What a crazy week this has been for me. Life comes at you fast sometimes and you have to be willing to absorb some punches and go with the flow. I couldn’t be happier with how things have shaken out this week and I can’t wait to eventually write about it all. Finally, with a few hours to concentrate, I wanted to share with you a couple of dividend stock purchases I made in March. Nothing crazy, but as always, we like to be fully transparent with the community. Plus, these names have been featured on our watch lists recently. Let’s check out the stocks that I purchased and added to my portfolio!
Talk about limited activity over here. Doesn’t help that it was a short month, but the month of February saw gains in the S&P 500 of 2.88%. Therefore, you had limited days to buy, a day off in the stock market and the overall market surged almost 3%! Yes, my activity was very low this month. So low, that I am beginning to even think the freezing temperatures we endured took an affect on my dividend stock purchasing! Let’s see what I was up to from February 2nd through March 1st!
I am happy to see the Polar Vortex didn’t take anyone down, I hope. We are a full month down and it was nice opening February up on a Friday, as I was able to squeak a purchase in on that day. What’s wild, though, is we have gone from devastating cold temperatures, to running outside in shorts a few days later. Thank you OHIO! Well, enough about the weather, it’s now time to check out my dividend stock purchases over the last two weeks of January and first day in February!
January has been off to an interesting start. Lanny has crushed it with his stock purchases over the last 30 days, adding some serious dividend income to his total. Me, not so much. I’ve been on the sidelines for a while now and talked about how frustrated that was making me in my last dividend income summary. Now, that’s no longer the case and I’ve finally made my first stock purchase of 2019. As the title suggests, I purchased shares of Dominion Energy recently and here are some of the main reasons why.
2019 has been interesting to say the least. I know the market is up and down every single day and earnings releases are just around the corner, literally. I have been working through year-end reporting with regulatory filings, in addition to compliance filings, with external auditors/regulators barking on my door, therefore – work made the days pitch black in the morning and pitch black at night. The only light being shed are the dividend stock purchases, right? It’s now time to check out my dividend stock purchases over the first two weeks of January!
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!
