May EOM Wrap Up
May was my biggest dividend payout to date at: $161.60 :-)
Dividends by Month
2015 Dividend Goal Progress
I had a side hustle pay out some money plus an equity grant so I made some purchases in taxable accounts
This month I bought:
F @$15.53 for a starter position. Weekly chart is looking pretty weak so I'd be willing to add more in the 14.00-14.50 area.
Some reasons for the purchase:
http://www.thestreet.com/story/12993172/4/8-recession-proof-stocks-to-prepare-your-portfolio-for-the-next-cycle.html?startIndex=0 and 3.92% dividend yield.
WBK @$25.64 for some foreign (AUS) financial exposure. Weekly chart is looking weak (you'll detect a trend here) Looking to buy more below $25.00. Did miss the ex-dividend date though :-(
One of the four big banks in Australia, but the only one on NYSE and 5.72% dividend yield. I want to continue to get more foreign exposure although I will probably primarily do this via PID or IDV
HSY @$93.37 in my Loyal3 account I would love for it to get back down to $90/91 area and i'll buy more.
I'm bullish on NVDA for long term with their attempt to become the NFLX of gaming. Its also a tech company that at least pays a little (1.53%) to own it.
Reasons: it was $8 dollars cheaper than i bought it for my IRA back in Dec/Jan. Its on sale at the moment. Weekly chart is looking weak though. I plan to add more between $75-$78. 3.34% dividend yield.
Reasons: I own it, like it, its 6 dollars cheaper than I own it in my IRA. Looks like it found its bottom around 98 for the time being. 2.97% dividend yield.
Normal Loyal 3 purchases for May:
K, KO, DPS
Reasons: I buy whatever is red on my tracking chart for that month to average down.
