$200 of BP
$400 of DEO
I used $600 in new capital and added $24.35/year to my dividend income. This is an average yield of 4.06%.
I’m still adding to DEO here. It’s slowly building up to a full position. If DEO stays under $110 , I plan to keep adding some shares. They have a giant portfolio of alcoholic beverages with great international exposure, what’s not to like?
Two weeks in a row I added some BP, although this was a smaller purchase. They are below my cost basis and I believe most negative news is already built in at this price.

I’m meeting with a chef this weekend. We’ve already talked over the phone and I hope I can work out a deal for him to start working by the end of June. I am worried the chef wants to remodel the kitchen and that’s not an expense I’m looking forward to. I have opened the bar with a temporary menu. It’s been a success so far. With very little advertising, I’m getting as many people as I can handle until I’m able to hire more staff. It’s good practice and good to learn the POS system to work out any kinks.
