More Dividends Update from October 2019

More Dividends - Dividends Income

August turned out to be a pretty good month for More Dividends! I saw a lot of growth organically in the portfolio. Plus I was able to make some new additions to the portfolio. I am excited to see what the future holds for the portfolio because I am truly enjoying the journey that it has taken me on so far. I continue to look for good opportunities to either start new positions or strengthen some existing positions.

Stock Additions

The month of October brought a very interesting change. During the month, my broker decided to start offering $0 trade commission fees. So I have started to make smaller purchases of stocks. This month, I was able to add small amounts to some of my existing positions.

Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) – 3 shares

ExxonMobil (XOM) – 4 shares
