Recent Buy: NSC
Chugga Chugga Chugga Chugga CHOO CHOO. I had a toy train set as a child...but I had to give it away because my family was too poor to buy the batteries. On Wednesday July 15, 2015, I bought 11 shares of NSC at $87.70/share for a total of 971.70.
I've been scanning the market for deals and the railroad companies have been beaten down lately. It went down between UNP and NSC. I bought NSC for the higher yield and more shares. Dividend Diplomat has a great article on why you should buy NSC. Link here
I have been learning how to calculate DDM so below are my quick and dirty math. I'm still working on how to calculate DCF.
Dividend Discount Model
Dividend Growth rate over 5 years=11.3%

Equals a fair value of $87.41.
