Once the cash was semi available i bought Sbux, and i bought 11 shares at $48.89 totaling $537.74.  I turned around a few minutes later and seen that it had dropped again so i bought 2 more shares at $48.85 for a total of $97.70 for a total of $635.44. This adds $18.72 dollars a year to my dividends.

Sell UVE and 2018 buy #6 T

As some have said its always hard to decision to sell but at least it makes it easier when they havent raised their dividend in 2 years and drop considerably in the summer due to hurricane season. That is one of the many reasons i decided to sell UVE it was a tough decision but with another company standing ready to buy i had to pull the trigger.

On May 15th 2018 the decision was made i waited for a littlew up tick in UVE price then pulled the trigger selling all 238.8732 which netted me $8,213.87 of cash.   I had made over $4,000.00 dollars off this investment but with upcoming Hurricane season coming since it is a insurance company with its main business in florida now was a good time to sell and when it drops when a hurricane is bearing down on florida in the future i will pick some more up.

Now onto the buy I had my eyes on ATT for awhile so it was a no brainer that this would be the company i put my money in. On May 17th i bought 250 Shares of T for a cost of $8,055.70.  This buy adds $125 a quarter to my dividends $500 a year to my dividends. this brings my total share count of T to 331.38.  This brings my 12 month future dividends to $6028.74.

2018 buy number 5 and dividend hike XOM

image Yes the big double a buy and dividend hike on the same day i knew  the hike was getting close but not sure when it would happen.

When my mom gave me her Morgan Stanley  account, it came with $2,000 dollars in  cash wich earns a paltry bit of interest. of course i missed the episode a few weeks ago where it dropped to $73. something. It may go up more it may drop more im not really trying to time the market but when i looked this morning and seen that XOM was $78.05 I had to pull that trigger.

A little about XOM.

Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM) is the largest of the vertically integrated oil majors, as well as the largest publicly-traded corporation in the world by revenue. It was created on November 30, 1999, by the merger of Exxon and Mobil. The company has several divisions and hundreds of affiliates, including Exxon Mobil, Exxon, Esso, and Mobil.

The firm generates the majority of its income from liquid and natural gas sales, with earnings of $19.7 billion in 2017. The geographical diversity of Exxon Mobil’s exploration and production (E&P) activities make it less vulnerable to the regional production uncertainties that plague the industry. The company is also an international leader in the downstream refining industry with over 5,000 owned/leased retail stations and 4.9 million barrels per day of refining capacity at the end of 2017.

Altria Group, Inc. is an American corporation and one of the world’s largest producers and marketers of tobacco, cigarettes and related products. It operates worldwide and is headquartered in Henrico County, Virginia.

With that being said i since it is down off its highs i decided to delve in and buy this stock again this is the second time i have bought this stock this year. To make this possible possible i sold to stocks an ETF called EFA for $838.20 a total of 11 shares, i was up about $110.00 and i also sold a preferred stock DDPRB i sold 5.5 shares of it for $563.98 not sure how much i was up on that. As part of the streamlining process of getting better stocks and building a good solid dividend income.

Now the buy, it was for 29 shares of MO for a total of $1,902.91 including commisions. this adds $20.3 a quarter to my dividends and $81.2  a year. This buy gives me 147 shares total of MO.  This buy brings my 12 month rolling prospective dividends to $5533.04. it becomes my third stock and also joins a mutual fund as stocks that pay over $400.00 a year.
