Recent buy: ABT, GIS, KMB ...

Tuesday morning at around 11am Eastern time, I sent in orders for the following companies below. I pay $1 per company buy so this week I will spend $7 total.

KMBKIMBERLY CLARK CORP$450.00
SJMSMUCKER (JM) CO THE$450.00
WECWEC ENERGY GROUP INC$450.00
WTRAQUA AMERICA INC$450.00


The market as a whole rebounded a bit on Monday. The names I picked still have not rebounded significantly from their drops so I decided to drip into these names. I would of liked Colgate but it's still expensive and rebounded a lot so I dropped it off the list.

ABT, GIS, and KMB are my super core positions.
WTR and WEC are my core utilities
CLX and SJM I consider not a mandatory core holding but I still think they are high quality dividend growth companies so I added to them since I don't have much in them.

So this week I plopped down $3003 and the average yield is 2.71% so this will add around $81 more to my annual dividends. It may not seem like a lot but bit by bit the amount of money I can get per year from dividends is growing. Since I started my investments, I have grown from a few $100 per year to now a bit over $6400. Eventually this income will be able to cover all my living expenses and everything I earn from my main job will just be icing on the cake.

  5. That's a lot of buys in very safe dividend plays. That will definitely move the passive income pile forward. Thanks for sharing.
