Overall Total Dividend Income for August 2016: $86.07

My Thoughts:
This was a nice bounce-back month for me, as July was the low month of the last quarter. Buying shares of ABT while below $40/share definitely paid off, and it is a joy to see the dividends growing. It was also good to see a TD Bank dividend shortly after starting a position (just before the Ex-Dividend date).

For some perspective, let's take a look at my dividend history:
