So its a double whammy buy post for your reading pleasure!
I made one regular buy in April, I added a Dividend Aristocrat to my portfolio who has been on quite some radars of fellow DGI bloggers:
On the 15th of April I initiated a position with 14 shares @ $53,89.
In The Netherlands, April is the month where your employer pays your “Holiday allowance”. In my case I discussed with my wife if we should add some more fuel to our FIRE and she said yes! So that means that I could double my buying power in May (and actually I also already used my budget for June since I was on a buying a spree).
On the 8th of May I Initiated a position in another well known company, 3M. I bought 4 shares @ $179,90.
I really went on a buying spree on the 23d of May since I bought three different shares including one new one!
I bought and expanded my position with 14 shares Legget & Platt (LEG) @ $36,97.
I bought and expanded my position with 10 shares Iron Mountain (IRM) @ $31,76.
And last but not least I opened up one new position with 10 shares of CVS @ $52,75.
BAM! There you have it, I wielded some nice capital to buy (what I believe to be) some mighty fine investments which will provide me and my family with increasing income for many years to come (well except CVS for a while).
My new forward income is now €822,27 post-tax. Dang people, the infamous €1000 mark is in my sights!
