Recent Buy – ABT, BNS, GSK

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.

It was interesting to note that I bought the same set of companies that I bought last week and so, I’ll be brief and just mention the purchases.

1) Abbott Laboratories, Inc. (ABT)
I bought 5 positions in ABT at $38.87 on 6/09 and it’ll add $5.20 of passive income on an annual basis.

2) Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS)
I added 10 positions in BNS on 6/09 at $52.16. It’ll add $28.80 of passive dividend income on an annual basis. Bank stocks have nicely recovered in last few weeks.

3) GlaxoSmithKline (GSK)
I bought 10 positions in GSK on 6/08 at $42.56 in my taxable account. It will add $22.20 of passive income on an annual basis.

Full Disclosure: Long on above mentioned securities.

Thanks for reading.

Monthly Dividend Income – May 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.

Wow! I scored eight hundred+ in total passive dividend Income: $856.04 to be precise. This month, my dividend income was more than 16.62% compared to last Feb and out of park as compared to last May, over 280%.That’s awesome as my May month has been historically slow in last many years and crossing $800 felt great. 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.
