August 2017 Dividend Update

It's time for my August dividend update! For the month of August I was able to earn $372.58 in dividend income.

In made one purchase for the month in Altria, I wish I would have waited a bit since it's even cheaper now. That's how the market works and that's why I'm not a trader. My timing is usually pretty crummy in the short term. Other than my one purchase I had a pretty quiet month but still managed to earn some steady income as you can see below.

  • Altria (MO) - 19 shares @ $65.71 = $1,255.44

Bitconnect Update:

I was not in Bitconnect for the entire month of August but on average I would have earned 0.95% per day. So far I've earned almost $100 in income with my $1460 investment. It is free to join but I put in a little over $100 to see how Bitconnect worked then I added another $1200 or so later. The platform pays interest based on the trading volatility so some days you may only earn a little and others you quite a bit. For instance today paid out 1.76% but tomorrow looks like less. I'll keep you posted on my progress. They also have a referral program which gives sponsors a little kickback as well.
