With several of my holdings showing no sign of recovery, and feeling inspired to be more selective with my choices, in August I made some large adjustments to my dividend portfolio.
In my M1 Finance account, I had one pie that was made up of several Global X ETF’s. They were higher yield, but as the ETF’s themselves didn’t seem to be as well established, they didn’t bounce back with the rest of the market over the summer. I decided to cut my losses on them and move the money to more reliable dividend earners.
The other major change I made was moving several REIT’s from Dividend Stocks pie to my REIT specific pie. It wasn’t a change that necessarily had to happen, but it’s one of those little things that makes my brain happier.
Now, on to the dividend earnings report!

The dividends of August are a mild bunch. Not only are they mild, they are a small group too. My three monthly payers, Horizon Technology (HRZN), Realty Income (O), and Stag Industrial (STAG), made their regular appearance. The heavy hitter, batting cleanup and driving in the most funds, is the embattled MLP, Energy Transfer (ET).

I knew having a baby would change things, and one of the most obvious things to change is the amount of time I have to write blog posts. As much as I love producing content for Dividend Brothers, it falls pretty low on my list of weekly priorities. To be fair my trading has slowed down quite a bit as well, so I don’t have as much to write about every week either. All that to say, I’m changing the publishing schedule of my trade updates from weekly to monthly. This is a change that I’m quite sure will largely go unnoticed by most.
So in the future, the good readers of DividendBrothers.com can expect a monthly dividend update, a monthly trading update, and an occasional extra blog post (like my most recent one on Cryptocurrencies.)

Don’t worry, this isn’t one of those blog posts or articles. This is a little side project I’ve been working on alongside my trading and dividend investing. I wanted to share this with anyone who, like me, has an interest in cryptocurrencies but wasn’t sure if they wanted to commit their hard-earned cash to it yet. I will say right up front, this will probably not make you rich. However, you truly can earn free cryptocurrency without investing a single penny of your own money. I have over $35 in my Coinbase account and I haven’t linked it to my bank or funded it in any way. Here’s how!

My theme for the July update is to remember the wonder of simple dividend payouts. July 2020 did not live up to July 2019 in the dividend payout department. But, I got paid for doing nothing more than diverting money into companies. I’m still a wide-eyed school boy who gets excited about the idea of passive income and compounding growth over time.
