Dividend Growth Stocks

Money in the Trough – Dividend Stocks I’ve Been Buying – November 2017

It’s almost Thanksgiving and I have lots of things for which to be thankful… I’m sure you do too.  Now that we’ve covered that, let’s talk about dividend stocks purchases.  😉

I haven’t been super active this November, but I have managed to add almost $230 in yearly forward dividend income so far this month.  I will certainly take that with some turkey and stuffing.

You’ll notice that I added a little bit more to my oil stocks.  This will be it for quite sometime as I now have a full position in oil/gas.

As you can see below, I haven’t been buying any super values this month.  However, I’m comfortable with the prices and the dividends I will receive from all of them.  Even when you can’t find fantastic deals on the perfect dividend stock, it’s still important to find the best deals you can and put that money to work.

So, here is where I’ve been putting my money to work this November.

New Buys - November 2017

My dividend portfolio has been updated with these buys.  I will keep this page updated with additional purchases made 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. Oil has been a really weird industry over the last handful of years.

    Not much in terms of returns but those dividend yields are pretty great.

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I’ve been contemplating adding to my XOM position. I think you’ll be happy with the price you paid for XOM. Best of luck with the new purchases. Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. I used to XOM for almost 2 years. There were no major movements. But, the dividend checks were awesome. Switched to VGENX.

      Hi DG! Those dividend checks are exactly what we are after! (although price appreciation is nice too) As a side note, VGENX two largest holdings are XOM and CVX.

      Thanks for dropping in and commenting!

  4. Pig –

    That’s an impressive mark for November, adding $230 is still a large figure to add, i.e. $2,760 in annualized terms that you’d be adding to the portfolio. Big companies you’ve invested in, at solid yields nonetheless. Congrats and hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving.

      Hi Lanny,

      Any new income is good income in my book. I think all the purchases above will perform well over the next few years.

      Thanks for dropping in!
