August 2016 Income

In total, I received $278.82 in dividends for August 2016. Due to dividend cuts from KKR and KMI, I actually dropped substantially this month (first time that has happened!). Last August I received $414.84. The loss of KMI cut out about $89 this month and KKR dropped it by another $50. The rest came from selling some AAPL ($70 less in dividends this quarter from last quarter).

So far I’ve received $2,877.46 in 2016. Despite the dividend cuts, this is $242 ahead of last year’s dividend income…not too shabby!

I also finally got paid so will be making some purchases soon-ish. Just need to find something that is cheap in this market!

Options: No current open options, though I am planning on opening some new ones soon.

  3. Keep it up Scott. You’re doing awesome bud.
    Just keep at it and don’t let this little setback keep you back. Look towards the future and tomorrow and you can only move higher and higher. I’m sure of it.
    Cheers and thanks for sharing. Take care bro.

  4. Scott.. Awesome month. Who gives a F**** about KMI….kidding, we were all bit by that one. The good news is that the bad news is in the past and you have so much good news to look forward to in the future. After all, you already crossed your dividend income total from last year….BOOM! Keep chugging away and keep on plugging.

    It really sucks when you get dividend cuts. Nevertheless, close to $300 in dividend income is great — congratulations!

      Thanks for commenting, FerdiS. I’m hoping that from now on each month year-over-year will show at least small gains. In the meantime, I’ll be taking your route and selling puts and calls to gain some extra income.

    Great results for the month of August. Happy to see some regular posts coming in now. Those results are not too shabby indeed. Nice to see a couple names in common paying us for the month. Looks like AAPL is your heavy lifter. Any plans to level off your passive income stream going forward so you aren’t too reliant on just a handful of stocks for most of your income. Thanks for sharing.
