Man oh man has October been exciting so far. Lanny and I started off the month strong by making several rounds of investments (Lanny’s summary article can be found here and mine can be found here). We were feeling pretty happy with our decisions. On top of it, I created a dividend stock watch list to prepare myself for another set of purchases. Then, well, we all know what happened. The market had a massive two-day sell-off. Many investors capitalized on the downturn and we have been seeing a lot of purchase articles featuring some great stocks. This may be one of those articles, as it reflects my purchases from right before and during the October sell-off. The splash isn’t as large as you might have thought and we are still being patient. But I did have the chance to purchase three different stocks last week. Here is a summary of my second round of purchases in October!
At the end of my September dividend income summary article, I mentioned that I was extremely motivated and excited to purchase some stocks in October. Shortly after, I put together a watch list identifying four dividend stocks that were on my radar. It did not take long for me to put some capital to work with some of the stocks on this watch list. When a stock price falls after you add it to your watch list, how could you say no? These purchases were small and frequent due to our free trade credits from Ally Investing, so there will be a few different stocks in this article. Here are the stocks I have been purchasing over the last couple of weeks!
The dividend stock purchases machine keeps rolling! Yes, this is yet another round of dividend stock purchases, covering my last two weeks of activity. I am going to start doing this now, from an article standpoint, as my dividend stock purchases are becoming more frequent, due to certain life events and brokerage changes. The stock market was more volatile the last two weeks, creating value on dividend stocks I own. Therefore, I made a few stock purchases over the last two weeks and let’s find out what I bought!
Shortly after I purchased shares of KHC last week, I decided to jump back into the action. Mr. Market presented two opportunities for investments that were on my watch list. So I couldn’t resist the opportunity to add some nice dividend income, right? Here is why I purchased additional shares of Kraft (again) and initiated a new position in National Grid (NGG)!
Can we get another article out about dividend stock purchases or what? Yes, this is yet another dividend stock purchase article, covering my last two weeks of activity. I am going to start doing this now, from an article standpoint, as my dividend stock purchases are becoming more frequent, due to certain life events and brokerage changes. Though the stock market has continued to roar, set new highs and show the bullish signs, there are always dividend stocks being undervalued out there. Therefore, I made a few purchases over the last two weeks and let’s find out what I bought!
I have been on quite the buying spree lately and have made 7 investment purchases within a 4 week window that I’m excited to share with everyone. The stock purchases may be within a company that was already in my dividend portfolio or this could be an entire new position. The one common trait that they all share is fairly simple – the stock purchases all produce growing dividends and pay on a quarterly basis!
This was a busy week. After a month or so, my wife’s Roth IRA finally transferred from Capital One Investing to Ally Investing. With this transfer came a sign-up bonus and free trades for 3 months. So if you haven’t noticed, Lanny and I have been busy putting these free trades to work. We’ve had plenty of small purchases! When my wife’s account transferred over, there was some cash available from previous transfers and liquidated partial shares. So I decided to put the money to work and add to two positions that she currently owned!
