Recent Buy - Realty Income (O)

With Christmas just around the corner I have been in a giving mood. Now that I have all my Christmas shopping all done I felt it was a good time to do a little shopping for myself and I think the future me will be very happy with this gift.

Today I purchased 18 shares of Realty Income (O) @ $56.60 for a total of $1018.80

It was just in July when I sold my entire position at around the $70 mark to help pay off my mortgage and the timing could not have been better. The stock began to lose some steam and here we are again in the mid $50 range. It feels good to be back!

This purchase will be my first for my Roth IRA account, and I've already setup automatic dividend reinvestment (DRIP) as well.

November 2016 Dividend Income Update

It's time for my November dividend update! This month I just squeaked missed the 300 dollar mark with $290.59 of dividend income. This is about the same as last quarter because I have not made any purchases with pay dividends in this month since then. There's not too many stocks that really look that attractive with the markets going crazy. Still there are some names out there that are falling in the face of rising stock market like Unilever (UL) and Realty Income (O) which I have been watching with interest.

I'm curious what stocks my readers have an eye on. Will you continue making regular purchases, have you decided to save your cash for now?
