As I’m typing this the largest storm of the year (called Eunice) is passing over the Netherlands. They expect millions in damages and a lot of schools / offices are closed. Public transportation has stopped and trains are also no longer available.
They expect this to the last for several hours, so it’s a waiting game now. Thankfully me and my family are indoors and are not expecting (and also hoping) that everyone and everything remains safe. This is the second storm in the same week and they are expecting another one in a few days. In my 39 years on this planet I don’t remember experiencing winds this heavy here.
So lets talk about January, on the 26th I made the following 4 stock purchases:
- 2 x shares of Visa (V) @ $207,70.
- 2 x shares of T Rowe Price (TROW) @ $159,85.
- 3 x shares of Omega Healthcare (OHI) @ $30,73.
- 2 x shares of Verizon (VZ) @ $51,82.
As you can see I’m still expanding my positions in both V and TROW, with the remaining funds I also added to the older positions of OHI and VZ.
Alas, the dividend cut of T was finally reveiled and with 70 shares of T, the impact was significant. So much even, that my buys from January only (exactly) recovered the lost dividend.
I added no forward income this month, that’s not something I wish to repeat. Anyway, this is also part of the DGI journey and a learning experience for me as well.
So there you have it, a new post with new information on my progress. Is there something else you would like me to share or expand on? Let me know in the comments!
