I added positions in 5 companies in first week of April. I’d initiated a position in an ETF last month: 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 330 days of my freedom race and it was nice to have crossed $800 in passive income for the first time. Without further ado:
1) BCE Inc. (BCE): 10 positions at $45.01 on 4/07
2) HCP, Inc. (HCP): 10 positions at $32.77 on 4/04
3) Hospitality Properties Trust (HPT): 10 positions at $26.27 on 4/04
4) Verizon Communications (VZ): 10 positions at $53.55 on 4/06
5) STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG): 25 positions at $19.95 on 4/05
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’m planning to add new companies over next few weeks in my portfolio, 5 added last 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. 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.
