The closer we get to elections and/or discussions of a second round of COVID relief the markets get more confusing as to which way it wants to move. I cannot control the market but I can control what I buy and sell. Here is a summary of what I bought or sold this week:
- Avista Corp (AVA) – increased position – I bought a small position as I continue to work on getting my average cost per share below $35 with this 18 year dividend grower and a 4.7% yield.
- Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) – increased position – Second week in a row I bought WBA in an attempt to build up my small position. Their quarterly report was good but not great. I think the company has finally found a bottom with sales & earnings during the COVID crisis and hopefully can move forward from here. I’ll continue to add WBA with its 45 years of dividend growth and a 5% yield as long as share price remains below $38/share.
