O 2018 BUY number 1


Yes I bought O on this recent downturn. Usually i get left out of these downturns not this time though. O is going through a rough patch rougher than most but as a good quality stock it will prevail and so will I.

On 2/07/2018 I bought 18 shares of O yes i stretched it by 1 i like to buy as much as i can with my allotted money and i went a little over but thats ok because in the long run it will literally pay off. Including trading fees this cost me  $900.79. I was looking to keep it between $800-$900.00 but i stretched it a bit to buy that extra share.

Since O pays .219 a share this buy will bring an extra 3.94 a month or 47.30 a year. This brings my 12 month dividends to $5,339.79 every little bit helps. 

Have you had any buys lately?

January 18 Dividend income


They need to update monopoly with a larger amount lol. i will collect it and invest it. Hard to believe that we are in Feb already time flies when you are investing i do believe.

I did not sell anything in my portfolio this month but also did not add anything. I am saving up money hoping to add after the quarter is over as i replenish a little but into emergency funds but if  the market continues to drop that might be hard to resist we will see how it goes then take action from that at a later time.  If it continues to drop i might pull the trigger on some trades.
