Recent Buy - Kraft (KRFT)

Today I added to my position in the food giant Kraft (KRFT). This is my second purchase in a row where I purchased Kraft. I had saved enough capital to make another purchase before the ex-div date. The stock has come down from the mid $54 range recently and is looking attractive, it was time to grab up some more. Today's purchase was 22 shares at a price of $52.65, so in addition to my last purchase of KRFT I now have a total of 43 shares. I'm looking forward to my next purchase now which will likely be KMI but we'll see how things go.

  1. Where do I see the ex dividend dates of companies? For example kraft?

    1. There's a few that I use to see the ex-div dates. Yahoo finance is the one I usually use, after you enter a stock symbol then you can get the dividend information under "key statistics". Here's an example ...

      Just off the top of my head is another, although it's a pay site you can get some of the dividend information like the next ex-div date. Example ....

      Dailyfinance is yet another ...

      Hope that helps

  2. Nice buy. I was especially happy when they increased the dividend one quarter ahead of expectations; looks like mgt will be very shareholder friendly. And in case you didn't see it, they recently announced a 3 billion dollar stock repurchase program.

    1. That was announced the same day I made my purchase so that was a nice surprise. It's nice to see management with a commitment to return capital to it's shareholders.

  3. This company is shareholder friendly and a solid company. They announced a 3 Billion dollar buy back also!

    1. So far they sure are showing signs of a great dividend stock. The buy back is another great step to give back to shareholders.
