Recent Buy

I have not been doing much recently except trading a few options here and there. I was looking to get back into regularly buying solid stocks. I realized the opportunity to regularly accumulate more shares of Disney stock than what I already held in an ESPP since the end of 2009, but has now been transferred into a DSPP. The result of that will be monthly contributions of DIS stock which I received in both February and March 2015. Imagine if I was accumulating these shares for the last 5+ years from the cheap prices of those 2008 days. Here are the results of my investments:

Transactions show on March 2, 2015 I bought 1.4132 shares of The Walt Disney Company (DIS) at $105.41 per share.

Transactions show on March 23, 2015 I will have bought 1.4043 shares of The Walt Disney Company (DIS) at $106.08 per share.

Even though these prices are maybe 5 times what I have paid in the past I feel this is a great company for the long term. The annual dividend is not my favorite aspect, but the company just keeps on moving higher. I would like to acquire as many shares as I can and then if a split happens down the road and they move higher again I'll be a very happy shareholder. People will continue watching and buying their movies, merchandise, theme park tickets, and all the different wide range of activities their business participates in. Not even the recent downgrade by an analyst seems to stop the momentum.

What do you think about Disney at these price levels? Thanks for reading.

February 2015 Dividend Update

Now that we have 2 months of 2015 in the books it is time to update my dividends for February 2015. This is one of the favorite aspects for many of us when we can tally up our passive income. When it grows consistently we know we are going in the right direction month after month and year from year. Each day I like to believe the light of covering expenses with passive income is getting closer. I would definitely much rather work a job I enjoy than have to settle for ones I don’t exactly desire one day. I would like to thank everyone for their comments and support as you share your journeys and insights.
