Recent Buy

On Wednesday October 14, 2015 I purchased 4 shares of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT) for $60.20 a share. The company suffered the worst percentage decline since 1988 and followed up with another decline today. I think the selloff is overdone and happy I was able to add some more shares at a lower cost basis. The company announced a 2 year $20 Billion stock buyback plan. I would obviously like to see a bigger dividend take precedence over a sizable buyback, but at a current $0.49/quarterly dividend this should add $7.84+ to my annual dividend total.

September 2015 Dividend Update

Retirement Plan Stock Image

September has ended and brought with it another month of dividends reinvested into many companies in my portfolio. I am sad to see the warm weather and summer ending again. Work and school seem to be going along pretty well which is good, but I do not like the cold and long winters here very much. Maybe dividends can one day help give a more favorable spot for the winter one day.
