It is that time again, for every investor it is the favorite time of the month. The time to stop and count the dividend received from the previous month and analyze what you received and plan for future dividend payouts for the months ahead.

Recent Purchases and Raises - March 19- April 1 2019

Recent Purchase - March-April
It has been a few weeks since I post my purchases, So it is time to update everyone on my purchase the last few weeks. The Market has been on a tear of late. This has made it hard to find deals to invest in. So I will be focusing on adding shares to current holdings and average down when necessary.
It has been my motto to ignored the market noises and focus on buying quality stocks that can weather the storm no matter what the market conditions are and can keep up paying and raising dividend in the process.
Without further ado here is what I recently added to my Dividend Pursuit Fund to reach FI/FIRE.

April 2019 - Watch List

Watch List -April 2019 It is the beginning of a new month (April) and the planning on what I should purchase has started. Compared to previous month I will limit my purchase to a few hundred dollars this month. Tax will be due soon, a new Car is on the horizon, which I hope not to finance. So I may decide to sell few stocks to finance it instead. My hope is to work another 5 years at current Job and transition to part time job down the line to keep a steady income. 
This will mean I will loose some current monthly dividend income that I am currently receiving. However, no debt should accelerate the accumulations again in no time. 
Without further ado here is what is on the horizon for me to purchase this month:  T (AT&T) I currently hold 18 shares and I hope to add more shares here this month. At current level it is a good time to add more shares to this dividend aristocrat. The stock is currently yielding north of  6% which is very juicy, with the synergies that will be gain with…

Recent Purchase March 8-20 - Update

Recent Purchase Update - March 8-2019
As the market continue to be on the upswing in the last few weeks, there are less and less bargains where to park my money. However, I did try to keep up with the theme to buy on a regular basis despite market conditions. But this does bring back the idea to buy 1 to 2 stocks a month. I will be trying that next month and see how it works for my FI/Fire Fund.

Without further ado, let us review what I purchase in the last few weeks:

March 13, 2019 IRM 6 shares @ $35.19 total $211.14
LEG 5 shares @ $43.62 total $218.10

March 18, 2019 TUP 2 shares @ $27.05 total $54.10

The three purchased were both to add shares to my holding and also to lower my cost average on all three stocks. With this purchase I added $483.34 in fresh capital and this will add $24.39 in forward yearly dividend.
What do you think of recent purchase? what are you purchasing this month?  Are you on the sidelines?

Recent Dividend Raises - March 2019

Dividend Increases - March 2019

One of the best news any long term investors will ever receive, is that one of the stocks they hold decided to share their wealth with the investors.

On the contrary the worst news is when a stocks decides to cut its dividend for one reason or another.

The reason I like buying dividend paying who continue to increase their dividend in a yearly basis, is that this has the power to compound over a long period of time.

So let us review some of my stocks holding who have decided to increase their dividend in March 2019:

Dividend Increase: 1

MAIN - they increase their dividend by a health 2.6% from $0.195 to $0.20 a month, this will add $2.40 in forward yearly dividend to my FI/Fund.

CUTS: 1 KHC - Cut its dividend from $0.63 to $0.40 ouch this one hurts a lot, a 36% cut on it's dividend. Not only did they misses EPS $0.84 by $0.10, they also had to do a massive write down of $15.4B. With this cut and with my recent Purchase where I added 25 more shares o…

March 2019 - Recent Purchase

Recent Purchase - March 2019
Early in the day, early in the month that is what this month theme will be. Early on the month I took advantage of market conditions to add more shares, to stocks that I already own and also added new stocks to the fund.
Like I say Mr. Market, sometimes presents a buy opportunity and you have to be ready to act upon market conditions without reacting to negative news. Since there will always be different news that can influence the markets, one needs to be ready to pounce on it (no pun intended) when there is an opportunity to buy.
Let us review what I add recently to my fund that one day will fuel my FI/FIRE journey. Without further is what I purchased:
