August Dividend Update

What a crazy month for the world markets August was. We saw some crazy daily and even hourly movements as well as an overall market selloff. I think the markets may continue to stumble for some time and that's going to allow us to make some purchases at lower and lower valuations. My most recent purchase was GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) which was my only purchase in August. My dividend total for the August was $309.01 which is a new all time record high for me!

In comparison, last years August total was $227.68 which means my dividend's for the month have grown by 35.7% year over year! Next month is looking good as well. 

August Purchases
  • GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) - 25 Shares @ $44.00
August Dividend Increases
  • Kinder Morgan (KMI) - From .48 to .49 (+2 %)

  1. Congrats on your dividend income for August and the increase over last year. You have great stock picks for the long term.


  2. Captain Dividend,

    Great month! You have to love the current cash cows of AT&T and KMI! So awesome, and they produced quite a "bang" to your dividend income this past month. Keep it up!


  3. Another great month Captain. You have some solid companies paying you dividends. Also, congrats on crossing over the $300 mark in monthly dividends. Your probably feeling the compounding effect take place now.

    Best wishes and continued success my friend. AFFJ

  4. Another great month Captain Dividend. Up up and away!

  5. Great job. Your graph is always heading higher every month. Keep up the great work Captain!

  6. That moving average must be great to see!

  7. Hi Captain,
    Congrats on a record setting month. The 2nd month of the quarter is typically a slow month for me and many other dividend investors, but your portfolio seems to be doing great all thru. All the very best.

  8. Looking great as usual, Captain. Your monthly income balancing act sure makes for a pretty chart! Keep at it, this is such terrific progress to see.

  9. Great Job Dividend Captain, keep the snowball rolling.
