Lanny isn’t the only one to purchase stock recently, as I re-upped a stake in one position and initiated a new position in another. Both transactions have occurred over the last couple of weeks and added a nice sum of dividend income to my portfolio. This month has been crazy for me and has been one of my highest frequency trading months since I started investing a few years ago. Let’s see which companies I added!
One quarter is almost in the books. Lanny and I had quite the active month and added some nice dividend income to our portfolios, as Lanny purchased CAT (twice) and HCP and swapped LO for PM last week while I added four new stocks to my portfolio and re-upped my position in one tobacco stock (I’m not spoiling the surprise completely). As I said, a crazy month for us. While we were active and many companies paid dividends in March, it was a relatively quiet for Dividend Aristocrats as only a few were set to announce increases last month. Will that change in April? Did the companies follow through with their expected dividend increases last month? Let’s find out!
