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.
1) BHP Billiton plc (BBL)
I had recently bought BBL in Oct and since then, valuation has gotten better. Its a great opportunity to average down the cost. BBL has a nice dividend yield of 8.36% and market cap of $78.9B. At its 52 week high, it traded at $50.02 and currently trading at $29.67, almost 40% lower.
I bought 30 positions in BBL at $32.00 on 11/05 and added another 30 positions at $29.06 on 11/06. It will add $148.80 of passive income on an annual basis.
2) ConocoPhillips (COP)
COP is one of the super-major integrated O&G company that has been dragged down due to low oil prices. I find it under-valued at current price. I added 20 positions on 11/04 at $56.73. It will add $59.20 of passive income annually.
3) Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI)
KMI is a pipeline company that is finding it tough going in this oil-glut, to say the least. However, its nicely valued in my opinion. It was my recent buy and so was Lanny’s Recent Buy again. It has a nice dividend yield of 7.83%. I added 30 positions on 11/04 at $27.50 in my taxable account. It will add $61.20 of passive income on an annual basis.
4) Omega Heathcare Investors, Inc. (OHI)
Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) have been pulled down due to concerns about Fed raising interest rates and their impact on the earnings of these REITs. I consider a good time to add to my positions as OHI is selling at an excellent price point. The yield of 6.68% is also simply great.
I bought 30 positions in OHI on 11/03 at $34.00 and added another 30 positions on 11/05 at $34.25. It’ll add $134.40 of passive income on an annual basis.
5) Royal Dutch Shell plc (RDS.B)
RDS.B sports a juicy dividend yield of 7.21%. I added 20 positions in RDS.B on 11/04 at $54.94 in my taxable account. It will add $75.20 of passive income annually.
6) Vodafone Group plc (VOD)
Vodafone is a UK based mobile phone company that I recently added it. So, this was an addition to existing positions.
VOD has a nice dividend yield of 7.29% and currently, trading at $32.66, a good price point to enter into the position. If price drops further, I may add more positions to average down the cost. I added 30 positions in VOD on 11/05 at $33.00 in my taxable account, making up total 80 positions. It will add $71.40 of passive income on an annual basis.
Whew! What a hectic shopping schedule first week of this month but will go a long way in becoming financially free.
Full Disclosure: Long on above mentioned securities.
Thanks for reading.
