Recent purchase IV -November 2016

Recent purchase IV


As most of you already know I use Sharebuilder or capitalone investing if you prefer as my choice of broker. The reason been able to set aside as little amount I could afford for the week to invest in their weekly Sharebuilder plan. Given that fact I really enjoy months with five weeks to add to my investment, which means more opportunity to built dividend for the future and be able to reach ones goal that much faster.

So here is what I purchase last two weeks:

Sharebuilder
11/29/2016
WPC $100 1.62 shares @ $59.25
UNP $100 .95 shares @ $100.49

ROTH Sharebuilder
11/22/2016
STAG $50 1.99 shares @ $23.14

11/29/2016
$50 1.93 shares @ $23.84

IRA Sharebuilder
11/22/2016
UVE $50 1.84 shares @ $24.95
DGAS $50 1.77 shares @ $25.88
CSX $50 1.32 shares  $34.80

11/29/2016
UVE $50 1.84 shares @ $24.99
DGAS $50 1.72 shares @ $26.66
CSX $50 1.31 shares @ $34.90

Stay tune because I may still pull a trigger on a regular purchase due to fact that I forgot to change my weekly Sharebuilder plan. I am currently under medication which makes me drowsy, by the time I woke up yesterday it was 5 pm which is the deadline to setup weekly plans. Oh well I live with this purchases since I would eventually buy more and build up shares here.

The one expection here is WPC which just trigger a ash sale in my account. I was hoping to save on my 2016, since paying over 18,000 last year i need to start looking at ways to save on my tax. One way is to sell stocks at a loss which i hate to do since that's the time to buy more.

But in honor of been honest I decide last Friday to start selling stocks for loss to lower my tax here are some that I have sold so far and more to more next on the I am sure.

11/22/16
Sharebuilder
OHI 20.72 shares @ $28.91
HCP 22.40 shares @ $29.24
SUN 5.30 shares @ $21.78
GSK 4.88 shares @ $38.85
HCN 2.19 shares @ $62.55
WPC 10.66 shares @ $59.10
TUP 2.72 shares @ $59.22
HEP 1.4 shares @ $32.86
QCP 4.42 shares @ $14.57
WES .8 shares @ $ 56.63

With all this activity my forward yearly dividend is now at $934.99. Which means i have 1 month to now catch up on my goal to reach $1000 in forward dividend. Very achievable will see with all the holidays if i can come close.

Of course I will buy most of these stocks before year end after 30 days wash sale rule ends.

What do you think of recent moves?
What are you buy?
Are you selling?

Recent raises November 2016

Recent raises

After recent review it occurred to me it had been few Months since I last update raises receive via dividend increases by stocks I own in various portofolio. So lets get straight to the increase that have been announced in recent past.

CVX from $1.07 to $1.08 .9% increase ex-div November 16 payable December 12 
Small increase but better than nothing. CVX is my biggest holding, at this point would been better to stand pat with the dividend as oil price continue hovering below $60 dividend may not be sustainable long term. Put we cannot predict the future special with the incoming administration who will be oil friendly.

EMR from $0.475 to $0.48 1.1% increase Ex-div Nov 8 Payable Dec 9 3.71% yield 

EV from $0.265 to $0.28 5.7% increase Ex-div Oct 27 payable Nov 15 3.0% yield
I like this company a lot.  I will be adding more come next year. I do like to add their montly fund EVT as I owed it in the past and it did very well.

IP from $0.44 to $.04625 5.1% increase Ex-div Nov 10 payable Dec15 yield 4.05% 

MCD from $0.89 to $0.94 a 5.6% increase Ex-div Nov 29 payable Dec 15 3.26% yield
Jr owns this stock in his Loyal3 account. I may add it to my Loyal3 account soon.

OHI from $0.60 to $0.61 1.7% increase Ex-div Oct 27 payable Nov 15 7.31% yield
The yield is really sky rocket here I will wait till after new year to reevaluate 

UNP from $0.55 to $0.605 10.0% increase Ex-div Nov 28 payable Dec 29 2.45% yield
Really like recent rally but hopping for a pull back to add more

I missed this one on last update
WPC from $0.98 to $0.985 .5% increase Ex-div Sep 29 payable Oct14

Last but not least the great T.
T from $0.48 to $0.49 2.1% increase Ex-div Jan 6 payable Feb 1 5.23% yield.
Still time to add more shares specially with the recent pullback.

This adds $7.59 to my yearly dividend which now totals $1158.49

Have you receive recent raise?
What are you buying?
