Buys and Sells for the Week 12/31

Looks like I’m ending the year on a whimper with just a few small buys. I usually have little to no cash at the end of a year but this time I will be carrying over a sizeable cash position into the new year. Here is a summary of my trades:

  1. Verizon (VZ) – 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 $58.15 and a 4.33% yield
  2. Oil-Dri Corporation of America (ODC) – increased position – This buy was also part of my efforts to increase my overall dividend payout in the second month of a quarter. Grabbed 5 shares at $33.55 and a 3.10% yield.

  1. I do like VZ and I’m tempted to buy some as I don’t have it in my portfolio yet, but I’m still turning to T each month instead – I think T has much more risk but that’s why the dividend is 7%.
