August 2016 Dividend Income

Details are below for income I received in August, but in summary, I received $116.68 from 10 different stocks. These were reinvested to increase my annual dividends by $7.30. This is slightly higher from my August 2015 results, and that is due largely to owning more stocks this year than last. I kind of forgot about my FRIP plan to buy MMM as it auto buys whenever there is enough money in the FRIP account to buy. This month, I had enough to buy the 1 share of MMM which I am ok with. I love MMM but it has had quite a run up like most other stocks recently.

My new projected annual dividends are now at $1,554.68
