Buys and Sells for the Week 12/18

The Dow & S&P 500 refuses to go back below 30,000 and 3,650 . Absolutely amazing the market has kept it’s momentum for a month. With few opportunities available here are my trades for the week:

  1. AbbVie Inc. (ABBV) – increased position –  This buy is part of my efforts to increase my overall dividend payout in the second month of a quarter which is considerably lower than the other months. Grabbed 3 shares at $102.66 and a 5.06% yield
  2. Ventas Inc. (VTR)sold position – I bought this during the market crash in March but at the time could only afford to buy $250 worth. VTR since has slightly more than doubled and being such a small position I sold out and collected $561 (plus $9 in dividends). Luckily this trade was in my IRA so it did not trigger a taxable event.
  3. WP Carey Inc. (WPC)increased position – Using the funds from my VTR sale I reinvested back into old reliable WPC. Late Friday the stock price came back down below $70 a share so it was an opportune moment.
