Dividend Growth Stocks

Money in the Trough – August Dividend Stock Purchases 2019

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Here are the dividend stocks that I have purchased so far this August – with most of the purchases coming from our largest single day drop so far this year!  As Pastor Troy so famously said “since everybody thinks they soldiers then what’s up, we’ll go to war”.  And that seems to be where we find ourselves.  Trading blows with China in a trade war.  And, as with all wars, this isn’t going to be pretty or quick.

The USA adding a 10% penalty tariff on all goods purchased from China (starting in September) is a BIG DEAL!  The markets reaction, to what some call, a manufactured crisis is understandable.  All we can do is hope cool (non ego or political) heads prevail.

So far, I’ve put almost $3,300 to work with an average yield of 3.37%.  I’ve added almost $125 of yearly forward dividend income already this month!

The $T, $GIS, $CVS purchases were all made via DRIP.

My dividend portfolio has been updated with these buys.

All additional purchases made this June will be posted on this page.  I try to invest $2,500 – $4,000 every month. Last month I added a little over $5,400!

What have you been buying this month?

I'm a dividend growth investor who is aiming to retire early in 4 years at the age of 45. My goal is to live off the income my dividend portfolio and rental property produce exclusively and leave the corporate rat race. I hope you will join me in this journey!

    Sorry, but I don’t see it mentioned on your site. What brokerage account (M1, Stockpile, etc) do you use for your automated DRIP investing?
