2018 is over and I know there are many of us that have been able to make intense investments, when the market had turned south in December. Though the temperature and the overall market are getting cold, the dividend portfolios are staying hot! It’s now time to check out my dividend stock purchases over the last two weeks of December!
Wow, has December been a crazy month in the stock market to say the least. Lanny has taken advantage of some of the craziness and put some capital to work and so have I. There have been some frustrating moments for me (I’ll describe those later in the article). But overall, I was excited to grab some stocks at a discount and continue to build my forward dividend income. Luckily, my account was still eligible for free trades and I was able to engage in a lot of small trades. With a fresh cup of coffee in hand, I’m ready to summarize the stock purchases. Let’s dive right in!
Yes, the financial investment engine of my dividend portfolio continues to receive steady capital on a consistent basis! The last purchase article saw me deploy $2,500, which was on the lighter side, but let’s just say that these two weeks did not disappoint They say money never sleeps and these prior 14 days were no different. It’s now time to find out my dividend stock purchases!
The holiday spirit is in the air and we are closing in on the end of 2018. With Lanny serving a healthy dose of inspiration by sharing with all of us that he crushed a major dividend investing milestone ($12,000 in annual dividend income, aka $1,000/month), I’m as motivated as ever to continue investing as much capital as possible into income producing assets. So today, I sat down and put together my initial December dividend stock watch list. There are a handful of companies on this listing, so lets dive right in!
The start to December has provided some rocky moments in the market, to say the least. There was a new stock that popped up on my screener (which will also be on my watch list going forward at these levels). It is the holiday season and I’m sure you have seen their delivery trucks buzzing around the neighborhood. Here is why I have initiated a position in United Parcel Services (UPS).
Like Lanny, as he noted in his November purchase article, this has been a relatively quiet month from a purchasing perspective. After a crazy October that saw wild swings in the market and a lot of small purchases, November was calmer as many companies rebounded from that rough October. Of course though, there were some opportunities that presented themselves. I had to dip my toe in the market a little bit, right?? Here is a summary of my November stock purchases!
The dividend stock purchases machine keeps rolling! Yes, this is yet another round of dividend stock purchases, covering the first two weeks of activity in November. 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 has continued it’s roller-coaster ride, creating value on dividend stocks I currently or have wanted to own. Therefore, I made a few stock purchases over this time period and let’s dive in and find out what I bought!
