Portfolio Value Update - August 2021

Welcome back to my blog. I hope you’re doing well and enjoying the summer. August is now behind us and it’s time to report my monthly progress.

Portfolio Value
In August, my portfolio value increased by $4,433 from $128,527 to $132,960. The increase is attributed to new stock purchases and stock price appreciation. I added $3,417 worth of new stocks in Enbridge and in TC Energy on August 19, 2021. You can read more about these purchases in my previous post.

Dividends received in August 2021: $453.41
Dividends received in August 2020: $406.10
Year-Over-Year Dividend Growth: $47.31 or 11.64%
Year-To-Date Dividend Income: $3,644.25

I’m pretty happy with a double-digit growth rate. Over $450 per month in dividend income is great, but I will try to push it to $500 by the end of this year.

Ads Revenue
Adsense revenue from my YouTube channel has increased by 56% compared to last year, mostly attributed to channel user growth and higher views count per video.
