Recent Buy – EPR, STWD

I’m looking for companies that are fairly valued, have a decent dividend yield(3% to 6%) and have a fairly long history of paying dividends consistently for 10 years or more. However, there could be some cases for exceptionally good company or a strategic buy for a very long term.

Here are the 2 buys in second week of Aug, 2016:

1) EPR Properties (EPR)
Reits have become expensive in general but I still find there is some value there, although, there could be significant pull back in case Fed ticks the rate up. So, this is a risky bet that I’m taking. I added positions in EPR on 8/11 at $80.00. It’ll add $19.20 of passive dividend income on an annual basis.

2) Starwood Property Trust, Inc. (STWD)
As I mentioned that reit segment is getting overheated and this has a higher risk to significant correction as well. But, as a long-term investor, this could be good addition to the portfolio. I bought 20 positions in STWD at $22.30 on 8/11 and it’ll add $38.20 of passive income on an annual basis.

Recent Buy – BNS, GE, COP

I’m looking for companies that are fairly valued, have a decent dividend yield(3% to 6%) and have a fairly long history of paying dividends consistently for 10 years or more. However, there could be some cases for exceptionally good company or a strategic buy for a very long term.

Although, it is getting difficult to find companies at fair valuation, I still pulled triggered on following companies in first week of Aug, 2016:

1) Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS)
This is my 10th buy of BNS this year, a marathon buying spree indeed! It only shows how much I value it over the rest of all of my companies. I added 10 positions in BNS on 8/05 at $50.26. It’ll add $28.80 of passive dividend income on an annual basis.

2) General Electric Co. (GE)
I recently added GE and got another 10 positions in GE at $31.26 on 8/05 and it’ll add $9.20 of passive income on an annual basis.

3) ConocoPhillips (COP)
Carnage in oil sector was brutal however, it has drastically recovered over last several weeks. COP had significantly cut its dividend in this tumult. There are still risks in this sector, but, I think that COP provides greater rewards in future. To that end, I bought 5 positions in COP on 8/05 at $40.53 in my taxable account. It will add $5.00 of passive income on an annual basis that I do not need to work for.

Monthly Dividend Income – July 2016

Its time for me to post dividend income earned from my portfolios: DRIP, HID, & RothI enjoy sharing them as these passive dividend income provides me great inspiration and encouragement to keep chugging along and hopefully to the readers.

I scored seven+ hundred in total passive dividend Income: $706.00 to be precise. Though, it was little less than April quarter due to GSK having a special dividend last time around but still out of park as compared to last July, over 120% higher. That’s awesome. It only shows the power of Dividend Income engine. I’m that much closer to being  Financially Independent (FI) and living a life that I want to live and enjoy my freedom.
