On August 22, 2018, I bought 16 shares of Altria Group at $64.00 per share for a total of $1024.00.  Forward dividend stands at $4922.11.

As for my next buy Smuckers earnings is coming out on the 24th and they were brutally downgraded this morning. I'm starting to see the perfect storm for an earnings miss. $100 anyone?

Recent Buy: Altria Group

With the last of my Loyal3 money, on August 17, 2017, I bought 15 shares of Altria Group (MO) at $55.00 per share for a total of $975.00. And immediately MO drops and took the entire market with it. Proof that I am the stock market assassin.

Forward dividends: $4,883.07.

Recent Buy: Southern Corporation

On August 15, 2017, I bought 20 shares of the Southern Company (SO) at $48.50 per share for a total of $970.00. 

Forward Dividends stand at $4843.52. 

Dicks Sporting Goods just crashed and took the entire retail market with it. Target is on tap tomorrow and Walmart the next day. We might get another chance at some discounted retail reits O, STOR, and NNN are on my radar.

Recent Buy: AT&T

On August 14, 2017, I bought 30 shares of AT&T (T) at $38.42 per share for a total of $1147.20.  Teva cut their dividend and instantly crashed 50%. that hurts but hopefully T will do a lot better

Reasons why I'm overweight and have 233 shares of T

  • Teva dividend cut and was hunting for yield
  • T is still trading at fair value
  • Disney (DIS) crashed on poor network ratings and loss revenue. Now they're cutting off netflix and moving all their IP (except marvel) into Bamtech
    • why is Disney so important? It shows that channels are no longer important but the content is going to be the driving force in the future.
    • As another shot Netflix just stole a director from Disney.
  • T is continuing to merge North America. I see a big mexican-south american play with T without having to buy Mexican/South American stocks

My Loyal3 finally came over and all my partial shares were sold. in total I have an extra $1000. I am thinking of buying some more SO. Haven't decided yet. decisions decisions

But GIS is skyrocketing. Just my luck

Forward dividends $4,797.12.

Last Last July Buy: Altria Group

Ok I lied. This is my last last July Buy.

On July 31, 2017, I bought 15 shares of Altria Group (MO) at $65.50 per share for a total of $982.50.  And the stock immediately went lower.  I have more set aside, but with SO, MO, and GIS I'm tempted to bring in more reserve.  Based on my investment experience this should be a short term everybody panic moment.  Great for shorters and mutual funds to offload their capital gains.  But even if one catalyst kicks in the buying is over.  But if something bad happens more selling. In other words everybody panic. 

Like people say MO Money MO problems

Please god let me win the megamillion.

Forward dividends stand at $4,788.38.  I should have my July review by Thursday or Friday...or Sunday...
