Summary:
  1. Annual Dividend increase month over month by $376.27 (from $6,642.80 to $7019.07). This was thanks to my stock options, overtime, dividend increases, and continuing depression in the consumer staples.
  2. I FINALLY BROKE $7,000! ONTO $8,000!
  3. Next week I’m buying 5 shares of Pepsico.
  4. I finally have 100 shares of PG. I consider this a full position for the time being unless PG drops to 5%.
  5. I am now eyeing Hershey’s, Clorox, Tyson, TAP, and a few other consumer staples.
  6. One interesting stock I’ve been watching is Corning (GLW). The world is getting smaller and 5G is threatening to make it even smaller. Many of us are invested in 5G tech like T, VZ, APPL, QCOM, etc. However, from my research 5G relies heavily on fiber optics and the biggest player in the market is GLW. It should be noted that GLW is perceptually undervalued. In good times they fall behind the S&P. In bad times they get taken to the woodshed. But there are some good things I see in GLW
    1. Low PE ratio
    2. Significant decrease of total outstanding shares. Approximately 30% have been retired.
    3. Huge investment into the future markets. Fiber optics, environmental pollution reduction, gorilla glass with Willow trademarked for potential home use, valor glass for medical devices, etc.
  7. At the same time I’m thinking of pushing into the insurance business specially ORI. Higher interest rates normally allow insurance firms to load up on bonds for the future.
  8. In other news I bought a really cheap ticket to Hawaii last January (~$600) for a 2 week vacation starting on May 31...and now a volcano is threatening to blow...maybe god is trying to tell me something...

Forward Annual Dividends stand at $7019.07. Portfolio updated. See you next month.

Things I'm watching this week, Without Bounds - Perspective on Mobile Living . I might buy an RV when I retire.

Recent Buys: Pepsico and Walmart

On May 1, 2018, I bought 6.607 shares of Walmart for a total of $575 ($500 contribution + $75 Walmart matching). 

On May 2, 2018, I bought 5 shares of Pepsico at $99.16 for a total of $495.80.

The market continues marching down. Is this the big one we've been waiting for or another dip? who knows but I would consider buying more PEP at these prices. Did you know PEP's yield wasn't even this high during the recession.

Forward dividend stands at $6,917.06.  My gameplan for the rest of this year is to build out more of my portfolio. I still need to finish building out my PG, PEP, CLX, CL, ORI, and several other companies. During the recession (when we have one) I'm going to flip into buying growth stocks. Microsoft, Amazon, redhat, taketwo, ITW, HON, BA, MCD, CRBL, etc. With my core still reinvesting I'm using my main income to buy companies that are rarely if ever on sale. To fund these buys I'm reducing my every other week's buy to $500 and stock $500 for the bank. It's nice having two jobs with one job paying a hefty bonus every three months.  Last quarter every full-time walmart employee at my store received $1,750 and I received $450 for being part time. To put that into perspective my entire career as a govt contractor/agent total bonus was $0.00. 

As far as investing in growth, my entire 401k/tsp is invested in the C-fund. It's complicated, I was first a govt contractor but then the position was eliminated and then they converted us contractors to federal agents, then fired us but rehired us as contractors. And ever since the hiring they have allowed us to maintain our tsp plan...for some reason. The govt makes no sense.

In other news I lost the username code of my 401k/tsp so the April review will be behind a bit. Until then see you later.

Recent Buy: Carpet Bombing the Consumer Staples

On April 25, 2018, I bought

  • Buy 2 shares of Clorox (CLX) at $117.79 for a total of $235.58.
  • Buy 2 shares of Kimberly Clark (KMB) at $103.19 for a total of $206.38.
  • Buy 2 shares of Pepsico at $102.32 for a total of $204.64.
  • Buy 5 shares of Procter and Gamble (PG) at $72.60 for a total of $363.00.
  • Buy 1 share of ConAgra Brands (CAG) at $36.94 for a total of $36.94.
Forward dividend stands at $6,852.80. btw what if I told you I took on a 3rd job doing food delivery on top of my regular job and walmart. This new job allows me the flexibility of working whenever I want to but the downside is I have to file as an independent contractor. I'm delivering locally for food, clothing for small businesses, legal docs, etc. I'm a business owner now...which means MORE MONEY FOR STOCKS!!!!

See you next week. I'll probably divide my $500 buy into two-three stocks and execute on my walmart stock options.

Recent Buys: a bunch of stuff

Sorry for the late update. My mom has shingles and I've been busy. Here are my recent buys

April 10, 2018
  • 12 shares of Procter and Gamble at $78.71 for a total of $944.52.
  • 1 share of Conagra Brands at $36.80 for a total of $36.80.
April 11, 2018
  • 1 share of Aqua America at $33.58 for a total of $33.58.
April 16, 2018
  • 6 shares of Procter and Gamble at $78.40 for a total of $470.4.
April 19, 2018
  • I exercised my Walmart stock options and bought 6.541 shares of Walmart at $87.9084 for a total of $575.00 ($500 principal + $75 Walmart contribution)
  • I also bought 10 shares of Phillip Morris at $88.95 for a total of $889.50. I bought it a bit early but I'm always early with my buys.
Next week I will do a split buy between Phillip Morris or Altria and Procter and Gamble totaling ~$1.000.  So many deals coming in at once and so little money!  Forward dividends stand at $6,814.32. 

PM revenue increase 10% YoY but missed by 100M. So let's destroy their market caps by 15%. PG increasing organic growth and revenue so let's know them down 5%. And Clorox dropped 5%(?) because they're in the same sector. What a crazy market. 

In other news I've began another one of my new year's resolution; to learn something new every month. This month I listened to Black Rednecks and White Liberals by Thomas Sowell. Basic premise is white southerners culturally appropriated English aristocrat culture and then blacks culturally appropriated southern culture and this is basically known as modern "thug" culture. here's a link. I'll see you folks later.

  • Dividend went from $6,491.02 (February) to $6,642.80 (March). An increase of $151.78. 
    • $1,357.20 more needed to reach my goal of $8,000.
  • Portfolio increased to $316,780.92.
    • $83,219.08 more needed to reach my goal of $400,000.
  • Volatility continues and I continue to buy the dip. Hoping to buy more consumer defensive in the following months.
