Dividend Update - August 2012

August was a slow month for dividends with only 2 companies paying out during the month.  I'm looking forward to September rolling around when I will have the majority of my portfolio paying out for my largest monthly payout so far.  I'm still holding out for a market pullback to let me get more of my cash working for me at better entry prices.

There were 2 new purchases this month with 35 shares each of Walgreens (WAG) and Archer-Daniels Midland (ADM).  These will add an extra $38.50 and $24.50 to my annual dividends before dividend increases or reinvestment.

  1. congrats on a good month. I liked both of your buys, ADM and WAG. I actually sold puts in August on ADM. I bought bought shares of WAG and sold puts in June on weakness about the express scripts deal. I like both companies long-term.

  2. Thanks! As far as dividends are concerned it wasn't the greatest month but my recent buys in August and yesterday are going to really help out my dividend income adding just over $180 in annual dividends before reinvestment or increases. Plus it's looking like my INTC put will get exercised adding another $90 in annual income. Things are really starting to add up.

    Thanks for stopping by!
