Hello readers,

I just took a contractor job with Fema to help with the relief efforts in Harvey and soon to be Irma. This is a 2 months contract with the option to extend so I'll be gone for a bit.  I'll continue buying and posting whenever i can. until then everyone be safe out there.

Recent Buy: General Mills and Hormel. August review

Hello everybody, I'm currently volunteering with hurricane Harvey and don't have time to do my regular stuff.

On September 5, 2017, I bought 15 shares of Hormel for $500 and 18 shares of General Mills for $1000. and both immediately crashed with the market crashing 1%. You're welcome!

Portfolio current stands at $270,470.15 and forward dividends at $5016.96.

$5,000 dividend goal met; new goal is $5,500. 

I'm typing on a cell phone during lunch in Arkansas helping walmart send water and dry food to houston. see you guys next month.

Planned buys for the month

  • Consumer staples. All of them. We complain that they're overpriced and when they fall we don't take advantage!

adios folks.

recent buy: Smuckers

I tried a limit order on Hormel at $30.00 per share and it failed. Then I tried one at $31.50 and that failed. So I bought 10 shares of Smuckers at $109.00 per share for a total of $1090.00 and jeff bezos immediately destroyed the consumer defensive group and made me lose $1,500.00.

That's the kind of day I'm having. Only good news is General Mills is crashing. Maybe it'll get back to my $53.50 strike price.

Forward Dividends: $4,968.93.  Only good news was MO raising it's dividends. Thanks MO.

Recent Buy: Altria Group

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.
