Recent Purchase V July 2018

Recent Purchase V

As the Market closed on Monday I pull the trigger on another stocks I long coveted to own. I last owned this stock in 2006-2007 before it filled for bankruptcy and it has now emerge as strong competitor in the industry. There other two (2) stock I purchase is well respected and has continually increase dividend to keep up with inflation.

After recent sell-off in Capital One Investing, I moved the capital to Robin Hood (RB) and I have taken the opportunity to both diversify and buy strong long term stocks to hold for as long as they keep raising their dividend.

So without further ado...here is what I purchased:
July 23, 2018
FAST 5 Shares @ $57.96 Total $289.82
CVS 6 Shares @ $66.36 Total $398.16
DAL 7 Shares @ $52.25 Total $365.75

July 26, 2018
EPR 6 Shares @ $66.52 Total $399.12
O 7 Shares @ $55.89 Total $391.22
HEP 10 Shares @ $31.66 Total $316.59
PAA 10 Shares @ $24.67 Total $246.70
AGNC 10 Shares @ $19.42 Total 194.20


Wow, I like this bunch a lot, for me it has been a long time coming for me to own DAL again. I last sold all my share in 2007 right before they filled for bankruptcy. Consistent dividend increase has convince me. It is also my first airline stocks, there are others I like a lot in the industry however the dividend policy has not been a good one so far.

Recent Sell off July

Recent Sell-off on capital one investing

Another week has started and no doubt it was time to sell more shares and move the capital to Robin Hood (RH). so this week I started the sell off with two of my favorites. I hope to buy them early next month hopefully as Mr. Market always throws us a curve ball unexpectedly due to market conditions and other buy opportunities that may arise.

So without further ado... here is what i sold this week so far:

July 23, 2018
MAIN 24.2672 Shares @ $39.37 Total $955.40 as the $6.95 fee will be return tomorrow.

July 24, 2018
LTC 17.2765 Shares @ $40.94 Total $707.21

This will almost complete my sell and transfer strategy to RH from Sharebuilder. It is almost surreal that I am leaving Sharebuilder. I have been using the platform since 2002/2003. However, the fees I will be saving is almost worth the extra hassle for now.

What are you thoughts on this move? What are you Buy/sell?

July 2018 IV Purchase

July 2018 IV Purchase

July has surely been another busy month, we are enjoy the good weather finally in the northeast, summer vacation have been filled with trips to the beach, parks and visiting families. I love the summer months in New England. There are so many activities to do and enjoy, that it seems there are not enough time to enjoy it all before the football season and the winter gets here.

With that been said lets review what else I purchase in the month of July to add to my fund of dividend paying stocks which will fund my early retirement and support my family in the near future.

without further ado....here is what I purchased
July 19, 2018
COP 5 Shares @ $69.73 Total $348.65
CMI 2 Shares @ $138.08 Total $276.16
CAT 2 Shares @ $139.59 Total $279.18
F 20 Shares @ $10.82 Total $216.30

WOW, another fantastic week! I added few more stalwarts stocks to mine collection. They will be the cornerstone of my fund that will fuel my FIRE. 

With this new purchase I added in forward dividend in each of this stock in the amount of COP $5.70; CMI $9.12; CAT $6.88; F $12.00.

I will keep collecting stocks that continue to pay and raise their dividend Year-After-Year (YAY). What are you buying? What is on the horizon you are contemplating purchasing? What do you think of recent purchases?

Recent Sell on Capital One Investing

Recent Sell

I prefer to buy and hold for as long as the stock is producing regular increase dividend. However, with the Capital One Investing (Sharebuilder) selling all their assets to E*Trade, it was time to take advantage of free trades and move all my assets to Robinhood platform (RH).

RH will provide free trades, so I will be saving on fees and instead invested those fees on stable longer term stocks who provide steady increase dividend. This is the Dividend Pursuit is all about adding and collect dividend paying stocks to fuel my journey to financial freedom.

so without further ado....here is what I sold recently and started moving the capital to RH:

July 17, 2018
EPR 3.7002 Shares @ $65.67 Total 236.03 +$6.95 refunded. All fees were refunded.
O 5 Shares @ $54.65 Total $314.57 + $6.95 fee

July 18, 2018
QCOM 10.3345 Shares @ $58.65 Total $599.18 + $6.95 Fee

All proceeds have been moved to RH to buy new stocks at this point. I will eventually buy the stocks I sold. But not at the moment, as Mr. Market is presenting some other better evaluation and opportunity.

What do you think of new strategy? What are you buying? do you sell when metrics do not make sense or do you tend to hold for long term?

2018 Goal Update

2018 Goals! Update

Below is what I wrote back at the beginning of the month:

Anyone can tell you to be successful you have to have a long term goals as well as short term goals. Short term goals should be attainable. Goals that are short term nature and attainable helps fuel one desires to attain other goals including long term goals which may take years to achieve. However, whenever you achieve a short term goals this really helps motivate you to try to achieve your long term goals.

It’s with this type of mentality that I will set up my 2018 goals. Everyone knows our long term goals is to be able to achieve financial independence and early retirement. How about short term goals. This in my opinion tend to be hard to break down as everyone has different desires and train of thoughts when it comes to narrowing goals that can be both achievable and fuel your progress to achieve the ultimate goals. So here is my Goals for this year:

          1. Invest $3000 in new capital this year.   Accomplish
          2. Save for a down payment for a new house.  New Home purchase June 2018
          3. Updated a new rental unit (potentially raise rental on next tenant)  We raised 2 of our tenants monthly rent
          4. Raise rental on Two tenants. March 2018
          5. Buy 10 Stocks this year and continue to add shares to initial position. Added 20 new Stocks
          6. Buy 6 Monthly paying dividend stocks.  5 currently owned
          7. Buy Dividend Aristocrats Stocks.  PG, T, LEG
          8. Continue to build Emergency Cash to 9 months. in Progress

The goals above are all achievable and should propel my future growth towards early retirement. As you can see real estate will be part of my planning. We currently own a multi-family. We are actively looking and saving for a new property. Mrs. Dividend Pursuit we love to get a single family with an in-law setup for her parents. Her father is getting closer to retirement and hopefully we can help them when they reach their retirement milestone.

What are you priorities and goals for 2018?
It seems that I have reach most of the milestone as we reach halfway point of the year. What are we looking forward to for the rest of the year.

1. Continue to make at least 1 purchase a month for the rest of the year.
2. Move all holdings to Robinhood.
3. Save for a new car
4. Take 1 international travel. We already took one back in March so this will be an additional one.

This shows me they are profitable, specially since they have paid dividend for over 60 years...WOW, my mother was not even born yet. Their product is mostly necessary to actually enjoy life to the fullest as they are product that improve quality of life, in this beautiful planet of our Earth.

We continue to deploy fresh capital and we also been moving capital invested in Sharebuilder (Capital One Investing) to Robinhood platform at the same time. All the transaction was on Robinhood platform.

Without further ado....here what I have recently buy on Robinhood platform:

July 2, 2018

As you can see it has been a really busy month, Deploying new capital and selling assets on Capital One and buy new assets on Robinhood platform. I really enjoy buy stocks. I am learning new things and I am now focus on buy in a diversify manner with some limitations on Robinhood platform. 

As Mr. Market change with daily market gyrations, I was present with new opportunity to add some stocks that were down and others which I just wish to own at even a higher price where I would like to buy them.

July 2018 Purchase & Sell

Purchases & Sells from Capital One Investing

As we start the second half of 2018, a new month, I took the apportunity to change few things. Althought, I believe this was started last month, with the change from Capitalone Investing to Robinhood platform. the moves has some benefits and some drawbacks. However, the benefits from no transaction cost should more than compensate for the drawback, in my view are no possibility to invest base on dollar amount. Instead I will be buy number of shares range from 1 to 10 at times or even 20 as was the case with my initial purchase of GE purchase.

So without further ado.... here are some of the activities that have taken placed, first update from my Capitaone Investing account.
July 3, 2018 Purchase on Sharebuilder (Capitalone Investing)
MAIN 3.81 Shares @ $38.28 + $3.95 commission = $150.00

Sells July 5, 2018
DLR 3.1017 Shares @ $114.39, all commission of $6.95 was refunded due to Capital One sells the account to E-Trade.
WPC 7.2896 Shares @ $66.99

July 12, 2018
VTR 5.1596 Shares @ $58.41
VOD 10 Shares @ $24.29
BNS 10.0052 @ $56.85

Standby there will be more sales from now until August 8, 2018. This is the deadline impose by capital One Investing to sell partial sale before the transfer to E-Trade occurs. I may or may not take advantage of the refund on commission and move all my account to Robinhood.

What do you think of this recent strategy? I do believe I will incur some capital gains in the process but it will be easier to manage my account from one broker. Of course I will be buy most of the holding I am selling on Capital One, on Robinhood eventually. But this will also give me the opportunity to buy other bargains stock out there.

What do you think of recent buy and sell?

June 2018 dividend payout

June 2018 dividend payout

Wow another month has gone by. However, every investor cherishes this time of the month. It gives us time to stop and count our divided payout for the previous month.

So last month was another milestone for sure for my family. We closed in a new home on June 25, 2018. It is a beautiful six (6) year old house with plenty of space for the three (3) of us to enjoy with extended family who visit often. We really enjoy having family around. That is the reason why I invest in the first place, to be able to find more time with them eventually.

So without further ado....here who pay me last month

MAIN $3.17
QCOM $4.85
LTC         $3.27
STAG $4.96
PBA $0.44
O          $1.29
EPR.        $1.32
Main $5.58
DLR $3.1


Total $27.98

So last month I received a total of $27.98 in form of dividend payout. We also received $287.00 in cash flow from our rental units for a total of $314.98.

How did you do last month? Who pay you dividend last month?

July 2018 watch list

July 2018 watch list

It sure was a busy month last month. It is now time to plan ahead on what I may potentially buy and put them on my watch list for July 2018. There are some stocks who are little bit deafen down who I surely wish I own, they will be on my watch list if opportunity presents it self. Of course any single stocks on potential watch list does not mean I may purchase them as Mr. Market can always throw us a curve ball and we will need to adjust for that. 

But here is what I plan to buy or potentially buy if things go my way this month:
REIT has rebound a little bit but there are still opportunity in some areas for that I will look to purchase MAIN, HCP, STAG, O and EPR.

In the utilities sector I may initiate positions in SO, D, ED and NGG. Health sector looks attractive for long term so I may initiate positions in JNJ, BMY, ABT, ABBV, PFE and GSK.

Staples and other sectors that I may consider for this month are KO, GIS, K, PG, DPS or KDP, CMI, TD, RY, XOM, ABM, VZ, BP, T, LTC, SBUX and CM.

This does not mean I will buy every single stocks listed here, but it is a good start where I will be looking to add shares or start a position.

What are you look at buying this month. Are you take advantages of dips in the market to add or start a position?

June 2018 VI Purchase

June VI Purchase


With the month closing, I decide to pull the trigger on one more purchase. It surely has been a busy month. There are some bargains, but there are also shares I initiated a position but will continue to built on. Hopefully I can also average down as well on some position as time goes on. 

So without any further ado... here is what I purchase, this time I went back to Robin hood platform to add new positions.


June 29, 2018

T 6 Shares @ $32.15 Total = $192.90
DPS 2 Shares @ $121.07 Total = $242.14
DIS 2 Shares @ $105.04 Total = $210.08

Wow, I continue to add moth of companies to my fund to achieve early retirement sooner rather than later. Consistently buy in the market regardless of the market condition has a power full impact down the line for sure. I may even make few more purchase in July before I slow down for sure.

What do you think of recent purchases? What have you being buying lately?
