Dividend Income - August 2014

Once a month I will be updating the dividend that I received for that month.


August 2014 Dividends Received:


  • Realty Income Corp. (O) - $4.02
  • Deere & CO INC. (DE) - $7.80
  • American Rlty Cap. PPTYS (ARCP) - $19.25
  • Clorox Company (CLX) - $11.10
  • Kinder Morgan Inc (KMI) - $48.16
  • Procter & Gamble Company (PG) - $9.65
  • Caterpillar Inc (CAT) - $9.80



  • Total dividends for the month of August: $109.78

    One of my many Goals is to receive $2,000 in dividends for this year.

    I am 46% complete in reaching my goal. At this rate it looks like I will not make this goal I set out for myself. That's OK. 


    Also, don't forget to check out my Dividend Income page which shows the total income by month.



    Was August a good month for you?

    Goal Reached

    I am happy to announce that I reached my net worth goal of $70k yesterday. I actually did not think I was going to make that goal this year. However, not only did I make it, but I am going to surpass it by a wide margin.

    I use mint to keep track of all my accounts. I love that website.

    Here we have all my assets and debts.



    I love the way this graph looks. Just need to work on getting rid of my debts. I started investing and saving on Aug 2013. You can see how at that point my net worth has been taking off.


    Since I reached this goal. I am going to put a new goal for my net worth. By the end of the year I want to pass $80k, I think I have a good shot as long I continue to save/invest as well as pay down the debt.

    You can check out my other goals Here. I also updated it with the new goal.

    Thank you to all my readers for the support and comments.
