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)!
Weather is heating up and it’s time to put on the spectacles for the dividend stock watch list. I feel like I have been on the side lines for such a long time, not having purchased a stock in weeks. Over Memorial Day Weekend, I was able to take time aside and really focus on the quality of stocks that are out there. As others know, I came to find out that there are many opportunities out there for us and it is such a hard decision when it comes to which one to add, to the dividend portfolio. Bert comes out with his expected dividend increase articles, others are buying stocks on the daily, it seems, and you know what, it’s time for me to see what sights I should be set on. Without further-ado, here are my dividend stocks I am watching for June!
I just couldn’t sit on the sidelines on a certain company any longer. I saw Bert purchase a massive amount and then the dividend community was scooping up share, after share, after share. The market was still bumpy this past week and I decided to make a purchase in the earlier parts. I didn’t have as much capital, as I’d like to, but I did have a free trade credit at my disposal, that was going to expire in a few months. therefore, i decided to put my capital to use and buy an undervalued dividend growth stock for the portfolio! From reading the title to this article, you can only take a wild guess on what that company is. Read further on the details of my recent dividend stock purchase!
I couldn’t hold back any longer. Time to take the thinking of making a purchase and, instead, just buying when the metrics are right. The metrics were right for me in this instance. A few days ago, I made my second dividend stock purchase of the year and it was a “safer” play, some may say. Let’s just say, the winter has been very, very cold this year and that usually means larger than normal gas bills. I decided to buy a dividend stock, that will help offset those utility bill increases! Let’s see what dividend stock I purchased to warm up the portfolio.
I keep a copy in PDF of my portfolio every quarter, and have a deeper dive at 12/31, but this also provides a blog’d example of where I stand, so I can always refer back on the site the historical position of my portfolio. As we have done in the prior years, this post will be an overall recap of my portfolio, the contributions, dividends going forward, dividends received, what I can analyze from the current position, etc.. It’s always fun to see what the year compiled into one snapshot of all of the hard work that goes into the dividend engine. I am excited to see where it stands and what can be done going into this new year! Let’s dive on in. Continue reading
Wow… I can’t believe I still remember how to buy stock! It has been almost 2 months since my last stock purchase, when I purchased shares in AT&T (T) and Hormel (HRL) back in October. Can I say that it feels good to be back? I couldn’t help but sit on the sidelines, as during that two month period, the S&P 500 index has increased well over 4%+ during that time period. My dividend stock portfolio has been bolstering record-highs and finding opportunities out there has been difficult, to say the least. The stock I purchased has not moved in that two month span, and when dating back to three months ago, is actually down 10%. On December 21st, I purchased 58 shares into HCP, Inc. (HCP) and let’s dive in to see why!
It’s beginning to look a lot like “investmas”, as the dividend stocks are on this DD’s radar! I am attempting to sleigh ride my capital, making my list and checking it twice, as I’m trying to find out if the dividends are naughty or nice. Yes, I had to throw that in there for the Christmas spirit, but there are a lot of interesting opportunities out there for my portfolio! The cold weather has not only been hustling it’s way in, but also has chilled down the stock market in certain areas. Come on in and read more on who is on my Dividend Stock Watch List this Holiday Season!
