September 2017 Dividend Update


It's time for my September dividend update! For the month I was able to earn $573.56 in dividend income! This is my largest monthly dividend total! This was the first time I've earned over $500 and wasn't too far off from hitting the next goal of $600. September is usually a big month for me and it was a massive 42% increase from last September. I don't expect that to continue but was nice to see for sure.

In made one purchase for the month and had no sales.

Bitconnect Update:

September was another solid month in Bitconnect. I have earned over $600 worth of bitcoin in Bitconnect with only a $1400 initial investment. September payouts averaged .89% per day. That's not a typo, yes that is per day! Right now I am reinvesting 50% of my payments, the rest is going to my bitcoin wallet. You can learn more about Bitconnect here. I remain skeptical of the program but so far it is paying me regularly each day.

  1. Good job Captain. I see that we hold some of the same positions. It is great knowing that the companies we own will continue paying us dividends for a long time.

    That is awesome that you are into bitconnect! I also invest with bitconnect but I have a smaller intial investment. One difference though is that I reinvest 100% of the money in my lending wallet. It seems to be a great platform.

    Great post Captain. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing!

  4. Nice job Captain! I agree, love seeing your average increase. That is one heck of a dividend from Flower Foods. Heck, you received 4+ new shares from them from dividend re-investment alone. Now that is how you keep the snowball moving!

  12. I got my FLO too and wish I would have bought more at the time. And I think all of us were wishing we had bought bitcoin in 2010.
    Cheers,
