Main focus was to secure good income in August. EMA.TO, CVS, GIS, PG and T purchases contribute to that goal. CSCO was the final push towards July dividends, and UNA.AS is looking as far as September. That's a bit over 700 bucks invested in businesses that are among the steadiest income producers in the world. Now I don't have much cash ready to deploy, but the good thing is that dividends keep flowing to my brokerage account, and soon there will be powder for new buys again!

Are you looking to buy any of these names right now?

Thanks for reading. My Portfolio page has been updated to reflect these trades.

Disclosure: Long EMA.TO, CSCO, CVS, GIS, PG, T, UNA.AS
