Recent Stock Purchase V – March 2016

I initiated positions in 5 new companies in final week of March. I initiated a position in an ETF about 2 weeks back: S&P Metals and Mining (XME) as I do not own much of commodity or resources stocks and want to have some exposure to this beaten down sector. This sector looks quite promising and ready to take off in my opinion.

Below are the companies where I put my capital on towards my race for earning $3000 per month in 3000 days. Last month, I completed 300 days of my freedom race and it was nice to have crossed $600 in passive income as well for the first time. Without further ado:

1) Amgen Inc. (AMGN): 5 positions at $149.32 on 3/28
2) BCE Inc. (BCE): 5 positions at $45.75 on 3/30
3) CVS Health Corp. (CVS): 5 positions at $103.00 on 3/30
4) Hospitality Properties Trust (HPT): 10 positions at $25.33 on 3/28
5) Nike Inc. (NKE): 5 positions at $61.88 on 3/30

Due to addition of new companies over last several weeks and a reduction in one company: Keurig Green Mountain Inc. (GMCR), total number increased by 5 in my portfolio. I’ll update the portfolio soon, stay tuned!

I’m planning to add 10 new companies over next few weeks in my portfolio, 5 added this week. I’ll put the names of the companies for all DGI bloggers to vote and the one getting most votes get the honor of being part of my dividend engine. If you like a company that you want included in coming contest, please mention in below comments, I’ll consider to include. Thanks for your suggestions and I value the opinion of DGI bloggers and investors.

Full Disclosure: Long on above mentioned stocks except GMCR.

Do you like or considering to buy above companies.
