Lanny’s Recent Stock Purchase – Bed, Bath & Beyond (BBBY), WestRock Co. (WRK) & Illinois Tool Works (ITW)

August has been hot and heavy with dividend stock purchases already!  As you can tell from the title of the article, this isn’t about just one dividend stock purchase.  We are talking a nice double triple punch to the portfolio.  However, “punch” has a much more positive tone.  Prices were ripe and I deployed a bit of capital into three young dividend producing & growing stocks!

Bert’s Recent Stock Purchase – Tyson Foods (TSN)

July was a long month for my portfolio.  With Capital One selling their investment portfolio to Etrade , I was looking for a new trading form.  After many, many talks with Lanny, I finally settled on Ally Investing.  My transfer was initiated at the beginning of July, but my assets were not fully transitioned until the end of the month.   This waiting period was unique and shook up the flow of the first six-months of the year that saw me making a lot of stock purchases.  For the first 30 days of July, I did not make any stock purchases.  However, on the final day of the month, I was able to sneak one purchase in.  Here is why I purchased shares of Tyson Foods (TSN) on July 31!

Lanny’s Recent Stock Purchase – Starbucks (SBUX)

I hope everyone got the gist that I was buying a stock from my July dividend stock watch list!  It surely did not take me long to deploy capital in a highly valuable company.  Now, I may not have bought a stock in the order I thought that I was going to do, but still fit in my plan for purchases.  It excites me to say, that the love for coffee, dividends and company culture, has engaged me to purchase stock into Starbucks Corporation (SBUX)!

Bert’s Recent Stock Purchase – Starbucks (SBUX)

The month of June was coming to a close and I was looking for another investment opportunity.  For the second half of the month, I had one of the most publicized companies on my watch list.  The company’s stock price had began to fall.  Having added to my position earlier in the year at a higher price, I was instantly excited for the opportunity to add to this coffee giant.   Here is why I added to my position in Starbucks (SBUX) in June!

Bert’s Recent Buy – Consolidated Edison (ED)

Lanny and I were painting the Dividend Diplomats’ headquarters last week (aka – his house).  He left to take a quick water break and came back pretty excited. When he gets this tone in his voice, I know that only means one thing….there is a great stock that’s price is falling.   He brought up the fact that Consolidated Edison’s stock price was down over 1.5% that day.  Instantly I was excited because ED is one of our Top 5 Foundation stocks.  After a brief discussion, I was sold. Here is why I added to my position in Consolidated Edison in June.

Lanny’s Recent Stock Purchase – Armanino Foods of Distinction, Inc. (AMNF)

Wow!  The market has been busy and I have been trying to stay as active as I can, as there are quite a few things going on outside of blogging, working and family.  I typically buy big, blue chip companies who have that 10, 20 or even 30+ years of consecutively increasing their dividend.  This recently dividend stock purchase may be a little different.  One thing the community may not know is, I am Italian.  Needless to say, I love pesto, pasta, meatballs and cheese.  Here is a smaller company that I purchased, that sells these products!  I will go into the details on how I came across them, how much I purchased and why I ended up purchasing them!  On June 8th, I purchased 500 shares of Armanino Foods of Distinction, Inc. (AMNF)!

Lanny’s Recent Stock Purchase – Procter Gamble (PG)

No, no it wasn’t a stock on my beloved June dividend stock watch list.  It wasn’t a stock that should be unfamiliar, however. In fact, my recent purchase is a second purchase I’ve made in this iconic, legacy-brand fulfilled company this year!  I couldn’t be happier to have made an additional purchase, at an even lower price that an earlier purchase of this dividend stock. On June 1, 2018, I purchased 20 more shares of Procter Gamble (PG)!
