Update & New Purchase January

Update & New Purchase

The government shutdown has finally come to an end for now until February 15, 2019. As an exempt employee, I had to work throughout the shutdown as I perform essential work.

However, the shutdown did affect my purchasing routine. I had to keep an eye on our savings in case it lasted longer. Honestly I was thinking it would go on for another 5 weeks. 

However, I an glad it is over for now and I can received some pay eventually to catch up and invest, save and contribute to my Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) again. I have never talk about my TSP as it is not part of my planning at this junction in my asset accumulation stage. 

But it is a big part of my retirement package. Come to think about it, it may be a reason why I have hesitated to leave my job for now. 

But this year will finally be the year I will need to re-evaluate what is most import things in life and see where this job fits in my equation. I had a lot of time to think about this over the last 35 days of the shutdown.

Today I finally was able to confirm I will be paid my first check from January 11, 2019 tomorrow. So I was able to quickly add more funds to my Robin hood account and take advantage of some stocks I long convected on my portfolio. 

So without further ado... here is what I purchase today right before the market closed:

January 29, 2019

CFG 3 shares @ $35.09 total $105.27
EPD 6 shares @ $27.97 for total $167.82
CFG 1 share @ 34.04

Citizens Financial Group (CFG) is one of my favorite regional bank and it has aggressively continue to grow its dividend. With this purchase I added $5.12 in yearly dividend to my fund.

Enterprise Product Partners (EPD) engages is production and trade of natural gas and petrochemicals. It just recently increase its dividend by .6% going Ex-dividend on January 30, 2019. With this purchase I added $10.44 in forward yearly dividend to my fund.

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.
