still feel blessed to be able to put the amount of capital we continue to put month after month. Stay tuned for an upcoming Recent Buy post as we just made another purchase earlier today!

      Best wishes and success no matter which stock you decide to buy. AFFJ

    1. Thanks HHWG. BTW, nice to see you are getting your teenage daughter exposed to stocks at her age. If she buys and holds for the long run, she will look back one day and thank you while appreciating that she started at such a young age.

      Best wishes and continued success on your financial journey! AFFJ
