These are my buys for Q2 and Q3 2020

Welcome my fellow investors! It’s been a while since I last posted my buys, so here we go for a short and sweet post about my activity during the second and third quarter of this year!

Date Company # Shares Price
4-5-2020 AFL 10 $35,72
4-5-2020 ADM 10 $34,77
4-5-2020 WBA 4 $42,41

3-6-2020 FDX 2 $138,15
3-6-2020 OHI 6 $33,15
6-7-2020 IRM 12 $26,34
6-7-2020 T 8 $30,32
6-7-2020 ED 5 $73,90
6-7-2020 AFL 1 $35,92
18-8-2020 WKL 8 € 70,22
18-8-2020 CSCO 6 $42,24
25-8-2020 WKL 9 € 71,04
27-8-2020 CWEN 2 $25,94
25-9-2020 UNA 10 € 50,70
25-9-2020 ADP 2 $129,23
25-9-2020 CWEN 3 $24,12

My more avid readers will spot the two new companies immediately: WKL & CWEN! One Dutch dividend “aristocrat” and a somewhat more volatile/speculative dividend stock since its all about the green stuff! Energy that is, not marihuana :).

Wolters Kluwer: “Wolters Kluwer is a Europe-listed global information services company. It operates across four distinct business segments serving a wide array of clients: health (26% of 2019 sales), tax and accounting (31%), legal and regulatory (23%), and governance, risk, and compliance (20%). Within these divisions, Wolters aims to be the industry leader in a variety of niche, higher-value services.”

Clearway Energy: “Clearway Energy, Inc. is a leading publicly-traded energy infrastructure investor focused on modern, sustainable and long-term contracted assets across North America. Clearway Energy’s environmentally-sound asset portfolio includes over 7,000 megawatts of wind, solar and natural gas-fired power generation facilities, as well as district energy systems. Through this diversified and contracted portfolio, Clearway Energy endeavors to provide its investors with stable and growing dividend income.”

With all these buys my new annual forward income has risen to €1394,- (euro, post-tax). Come to think of it, that means that I added about €38,- in additional forward income in 6 months. Thats actually not that much given the money invested but I (mostly) have the dollar/euro conversion rate to thank for that and two dividend cuts (DIS and SPG).

Oh well it still means that I’m averaging more then €116,- per month!

  1. Wow, you have been pretty active Mr. Robot! Nice to see that you managed to increase your dividend income, even with some dividend cuts.
    I heard the name of Wolters Kluwer at work, as I am creating packages in our environment from their applications. I think it’s used by some accountants or auditors in Sweden in our company 🙂
    Keep it up!

    1. Thanks BI! What a small world that you’ve heard of it!

      When I was creating my treemap (few posts back) I also noticed (and somewhere in the back of my mind knew) that the vast majority of my stocks are US, so I’m now actively expanding my NON-US stocks to diversify geographically.

  2. Top.

    als ik in een dipje zit wat betreft mijn blog en portfolio kom ik voor inspiratie gewoon even naar jouw blog en zet ik de geldkraan weer open om niet te ver achterop te raken bij jou 🙂

    Is uiteraard geen wedstrijd, maar ik hou wel van een beetje competitie.

    Dus blijf doorgaan.

    1. Hi Mr. Groeigeld, thanks for stopping by! I’m staying the course so I will continue buying as usual. I will try to see if I can add to my non-US stocks as I have been doing in the past months.

      I’m also eying some gold stocks, inspired by some other blogs but I haven’t made any moves yet.

      To be complete, I still dual-wield every month. Meaning that I do 60/40 with buying stocks and saving/paying off mortgage.
