August 2013 Dividend Income Update

Another month over, another month of dividends hitting my account. The taper-talk is getting a bit old. Interesting to see what happens to the market when the FED reduces stimulus. I have been building op some capital in the last few months, even tough I'm long stocks, I root for a pullback in the markets, I have some dry powder I'd like to use!

Here's the dividend update for August 2013:

Dividends Received

  • GIS: $14.06
  • T: $17.10
  • MA: $1.80
  • ABT :$2.80
  • ABBV: $8.00
  • KMI: $33.20
  • PG: $10.83
Total dividend income for August: $87.79

My 2013 goal is $1000, so far I'm 61.49% of the way there, my progress is tracked here.

Looking forward, next month will be a big month for me, more than half of my positions will be paying out. I'm also expecting dividend increases from MCD, MSFT and PM. I can't wait!

Thanks for reading


  1. Great job! Keep up the good work. That's some good capital right there you can reinvest. Slow and steady wins the race. :)

    Best wishes!

    1. You're exactly right, slow and steady wins it in the investing game. Thanks for stopping by, appreciate the support!

      Take care

  2. It looks like your goal is within reach. I wish I would have started dividend growth investing at your age, I'd be far better off at this point. Keep it up!

    1. Captain Dividend,

      It's basically certain I'll reach my $1,000 dividend goal, great! I'm very fortunate to have started at such a young age, building this portfolio in my 20's will make my life so much easier in my 30's and 40's and thereafter when I'm receiving thousands of dollars in passive income.

      Thanks for replying, appreciated!

  3. Exponential Dividends,

    You are doing excellent especially for your age. Being able to hit over $1K a year this early on puts you far ahead most people several times older then you. It is always nice to gladly scoop up the shares of high quality companies and income when others pass it up for whatever reason.


    1. Dividend SWAN Investor,

      Thanks for the kind words. I'm certainly thankful that I could start this journey very early in life. You're not doing bad yourself either, keep it up!

      Take care

  4. 23 year old dividend investor. Man I wish I had wised up and gotten into dividends at that age.
    Keep up the good work.
