Bert’s August Dividend Stock Watch List

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.

Bert’s July Dividend Income Summary

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.

Lanny’s July Dividend Income Summary

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!
