Dividend Growth Stocks

Money in the Trough – February Dividend Stock Purchases – 2019

What an awful month.  Well, not for the markets (so far at least), but for being sick!  I came down with a nasty virus (or multi-day food poising… if that’s a thing) that kept me in bed or the bathroom for 2 days.  Fortunately, I’m finally back to life and working again!

It’s interesting on the timing of my sickness.  This time last year my wife was going in for a surgery that turned out to be the most stressful time of our lives.  I managed to stay well in the hospital for almost 3 weeks working on very little sleep, nutrition and super amounts of stress.  I also discovered I like to stress buy dividend stocks… February 2018 was a HUGE month and it’s interesting for me to look back and see what I was buying then.

Anyway, here is what I’ve been buying this month.  So far this month, I’ve put a little over $950 to work with an average yield of 3.2%.  Not too bad for only  a week into the month where I’ve only made one manual purchase!

Obviously, a lot of the buys were made via DRIP this month.  The $T, $CVS and $GIS purchases were all made via DRIP.

New Buys - February 2019

My dividend portfolio has been updated with these buys.

All additional purchases made this February will be posted on this page.  I try to invest $2,500 – $4,000 every month, though last month totaled in at almost $6,000!

What have you been buying this month?

I'm a dividend growth investor who is aiming to retire early in 6 years at the age of 45. My goal is to live off the income my dividend portfolio and rental property produce exclusively and leave the corporate rat race. I hope you will join me in this journey!


  1. Nice to see the buying continue even after your sickness dividends were still on your mind. Like the T buys and interesting to see the GIS pick ups. Seems like many in the DGI community forgot about that name once T, MO, ABBV and others started yielding 6%+. Keep stacking those divs.

    • Always have dividends on my mind 😉 Great to hear from you and thanks for dropping in!
