August is done which means my favorite time of the year has arrived, Fall. I hope everybody had a great summer and their portfolios are working hard for them? I added $650.00 to my portfolio which I used to buy 20 shares of AGNC for $19.00 a share for a total of $384.95 after fees. This added $43.20 to my forward dividend and brought my yearly divided to $2106.12.
My dividends for August came out to $155.93. This was an increase of $91.38 or 141.56% over August of 2017 and an increase of $28.48 or 22.35% over May of 2018. My running total for the year is now $1,317.03. With 4 more months left in the year I feel like I might be able to hit $2000. Fingers crossed. As the say, slow and steady wins the race.
