Recent Stock Purchase – May 2016

I added positions in 1 existing company in last week of May. After heavy selling over last few months, this is my first purchase in a while: a welcome change. Stock market is still at peak levels and that makes it difficult to find good values in such an environment. But, as they say, show must go on, rain or shine.

Below is the company where I put my capital on towards my race for earning $3000 per month in 3000 days. Last month, I completed 720 days of my freedom race and it was fantastic to have crossed $2000 in passive income. Without further ado:

1) Ventas Inc. (VTR): 5 positions at $66.56 on 5/30

Due to sale of many companies over last several weeks, total count of companies is down in my portfolio. Also, passive income will be down but start stabilizing in next few months.

Full Disclosure: Long on above mentioned stocks.

Recent Stock Purchase – March 2017

I added positions in 3 existing companies in March. I plan to keep adding these dividend growth stocks to grow my passive income to a point where all my expenses are covered by the income generated by them. However, I also made some sell this month as these companies did not suite my long term objectives.

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 66days of my freedom race and it was fantastic to have come close to $2000 in passive income, although not quite hitting it. Without further ado:

1) Chatham Lodging Trust (CLDT): 50 positions at $19.67 on 3/06
2) HCP, Inc. (HCP): 30 positions at $31.90 on 3/06
3) Verizon Communications (VZ): 25 positions at $50.05 on 3/06

As mentioned earlier, I completely sold 1 company: NOV and trimmed positions in MO. Due to addition of new companies over last several months and sale of some, total number of companies has gone down to 92 in my portfolio.

Recent Stock Purchase I – February 2017

I added positions in 1 existing company in fourth week of February. I plan to keep adding these dividend growth stocks to grow my passive dividend income to a point where all my expenses are covered by passive income generated by them, although, my pace is going to moderate due to stock market getting over-valued, making it difficult to find good values.

Below is the company where I put my capital on towards my race for earning $3000 per month in 3000 days. Last month, I completed 63days of my freedom race and it was fantastic to have come close to $2000 in passive income. Without further ado:

1) HCP, Inc. (HCP): 10 positions at $31.57 on 2/22

Due to addition of new companies over last several months and splits of HCPYUM and sale of APPL, total count is close to a century mark in my portfolio. However, I’ll be making sale of some companies this year and total count may be down.
