Recent Purchase - April 2019

April 2019 Update- Recent Purchases

Happy Tax day! We are half way through the month of April it is time to update my recent purchases made so far in April. It has definitely harder to take time and post an update of recent changes on my FI/FIRE fund lately. But since this is a holiday week in Massachusetts and Jr. is home today definitely was even harder.

This morning we woke up and watch the early start of the marathon and play a little bit with Lego's. He loves to create and design new concepts with his Lego's. He is not a big fan of buying a box of Lego's and built the box content, he prefers to design and create his own unique sets of toys. He is also at the phase where this changes daily, so he is always design a new set of toy concept. definitely has an engineering mindset.

This month has been busy from preparing my taxes and find best way to minimized my taxes and preparing for next year taxes has definitely taken allot of my time. As the end result I ended up opening a new IRA and ROTH IRA for both myself and Mrs. Dividend Pursuit. I had an old ROTH IRA with fidelity which I stopped contributed to year ago. In the process of trying to open an IRA with them, I could not remember most of my old information so I decided to go with Schwab for all four (4) of our accounts. 

Do you have a ROTH IRA you investing in? Do you use IRA's or prefer Investment accounts to reach FIRE?

I think will be focusing mostly on our ROTH's and contribute some to IRA's as we both using our employer match at work 401K and TSP for me.

Now without further ado let us review recent purchases made:

Investment account -Robinhood Account:

April 8, 2019
TD 5 shares @ $56.26 total $281.30

April 15, 2019
CL 2 shares @ $68.70 total $137.40

Schwab Dividend Pursuit

April 4, 2019
TD 17 shares @ $56.00 + Commission $4.95 total $956.95  

April 4, 2019 
T 31 shares @ $32.018 + commission $4.95 total $997.51

Mrs. Dividend Pursuit Schwab

April 4, 2019
CVS 18 shares @ $53.1865 + commission $4.95 total $962.31

ABBV 12 shares @ $82.6761 + Commission $4.95 total $997.06

With this purchased I added on my investment account $14.44 in forward divided income in my Investment account with Robinhood.

The reason I like Robinhood as you can see above, fees tend to eat away your hard earn money, instead with Robinhood all of it goes towards your investments.

On our investment account with added $200.92 in forward yearly dividend, which half will grow tax free when we start the withdraw in the future.

What do you think of recent purchases? What are you buying lately?

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.

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:

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…
