Weekly Buys and Sells for the Week 12/3

Received four dividend raises this week; 6.15% raise from Merck (MRK), 11.1% raise in C$ from Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS), 10.3% raise in C$ from Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CM), and a 10.2% raise from Amgen (AMGN). Markets picked up where they left off on Black Friday continuing to drop when the Fed hinted at accelerating the tapering process by a few months which made quite a few buying opportunities. Here are my trades for the week:

  1. Leggett and Platt (LEG) – increased position – Slowly building this position out with small buys. Grabbed 2 shares @ $40.64 and a 4.13% yield..
  2. Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) – increased position – WBA is increasing their focus on health care and I am onboard. Grabbed 2 shares @ $45.66 and a 4.20% yield.
  3. Snap-On Inc. (SNA) – increased position – Keep lowering my cost per share with this strong dividend growth stock. Grabbed 3 shares @ $207.81 and a 2.73% yield.
  4. Verizon Inc. (VZ) – increased position – This buy should push me into a triple digit quarterly payout for 2022. Grabbed 3 share @ $51.46 and a 4.97% yield.
  5. Amgen (AMGN) – increased position – Priced dropped yet again and got this a $1/share cheaper than what I paid for in October. Grabbed 1 share @ $200.59 and a 3.51% yield.
  6. Unilever PLC (UL) – increased position – Trading at their 52 week low. Grabbed 2 shares @ $51.11 and a 3.91% yield.
  7. J.M. Smucker (SJM) – increased position – Started this position earlier in the year and still working on building it up. Grabbed 1 share @ $126.23 and a 3.14% yield.
  8. Oil-Dri Corporation of America (ODC) – increased position – ODC is finally raising their prices for kitty litter. Grabbed 2 shares @ $32.72 and a 3.29% yield.

  1. Consistency is the key, and slow and steady wins the race. I don’t have any of those positions SD but I like how you are systematically increasing your position over time. Moreover, it’s always good when companies increase their dividends without you having to do anything.

    I like your blog. I added yours to my resources page on my blog. I’m looking forward to future updates.

  2. Thank you Dividend Portfolio,
    Dividend growth investing isn’t the fastest way to FI but has the least barrier of entry and the concept is easy which is why I like it. As you stated best way to be successful with this is consistent saving & investing.
