Hi folks. Here are my buys from late January. Traditionally I don't have too much cash available at this time of a month, so 3 mini buys I could say. I have added more shares to my existing positions in Archer Daniels Midland Co. (ADM), Eversource Energy (ES) and Unilever N.V. (UNA.AS). All right, let's see the details:
Starting the new year with full rumble! Well, actually I added to my Cisco Systems Inc (CSCO) position on the last trading day of 2016, but rest of these transactions are from the first days of 2017. Most significant trades at this time period: opened new position Welltower Inc (HCN) and closed out position Deere & Co (DE).
Happy New Year 2017! The year 2016 is now officially over and out, but let's take a look back how it actually went. Holy Cow, I really made a bunch of purchases during the year, but also quite a few sale transactions. It looks like I closed out 6 positions for one reason or another. December 2015 was a record month with $157.40 income. Since then I have terminated positions in Avista Corp (AVA), Chevron Corp (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP) and Textainer Group Holdings (TGH). I would say these were from medium to high yielding stocks, so there was definitely a gap to be filled. OK, good news is that I managed to collect more this December, but the bad news is that I missed my yearly goal $3,200. Here is the comparison table of December 2015 and 2016 dividends:
