Dividend Diplomats’ Recent Buy – Kroger Co. (KR)

The buying spree continues here on our website.  What makes this one more fun, and we haven’t done this in a long time, is that the two of us purchased the same stock within minutes of each other.  Lanny has been the most active of late and recently purchased shares in Cisco.  Bert on the other hand, has been mostly on the sidelines since him and his wife purchased their first house.  Last week though, we saw an opportunity that was too good to pass up and pounced.  See why we each purchased shares of Kroger (KO) during their recent slide.

Lanny’s Recent Stock Purchase – W.W. Grainger, Inc. (GWW) X 2

Well, with my first purchase of W.W. Grainger (GWW) at $193.78, the market took it for a $13+ slide or almost 7%.  If I bought the aristocrat then, then why the heck wouldn’t I buy it on a sharp decline due to guidance going forward?  An aristocrat is usually an aristocrat for a reason.  With that, it was time for me to not only get back on the driver seat, but to get back into the GWW lane this past Tuesday, where I made my second round purchase!

Lanny’s Recent Stock Purchase – W.W. Grainger, Inc. (GWW)

Closing out the April month on a high note!  I have deployed more capital into a dividend aristocrat, as the stock price was falling down, a dividend increase was coming up and the timing was too tempting for me to sit on the sidelines.  This marks the 5th individual stock purchase this year and the second in April alone.  Feels great being in the driver’s seat, in my own lane on the highway to financial freedom!  Come check out the purchase of W.

Lanny’s Recent Stock Purchase – CVS Health Corp. (CVS)

Wow, wow.  So it’s been over two months and I have definitely found a stock that fit the metrics of an undervalued dividend stock investment.  It took some thorough research and thinking about the companies that many people take part in every single day or have made them a part of their lives.  With healthcare and prescriptions, this led me to this stock and this company shows high signs of undervaluation.  Come check out what company I purchased stock into and why!
