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!

      Thank you! Hadn’t been sick like that in probably 10 years… it sucked.

  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.
