Here is the dividend income report for August, 2015.
The monthly dividend income came out to $406.45. The yearly income total for 2015 through the end of the month was $3084.90.
The income for August, 2014 was $323.94, and the yearly income for 2014 through the end of August was $2456.27.
I bought some shares in my new taxable account. Two were new stocks: water utilities Connecticut Water Service Inc. and SJW. I also bought KO and SON. I already have KO and SON in my traditional IRA. I will sell them in my IRA, and use the money to buy more of some other stocks in that account, perhaps JNJ.
The goal of the taxable account is to own enough shares of each stock such that each dividend payment will be enough to buy another entire share. I do not have as much in that account as in my others (since I did not want to put ALL of my savings into the new account), so I am limited in the stocks that I can buy. I have concluded that most of the potential stocks that I could put into this account are companies that I already own in my other accounts.
I also bought more ETN for my Roth IRA.
