Recent Stock Purchase II – September 2015

Market has been volatile last several weeks, providing great buying opportunities to a patient investor. I invested in 7 companies in 2nd week of September. I plan to use these dividend growth stocks to fuel my passive dividend income in the coming weeks and months. Portfolio shows the latest positions at the end of August.

Below are the companies that I put my capital on towards my race for earning $3000 per month in 3000 days. Last month, I completed 120 days of my race and this month, I’ll be completing 150 days of race this month. Without further ado:

1) BP plc (BP): 10 positions at $31.93 on 9/09: $319.30
2) Main Street Capital Corp. (MAIN): 10 positions at $28.50 on 9/09: $285.00
3) Altria Group, Inc. (MO): 10 positions at $53.98 on 9/09: $539.80
4) Royal Dutch Shell plc (RDS B): 10 positions at $50.50 on 9/19: $505.00
5) Sr. Housing Properties Trust (SNH): 25 positions at $15.46 on 9/09: $386.50
6) STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG): 15 positions at $16.90 on 9/09: $253.50
7) Exxon Mobile (XOM): 5 positions at $73.00 on 9/09: $365.00

Total Investments: $2,654.10

Above investments will help towards achieving my goal. Now, I’ve 52 wonderful companies in my portfolio, achieving my initial goal to own 50 companies so that I’m diversified across various sectors and not putting all eggs in one basket.

The beauty of growing dividends is that they will be working for me to earn more dividends, setting off a compounding engine and snowball. That will propel me towards the cherished land of financial independence.

Full Disclosure: Long on above mentioned stocks.

Thanks for reading.

Do you like my purchases. Own any of these stocks.

  1. As a long term investments, you made solid buys. Congrats on owning 52 businesses. It’d be a much safer portfolio to have it all spread out. I’ve also have been trying to thin out my investments. If one or two companies stop or decrease paying dividends, it won’t be the end of the world.

    Cheers!

    • Hi Vivianne,

      Appreciate liking my buys and for your warm words. Definitely, not putting all eggs is a basket, is a time-honored dictum. You got my friend! If one or two companies stop paying or even go down to $0 value, it will be only 2% hit for each, and that will be more than compensated by 8-10% earnings growth.

      Thanks for stopping by and comments.

  2. Nice pickups. That’s ridiculous, 7 stocks in one day. That’s some nice diversification and some serious dividend income right there. I own 2 of them, BP and Shell, and would love to pick up a third in MO. Talk about taking advantage of the downturn!

    Have a great Sunday.

    • Hi Bert,

      7 buys is definitely a great feat for me 🙂 BP and RDS.B are fantastic companies that are temporarily hit by sliding oil prices. In general energy sector is hit very hard and the value part of myself just come out. Buy companies when everyone is running away, and so, I think it is a great time to buy for a long-term growth investor.

      Thanks for commenting and stopping by this corner of the world!

  3. R2R,
    I just found your Blog and I’m really excited! $3000 per month in 3000 days! What an insane goal, but seeing your massive cash deployment every week now, I think you’ll get there a lot faster. And I really love your stock selections – you even got some BDCs – very rare in the DGI community.
    Nearly all stocks of your portfolio are on my watchlist and I already own some of the same companies. Nice!
    Cheers and good luck to you!

    • Hi DivRider,

      My goal is $3K in 3K days! Its as simple as that. I think that $3K will afford some sort of lifestyle where most of the folks can at-least survive. It is definitely a long race and I need to run it consistently. My initial goal is to achieve $1K in passive income in 1000 days. If I can achieve this initial goal, it will be a big booster for second goal of $2K in 2K and final stretch of $3K in 3K.

      Glad to know that we are shareholders in many of the same companies. I’ve got some BDCs from diversification purpose, more diverse sectors I own, better it is, as risks are spread out across variety of sectors and assets.

      Thanks a lot for commenting and best of luck in your journey!

  4. Keep this goal alive. You are doing an awesome job buying some great companies sporting some pretty attractive current yield. I see energy is not scaring you off. Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi DH,

      Appreciate the kind words and warm feelings. I’m trying my best to buy some of the quality companies at a fair price and energy companies are just that. I see no reason to get scared of dropping prices and in fact, I consider it a buying opportunity, although, it is tough to watch the drop in portfolio value. Only reason I would not be interested in energy or any companies would be if their earnings get impaired for a good reason. In long term, even, these prices will be just blips on a graph that is rising in value.

      Thanks much for commenting and stopping by!
