Dividend Growth Stocks

Money in the Trough – June Dividend Stock Purchases 2019

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

A new month and some new money to put to work.  We find ourselves in a bit of choppy market.  June opened with a nice recovery from the lows of May which were brought on by a looming China trade war.  As of this writing, we find the market applauding a trade war as it will most likely cause the Federal Reserve to lower interest rates.  Crazy times!

Anyway, through all that, I am still looking for the best dividend stocks values I can find.

So far, I’ve put a little over $900 to work with an average yield of 3.37%.  I’ve added roughly $30 of yearly forward dividend income already this month!

The $F, $KR, $SO and $PFE purchases were all made via DRIP.

My dividend portfolio has been updated with these buys.

All additional purchases made this June will be posted on this page.  I try to invest $2,500 – $4,000 every month. Last month things got a little crazy and came in at a little over $11,500!

What have you been buying this month?

I'm a dividend growth investor who is aiming to retire early in 4 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. Pig –

    Definitely an interesting bag of dividend paying companies you bought there; one’s that I don’t always see. Nice job adding a little bit to that forward income, as always!

      Thanks Lanny! Yeah, gotta mix it up sometimes and just go where the values lead. I have some extra room for financials in the portfolio.

  2. Recent purchases include AVGO, AGN, & HUM! Nice job!

      Well done! I tried to get some more AVGO, so far, my limit order hasn’t hit yet.

  3. Hi DP
    A very diversified group of added stocks, very interesting and several of them haven’t been on my radar. I have an eye on United Technologies, BP and Southern as well and I think I will also have a closer look at Bank of New York Melon.
    Keep it up, making your “dividend machine” stronger and stronger.
