This is my buy of December 2018 (so far)

Quick update from my side, I made a nice buy to diversify my holdings a bit and its an aristocrat to boot!

legget-platt

I purchased 16 shares of Legget & Platt (LEG) @ $39,30 and with the remainder of my capital I still had enough to buy 1 share of AT & T (T) @ $30,50.

As per usual, both stock prices continued to go down a few dollars a share but since there appears to be a general correction I won’t hold it agains Mr. Market this time 🙂

These buys, together with a few dividend increases bring my new (post-tax) forward income to…… €573,-!  With the recent volatilty a lot of new potential buys have opened up, so maybe I’ll buy end up buying some more stocks: MSFT, CTAS, CINF, T, TGT, and mamy more are on my watchlist.

I hadn’t updated my personal sheet to reflect the dividend increases of last quarter, reading them back definitely puts a smile on my face:

  1. I used to own LEG. It’s a good dividend stock. Slow but steady growth and a decent yield if you are patient and buy at the right price. I sold to consolidate some positions and reduce the number of stocks I own. Just can’t own them all. Tom

  2. Nice purchases Mr. Robot, I’ve seen a few people adding LEG and it’s certainly a quality company. That’s also a nice collection of raises that you’ve received. Congrats on boosting that forward income!
