Recent Stock Purchase II – January 2016

I added positions in 3 existing companies second week of January. Market has been on a boil lately and offering numerous opportunities to a patient investor. Now that crude oil is trading below $30 per barrel, a decade low, it looks like that oil can’t seem to find a bottom and energy companies by extension. It is quite possible that dividends could be cut in near future if oil prices do not recover and a new round of down slide in energy stocks could ensure. As a result, I’m not adding any more capital in energy companies, unless, prices go real crazy.

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 240 days of my freedom race and it was great to have crossed $400 in passive income again in Dec. It’ll be awesome when $500 barrier is breached 🙂 Without further ado:

1) HCP, Inc. (HCP): 10 positions at $36.86 on 1/12
2) Johnson & Johnson (JNJ): 5 positions at $97.99 on 1/12
3) Kraft Heinz Co. (KHC): 5 positions at $68.99 on 1/15
4) Pfizer Inc. (PFE): 10 positions at $31.37 on 1/12

Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR) is being acquired by JAB Holding for $92/share and it was almost a 2-bagger for me. Not happy to see it go, but, do not mind seeing the capital gain 🙂 I’ll also need to replace it with other company as well. I updated my Portfolio recently and it shows all my latest positions.

Full Disclosure: Long on above mentioned stocks.

Do you like any of these recent buys? Considering to add them in near future.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Can never complain about a 2 bagger. Congrats on that GMCR buyout. I know what you mean about seeing a company go after holding it for some time. I had BUD for years before it was bought out. It was a great company, stock and dividend payer. Anyway, congrats on your new buys. 2016 should offer you many great buys if these first weeks are any indication. All good buys. I can get behind each of them. No Canadian banks for you? Many divvy bloggers, myself included have been buying names like TD, BNS, RY and more.

    • Hi DH, Yeah, no complaints about 2-bagger on GMCR 🙂 BUD is an excellent company with close to 3% yield, however, I find market over-valued and being cautious in buying these marquee companies. Many of them are at multi-year high and at some point will revert back to average P/E, providing patient investor a good entry point. I’ve been buying both TD and BNS, yielding close to 5%, what a deal: will be adding in near future. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your perspective.
