Recent Buys --- T,F KHC, & XOM


Today I added shares of these four companies to my portfolio.

  • F:  350 shares @ $8.31 --- Yield  7.22%
  • T:  200 shares @ $30.47 --- Yield  6.56%
  • KHC:  50 shares @ $55.75 --- Yield  4.48%
  • XOM:  30 shares @ 77.75 --- Yield  4.22%

Total capital invested is $14,150.30 and has a combined yield of 5.89%.  These purchases will increase my yearly dividends by $833.40.

It's pretty cool/scary how high the yields on some of these companies are getting. T at 7% and Kraft at 5% would cause me to buy heavy. Kraft has fallen about $40 a share in the last year. I also have my eyes on BBL if it gets closer to 7% and MMM around 3%. Finally I believe IBM is touching 5% and will look at it closely as well.

In other news early retirement is fucking awesome!

  1. Geez...someone has been enjoying retirement. I guess all we need is a little dip in the market to get some updates and activity from MDP. Nice pickups. Can't bring myself to touch F, but I have been buying T and KHC as of late. If XOM gets down below $75, I may add some more.

    1. PIV,

      I have been enjoying my time off the hamster wheel for sure. Awesome job buying T and KHC on the cheap.

  2. What is your portfolio anymore that is supporting retirement. You should share it.

    1. DB,

      My dividend portfolio is relatively small right now, but will be adding some positions here and there. While getting a feel for what early retirement life is like, I have been pretty liquid. Right now I have a couple hundred thousand in 2.2% cds. My dividend income is about $4000 a year.

      I'll update my dividend spreadsheet in the next couple of days.

  3. MDP.

    Uhm... holy shit you are back!? Also... adding almost $70 per month in one day of purchasing is no joke. Yikes. M D P IS B A C K.

  4. Yee dips are nice. Im also considering to add some more T as the yield as you said on the skyhigh :) Need to look at fubdamentals and news. Maybe there is something behind this decline.

    1. P2035,

      It looks like VZ is killing T on the subscriber front right. I think T may be trying to juggle a couple too many businesses. These things typically self correct and the yield (and value) are pretty compelling in my estimation.

  5. All great picks and selections. I have been adding to three of the four you have listed, and also have been picking up BUD. Go Big Guy Go!

  6. Hey! Glad to see your out there enjoying your dream come true. I am glad to see some posts show back up here, i have missed reading your blog this year. I am been picking up many of the same securities as yourself, but as others have said I can't bring myself to touch Ford either, mostly because of the terrible historical returns of the auto industry in general. But to each their own!

    Have fun doing nothing ;)
