Recent Purchase V - July 2016

Recent Purchase:


With the country in full political mode with the two recent political conventions, one can even debate which party will be better for DGI community or even for investors alike.

However one has to see what are your goal and follow those goals no matter what the outcome is. Since neither party will control you and your desire goals or be able to reach them for you.

It is with that view point that for me going forward I will simplify how a track my goals and outcome.
Since we are half way through the year I will be focus mostly on my individual Account with Sharebuilder as it will be my main source of income in retirement. Loayl3 as much as I like it has limited choices which I will transfer all proceeds for my sale there at month end to a newly form custodian account for Divident Pursuit Jr. He is three years old now and a good opportunity to get him started. I will try to invest $1000 a year going forward. I will eventually set those goals in stone how I will fund his account either early in the year or late or even monthly.

My two sharebuilder IRA and Roth will continue to operate however I will not track it since early withdrawn penalty will not favor me or my desire goals.

So next month I will stop adding or tracking its performance as a whole and separate it from individual account, I will however track it in house every few months to see progress been made.

So without further ado here is most recent purchase made:

Sharebuilder 
July 26, 2016
PAYX $180 2.89 shares @ $60.80
OHI $250 7.09 shares @ $34.69
CINR $200 6.08 shares @ $32.23

ROTH
July 26, 2016
EV $50 1.23 shares @ $37.20
NNN $50 .88 shares @ $51.75
TOO $50 8.24 shares @ $5.59
STAG $50 1.85 shares @ $24.80

IRA 
July 26, 2016
KNOP $70 3.39 shares @ $19.46

This will add $43.68 to my yearly dividend which end the half way point of the year at $854.69

This will be a good starting point to build on the future.

What do you think of recent purchases?

What are you being this month and next month?

Are you on the sidelines waiting for a pullback?

Recent Purchase IV - July 2016

Recent Purchase PG, SIR, CL, CLX, GOV and FAST

After take a short vacation, we got home in time yesterday to setup my weekly purchase on sharebuilder account.

I really did not wanted to add any new stocks to my individual sharebuilder account, as I feel it has reach a point where I need to start increasing amount of shares own versus add new stocks to track. But both my ROTH and IRA account are in their imphancy hence there is where value and growth stocks will be placed going forward. I will however be trying to put more emphasis on the ROTH account for tax reason going forward.

So here are today purchases for July 19, 206

Sharebuilder accounts
PG $200 2.28 shares @ $85.71

ROTH IRA 
FAST $50 1.08 shares @ $42.58
CLX $50 .33 shares @ $136.11
CL $50  .62 shares @ $74.21

IRA
GOV $40 1.54 shares @ $23.38
SIR $30 .94 shares @ $27.66

This will add $13.99 to my forward yearly dividend which now totals $811.01 and passes my first years goal within the first half of the year.

At this point I could possibly start hoarding cash to wait for a crash which I hope comes by year end.
But them again I am just starting so why not keep at it and keep adding shares to this wonderful companies which will one day cover all my expenses and allowed me to retire early.

Thanks for reading.

Recent Raises updates July 2016

Raises updates

Everyone on the planet loves to receive a raise here and there just to maybe keep up with inflation. The cost of living has been on a rise in the last 15 years at an increditable pace. As a government employee we received maybe two or three raises that I can remember in the last eight to nine years. I am not the one to complain, however one just need to keep up with the inflation to just make it end meet or support a family.

This is one reason I love the aspect of investing in dividend growth stocks. They at least try to keep up with inflation and the power of compounding takes over like a snow ball coming down a mountain. I like that aspect specially after return home from a mini vacation in the mountains of Vermont (Jay Peak area), and visiting the old site of Old Man On the Mountain.

But without any hesitation here are some recent raises that I just realized plugging in new purchases in the last few weeks, since I been mostly vacationing for the summer here and there. For the month of July and August, I will be working a total of maybe 27 days instead of the average 45 days, will definetelly take that a small sample of early retirement life indeed.

  Raises
MDT  from .37 to .43 a whopping 13.16%  raise with current price the yield is just below 2% which is fine because it's been on a tear recently, but I do hope for a pull back since I need to add more shares here in September I hope.

PAYX from .42 to .46 another monster raise of 9.5% the stocks now yields around 3.02% the amazing think I still have opportunity to add shares here, as I believe the stocks worth around $72. Ex-div is July 28 and payable August 28

OHI from .58 to .60 a modest 3.4% increase which keeps inflation at bay however the forward yield is currently over 7.3%. 
Also goes Ex-div July 28 and payable August 15 a good chance I will add shares at current yield price.

CMI from .975 to 1.025 a modest 5.1% increase I will take it. Currently yields 3.45% above inflation that is how we like it to be. CMI goes Ex-Div August 18, and payable September 1 which will definetelly put me above $100 without buy any additional shares on companies who pays us in September, very nice indeed.

It's great when you just woke up and your money just works harder than you to return value and increase in return in the form of dividend increases. Nothing like passive income to make you smile.

These increase have added $4.08 to my yearly dividend which now total $797.02 in forward yearly dividend.

How about you have you received increase lately?

Who has given you increases?
