Well, this has been an interesting start to September. It’s been a lot more active than I thought after last month’s big investing month.
Let’s talk about Coronavirus for a second: It looks like our second wave has peaked and are hopefully on the way back to normal… which should be great news for the market! After president Biden’s speech last night, I’m feeling really encouraged that Covid will soon be minor news!
As Biden mentioned, the percent of coronavirus breakthrough cases are inconsequential (unless it happens to you or a loved one). According to the CDC, there have only been 12,908 breakthrough cases that have resulted in hospitalization or death. That is super encouraging and truly means there isn’t serious risk to vaccinated individuals! Clearly, adults who have not been vaccinated have made that decision to not be vaccinated. In the USA they have the right to make that decision and now we know (and have real data) that there isn’t substantial risk to vaccinated people – it’s time to move on. Everyone I know got vaccinated to protect themselves and to allow us to return to normal. Based on the statistics and trends, it looks like that time in the USA is almost here! YAY!
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 $5,200 to work with an average yield of 2.8%. I’ve added almost $155 of yearly forward dividend income this month!
The $ENB purchase was made via DRIP.

My dividend portfolio has been updated with these buys.
All additional purchases made this September will be posted on this page. I aim to invest $2,500 – $4,000 every month. However, in August I invested a little over $15,000! Like I said, that was a big month for me!
