In the final throws of winter with what feels like endless snow storms, short daylight and markets that seem overvalued. It is taking its toll on being positive, luckily I got to enjoy a few dividend raises; TROW 20% , UPS 1%, and PEP 5.1%. With raises perking me up a bit here are my buys for the week:
- Verizon (VZ) – increased position – Continued to add to this fairly new position in my portfolio. Grabbed 10 shares @ $54.94 and a 4.56% yield.
- Pepsico (PEP) – increased position – Not sure why but after reporting good earnings and a dividend raise the stock price fell. Grabbed 14 shares @ $134.80 and a 3.19% yield.
- AbbVie (ABBV) – increased position – ABBV’s price has not risen much after reporting fairly good earnings. Grabbed 12 shares @ $103.32 and a 5.03% yield.
