It has been a few months since I have purchased my last stock and man oh man am I starting to get an itch. Times have been interesting for me recently. I am arms deep in working through project after project in our new house and have been hoarding my cash lately in the event we stumble on an unexpected “surprise.” But I am extremely motivated to purchase some stock after seeing my cash balance increase, Lanny make some moves by purchasing Cisco, and reading through so many great dividend income summaries in our monthly dividend income summary from the blogging community. It is getting harder and harder to resist. So now, I thought I would put together a watch list to prepare for when the right moment strikes.

The captain is back in the steering wheel and I directed the ship to another stock investment purchase. This so happened to occur on August 1st and felt nice to start the month off with deployment of fresh capital. As I look to close out the last 5 months of the year strong, i made an additional investment purchase into Cisco (CSCO) as the dividend metrics were right up my alley. It’s time to jump into my stock purchase, in order to find out why and how the dividend metrics appeared.
2017 is flying by. I barely know what hit me for work here in July. Between travelling for work and gaining possession of our house, I have barely had time to sit down, relax, and focus on things. But I must say, I couldn’t be happier doing some of the house work and I am finding it fun and therapeutic (especially when I am listening to music while painting). Before I knew it, July was over and it was time for me to recap my performance and write my July dividend income summary. Let’s see how I performed during the month.
Another month down and another month closer, they say. Closer to financial freedom! This pursuit of financial freedom and/or financial independence has been such a ride, I cannot wait for what’s to come. The fireworks have come and gone and now we are hitting into the peak summer heat here in Ohio and it will start to cool down towards the end of the month, as Fall begins to enter our territory. Hopefully that means that just the temperature outside cooling and that my portfolio’s dividend income is heating up! Let’s dive into my dividend income results from the month of August!

So each month, we take summarize a listing of Dividend Aristocrats (and a handful of non-Aristocrats) that are set to increase their dividend in the coming month to share our excitement with the community. Now it is time to dive in and see which companies are expected to increase their dividend in August!
