What a nice dip on the stock markets this week. I like that S&P 500 sitting at 19xx a whole lot more than 21xx. Unfortunately I didn't have much capital to take advantage of this correction. So here it is, short and sweet: added to my position in Deere & Co (DE).
Here are rest of the buys I made in early August. I consider my portfolio rather diversified already; therefore I'm not anxiously adding new positions. However now I wanted one stock too much. So here we are: Gilead Sciences (GILD) is a newcomer in my portfolio, which now consists of 47 different stocks! Other buys add to my existing positions: Enbridge Inc (ENB.TO), Unilever NV (UN) and Main Street Capital (MAIN).
After change of a month I'm usually busy buying stocks. Beginning of August has been no exception. Here is the report of three first purchases. I have added to my position in Avista Corporation (AVA), Emerson Electric (EMR) and Textainer Group Holdings (TGH).
The month of July is over guys, and it's time to check how much dividends I received! July has been traditionally a slow month (July 2014 brought in just $56,39) for me, but now I was able to raise the bar quite a bit. Barely missed $100 mark, but percentage increase from last year was very decent, if I may say so.
