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.

Altria dividend increase

Altria stock announced an 8% dividend increase this past week. This is how we achieve FI when eventually we hit that crossover point.

As a DGI person these are these dividend increases are what we look for. This increase will be paid in Oct.

Altria regular returns money to its shareholders as this is the 50th increase in 47 years.

As I own 74.9 shares this will add 13.47 dollars a year to what I already own.

Just shy of 2 hours of minimum wage for doing nothing.

Have to love that.

God bless and have a great weekend
