Recent buy: KMB

I purchased 17 shares of KMB (Kimberly Clark Corp) today. They sell toilet paper and tissues and other stuff that aren't very exciting. It offers a juicy 3.24% yield right now and has a decent P/E ratio that isn't sky high. It is a dividend aristocrat with a 44 year history of increasing dividends.

17 shares = $2034.05


  1. Young Div -

    Congrats on the purchase, nice job on this - as this is something we all use : ) Glory to the toilet cloggers using too much ; ) hahah


    1. Got to admit Lanny, I got a little chuckle out of your comment. Always like a little potty humor. Tom

  2. YD, Good purchase. Consumer staples haven't participated as much in the recent rally, so you are likely finding some value here. Tom

  3. I bought more KMB on the 4th getting in before ex-div. But you got a slightly better price.

  4. Utes are starting to get a tad interesting as well. I'm thinking about opening up a position in SRE.
