August Update and Recent Buys

I have been busy for the last month with other tasks, but I have made some additions to my portfolio. I also have removed some positions. I will report on the progress of last month as well.

Roth IRA:
I have removed 20-21 shares of KMR since I felt my position was overweight.
I then bought 44 more shares of O (O share price has fallen greatly).
I have added 500 dollars of cash to my Roth IRA. I am going to add 2000 more to my Roth IRA in the coming months to max my contribution. Once the cash settles I will buy more shares of REITs (I am eyeing ARCP and HCP right now).

Taxable:
My taxable account ran out of free trades today. So I did a lot of trading to balance my portfolio more to my liking.

I started new position in the following positions:
  -SO
  -UNP

I added more to my existing positions:
  -BAX
  -AAPL
  -T
  -PEP
  -KO
  -MCD
  -GIS
  -KMB
  -CMCSA

I removed some shares from these positions:
  -ROST
  -KMI

I no longer hold these positions:
  -DE
  -SDRL

The final portfolio of my Roth IRA + Taxable is shown below. The portfolio has recently crossed the $40k mark and now provides over ~$100 a month in dividends. I am quite happy with the dividends that I am receiving this month (September). The dividend amount is constantly growing and it is getting more noticeable. I am not able to pay all my utility bills using dividends.

Since I have added more into REIT, utilities, healthcare, a bit into industrials, and removed some of my positions in energy, I was able to balance my sector weightings closer to my goal. I still want to keep the majority of my portfolio in staples since I prefer to be more conservative.

Below is a graph showing the weightings of the various companies that I hold. I am happy that I am now less weighted towards the Kinder Morgan companies (nothing against the company though!). My weighting in O is currently very high but that will decrease as I continue to add to other companies in the coming months.

I continue to contribute to my company 401k and here is the list of Vanguard index funds that I still hold. The value of the funds has crossed the $10k mark.
