THE STOCKS I'M BUYING IN 2019
I'm excited to share the #dividend #stocks I'm buying in January, 2019 (and throughout the new year). 2019 is going to be a very exciting year for dividend growth #investing in my humble opinion. With the stock market under pressure, values are certainly emerging (with high dividend starting yields).
Today's video first starts with some buy orders that I executed in late December, before the new year. December was a busy month for this dividend growth investor!
I initiated a new position in Apple (AAPL) in December, and also took the opportunity to average down. I'm really pleased with the falling stock price and increasingly enticing value this stock provides.
* Bought 12/13 for $171.52
* Bought more 12/26 for $151.09
* Now $148.26 and I can't wait to buy more!
In the long-run, I do not think the trade war will even be remembered. I'm looking 20-30 years out. I love the stock market opportunities this trade war is creating.
I took the opportunity to build my growing dividend stock position in 3M (MMM) during December.
* Bought 12/26 for $180.57
* Now $191.32, still a reasonable value and I look forward to buying more!
I also could not resist adding a little more BTI (BTI). With an impressive starting yield, this stock brings immediate cash flow to dividend investors.
* Bought 12/28 for $32.44
* Now $32.99 and will probably buy more.
* Love the 8.3% starting yield! Not part of my strategic charter, but so drawn to that starting dividend yield.
Next, I transition into my strategic focus for 2019.
I'll be very focused on United Technologies (UTX), my #4 favorite stock of all time.
* $107.02 PPS, 2.7% starting dividend yield, 14.88 forward 2018 PE
* Love how it has fallen on trade war news and the fact they are splitting the company.
* 14.88 PE for UTX is a bargain basement valuation, in my humble opinion.
I'll also be building my PepsiCo (PEP) position, my #2 favorite stock of all time.
* $110.48 PPS, 3.36% starting dividend yield, 19.52 forward 2018 PE.
* Not a bargain, it's at a fair valuation. That said, I really want to build this position and need to start buying monthly to reach my goals.
I wanted to buy some Cedar Fair (FUN) in December, but I ran out of funds. As a top 15 favorite stock, I'll add some more in 2019!
* $48.77 PPS, 7.6% starting dividend yield
Also will buy General Mills (GIS) in January and throughout the year. Adding to that position monthly. Also, considering adding to BTI and AAPL.
Last, I share general investing frameworks that I will follow in 2019 in order to stay focused on the right path.
