Dividend Income Roundup – August 2016 – $9001.57

Dividend Income Update

So the reason behind doing this is I decided to round up as many dividend investors dividend income reports as I could find and rank them based on earnings to see where I stack up against the rest. Certainly we’re all on our own paths unique to our own circumstances and goals, but it’s always interesting to see where other people are at. I also am curious the ideas & purchases the community as a whole is making as well.

This month it seemed like two popular ideas were WFC and FLO. These are two companies I think have too much risk that investors are not adequately being compensated for, but they seem to be rather popular, so perhaps worth looking at if you’re searching for new ideas.

Also, if you publish a dividend report on your blog and would like it included in next month’s post then please let me know in the comments!

Here we go for the dividend income leaders for August-


2016-07-31_04351) Dividend Hustler $2,501.78

Commentary: I like checking out his blog, and as a result resolve to start calling people “buds” more often. Or maybe I’ll use dude to keep my own voice. Also I need this Ferrari and life probably.

Purchases: AltaGas, Concordia International, Flowers Foods

2) $25,000 Dividends $1,121.38

$25000 DivdiendsCommentary: This guy buys stocks I know nothing about. Which is why it’s a good blog for me.

Purchases: Manulife, PowrCorp, Telus, Sunlife

3) Dividend Driven $1,014.75

dividenddrivenCommentary: This site uses advanced or remedial technologies that surpass my understanding. I’m not sure. Has a nice dividend snowball.

Purchases: I can’t really see what moves he made this month. Maybe I am just not skilled enough to know how to find this on his site, so there you go.

4) Dividend Earner $1,010.90

Dividend Income Earner

Commentary: Overheard, “Investing is akin to watching paint dry. Not much happens when you have a long term dividend growth investing strategy.”

    I think the tracking posts are for some weird reason my favourite. And Dividend Hustler seems like a real laid back dude.

    • Greg Gee
