I’m reporting my automatic purchases for this week:
$750 of MO
$500 of BBL
$400 of DE
$350 of AWR
$250 of UL
$250 of KMI
I used $2500 in new capital and added $92.11/year to my dividend income. This is an average yield of 3.68%.
Large purchase this week. I had some extra capital I wanted to put to work before the end of the month.
I added more MO before the ex-dividend date. They recently had a nice raise and I believe the company will continue rewarding shareholders for a long time.
BBL is now a full position. Even with the “demerger” talks, I decided to add a little extra after the pullback.
I think DE is at a great value and I’d like to bring it up closer to my position in CAT since I want these to end up being half positions.
I recently added AWR last week. I plan to keep adding more while dollar-cost-averaging on this great company that’s been paying out higher dividends for 60 years!
It’s nothing new that I keep building up a full position in UL. With a giant portfolio of well-known brands and 3.5% yield, what’s not to like! I’m getting closer to a full position.
KMI is already a larger position of mine, possibly the largest. The recently announced news to consolidate into one company sent shares up quite a bit. I believe KMI still has great long-term growth going foward. I’m also more confident after Richard Kinder laid out his dividend plan for the next few years.
Just for some fun and to add some color I will be posting pictures of places I’ve been to. It’s also motivation to reach FI so I can travel and do what I want to when I want to.
