Dividend Portfolio Update: August

At the start of each month I update my Dividend Income Portfolio.  Though I am very late this month, I have now made updates to the following: 

     * Current holdings 
     * Each holding's current yield 
     * Each holding's respective % of my portfolio
     * Each holding's % of my total income 
     * 2011 Total Annualized Income 
     * Morningstar's Average Star Rating of my portfolio

See an updated list here for the month of August, or click on the 'Portfolio' Tab above.  

Any advice??

That’s all for now. Thanks for reading,

Recent Buy...

As some of you know, I began investing in individual companies back in January 2010.  Then in January 2011 DividendPartisan was created.  Well, I recently made another purchase - nothing fancy, just adding shares to a company I already own.  In fact, I initiated a position in this company with only 15 shares back in January 2010 (that was all I could afford). 

That purchase was one of my first stock purchases EVER, and was part of the 'original six;' the six companies I started with to create my dividend income portfolio.  Well, with the recent massive drop in stock price, I decided to pick up some more shares and thereby considerably lower my cost/share.

The company I just purchased was:

While I Was Out...!

Good afternoon investors and faithful readers, :)

This has been the longest drought in my writing since DividendPartisan was launched back in January 2011.  As a result, I feel I should first apologize for my extended absence in posts - my apologies.

So, with that, here's what's been going on:
