Stock Purchases January 1st Through January 15th

Therefore, when using their trailing 12 month dividend of $2.6492, this equated to a dividend yield of 3.44% at an $77.00 price point.  I did just as I thought I would, from reading that first article, where I said I would buy more in 2019 if it dropped.  Therefore, if prices hit at/around $75-$77 again, I will more than likely buy again in the future.

Here is proof of the investment purchase below:

In summary, I purchased 20 total shares on 1/3/19 at $77.00 with a $3.95 trading fee for a total cost of $1,543.95. The 20 shares added $52.98 to my forward dividend income projection.  In total, the VYM ETF produces over $205 going forward.

Stock Purchases Summary & Conclusion

I deployed a total of $2,549.78 in capital and added $83.78 in forward dividend income. This equates to an average yield of 3.29%.   However, this journey is far from over and gosh dammit, I need to lace up my boots and continue to move forward through 2019.  I need to be adding at least $175 per month, AGH!  Let’s go and get it everyone!

I’ll continue to say this, thus far, through January.  Turn that noise off everyone.  Stick to the strategy that has worked for you and review to see if there is anything that you need to see out there that may impact your strategy going forward.  You are in control and the emotion button is hard to turn off.  Persevere and stay consistent, if you can and are able to.  Lastly, my dividend portfolio has been updated and I am locked in and ready for further opportunities.

What other investments are you seeing out there?  What industry has been your preference as of late?  Anyone just stock piling capital and/or cash?  Thanks again everyone, and, as always, good luck and happy investing!
