Can we get another article out about dividend stock purchases or what? Yes, this is yet another dividend stock purchase article, covering my last two weeks of activity. 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. Though the stock market has continued to roar, set new highs and show the bullish signs, there are always dividend stocks being undervalued out there. Therefore, I made a few purchases over the last two weeks and let’s find out what I bought!
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.
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!
