Dividend Growth Stocks

Money in the Trough – August Dividend Stock Purchases – 2021

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

It’s already been a really busy month for dividend stock purchases.  I can’t believe we are already 8 months into 2021!  It’s not only super hot here in Atlanta but the market is also blazing to new highs.  However, we’ll have to see how the delta variant might cool things down over the next couple of weeks.

I keep a running log of every dividend stock I purchase which can be viewed in the dividend growth stock purchases page.

So far, I’ve put a little over $4,400 to work with an average yield of 2.4%.  I’ve added almost $110 of yearly forward dividend income this month!

The $GIS & $CVS purchases were made via DRIP.

New Buys - August 2021

My dividend portfolio has been updated with these buys.

All additional purchases made this August will be posted on this page.  I aim to invest $2,500 – $4,000 every month.  However, in July I invested almost $9,300!

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!


  1. Congrats on putting that much capital to work! Especially on the heels of your very busy July.

  2. Looks like a busy month buying shares! You’re well over that 4 grand/month goal.

    Hoping the Delta variant slows down, but it’s not looking good…

      Yeah, me too! I’ve read that we should see peaks in the warm weather states soon. Then we’ll see peaks in the more Northern states later this year – once the cold weather hits. I hope that’s accurate!
