Market bounce came to a complete halt when inflation data came out. Volatility is just oh so fun.
I received 5 dividend raises this week; Ares Capital (ARCC) 2.44% plus a special 12 cent payout spread over 4 quarters, Hasbro (HAS) 2.94%, 3M (MMM) 0.7%, Pepsico (PEP) 6.98%, and T. Rowe Price (TROW) 11.11%. Here are my trades for the week:
- Air Products (APD) – increased position – It has been a long time since I last bought APD but downward share price caught my attention. Grabbed 2 shares @ $249.31 and a 2.6% yield.
- T. Rowe Price (TROW) – increased position – Share price still in the dumps but with even a better yield after their announcement. Grabbed 2 shares @ $148.54 and a 3.23% yield.
- Global X S&P 500 Risk Managed Income ETF (XRMI) – new position – picked up a small position to go with NUSI. This is an experimental buy with no plans to add more shares. My goal is to hold and see how leveraged funds will work with my portfolio up to retirement and decide if it is something to increase the day I move into retirement. Grabbed 100 shares @ $25.62 and a 8.51% yield.
