3 Recent Buys - CVS, TGT, UNA

So, I continued on the buying front on the second half of April. I thought that I should report these buys before rather interesting dividend summary from April. Actually in my last purchase post there were CVS Health Corporation (CVS) and Unilever NV (UNA.AS). So is this a mistake you might ask. Well, it is not. CVS and UNA.AS are two my favorite stocks this year, and I would guess that they will see the biggest amounts of fresh capital in my portfolio. Alongside Welltower Inc (HCN), which is a new position for me this year, and possible other new position. Also Target Corporation (TGT) was on my shopping list at this time.

Unilever just announced amazing 12% dividend increase, and I decided to celebrate that announcement by buying two more shares before ex-dividend date. In case of CVS I also managed to scoop up a tiny piece before ex-date. TGT has a very attractive valuation and yield right now. I guess many investors believe in retail's death. I still refuse to do that, but of course it can turn out to be a mistake. Anyways, in the meantime I collect the dividend and hope to see an increase announcement in June.

Thanks for reading. My Portfolio page has been updated to reflect these trades.

Disclosure: Long CVS, HCN, TGT, UNA.AS
