Recent buys (December 22 2016 - Feb 2 2017)

List of stocks sold and bought in the past 4-5 weeks. 

I still have the following stocks in my watchlist. What are you buying or on your watchlist?

CL, KO, K, DUL, NEE, WMT, CLX, CVS, PEP, BMY & QCOM


SOLD


Waddell & Reed Financial (WDR)

10 shares at $20.18 = $201.18

Sold out of a very small position. Asset Management company stocks are bleeding. Still holding on to TROW.


Total Sold = $201.18



BUYS



VF Corp (VFC)  
16 shares of VFC at an average price of $52.34 = $837.58
20 shares of VFC at an average price of $49.68 + $3.95 comm. = $997.63

Retail & Apparel Clothing stocks are getting hammered and add a mild winter to that (at-least in the Northeast). But VFC has some awesome & iconic brands and is a dividend aristocrat. So I'm buying up more. It's almost a full position now and may not add more.

L Brands
(LB)  
12 shares of LB at an average price of $60.31 = $723.82

Initiated a position in LB. Their 2 top brands are Victoria's Secret and Bath & Body Works. Most of their stores are in malls and mall traffic is declining, it is medium risk. MrFree@33 recommendation :)


Verizon (VZ)

2 shares of VZ at $48.12 = $96.24
20 share os VZ at $47.95 + $3.95 comm. = $962.95

Got into VZ a month back and it ran up all the way to $54 and came back to $48 again. Thrilled to add more of VZ. People are cutting cords but they still need Internet. Competition is crazy in the mobile business, but their quality is still unbeatable. This is a long term holding.


Dominion Resources (D)

3 shares of D at $71.32 = $213.96

I don't have many utility stocks, so initiated a small position. Will add more.


Medtronic
(MDT) 
4 shares of MDT at an average price of $69.92 = $279.68

Target (TGT)
 
6 shares of TGT at an average price of $67.44 = $404.67

National Grid (NGG) 

2 share of NGG at an average price of $57.23 = $114.47

Astrazeneca (AZN) 


2 shares of AZN at an average price of $27.06 = $54.11

 
Total Investments =  $4685.11

2016 Year in review and looking forward to 2017

Happy New Year!

2016 was very good. Here are some numbers:

Dividends for 2016 were $3796.20. That number is great and compared to 2015, this is huge.



Total Investments for 2016 were around $47000. I was fortunate enough to have invested a good amount last year, but probably not as much this year.

2017

I never set any hard goals. Would be nice to get $4000-$4500 in annual dividends and at-least $20000 in stock investments. Pretty sure I won't be investing that much this year. Wish you all an awesome 2017!
