Buys and Sells for the Week 2/18

The dividend raises keep coming in, definitely my best February ever for raises. My run on dividend raises are over for now and should pick up again in April. The first two months of 2021 has increased my forward dividend income by 2%, pretty amazing considering we have 10 more months left for raises.

I received 4 dividend raises this week; Garmin (GRMN) 8.96%, Walmart (WMT) 1.82%, Medical Properties Trust (MPW) 3.57%, and Allstate (ALL) 4.94%. Here are my trades for the week:

  1. Preferred Apartment Communities (APTS) – sold position – APTS is being bought out by Blackstone Real Estate Income Trust. Was looking to trim some of my REIT exposure and this was a great opportunity to sell my entire position and more than doubled my investment. Sold @ $25.20.
  2. Leggett and Platt (LEG) – increased position – Used all the proceeds from the APTS sale to add to my LEG position and to reduce my position in REITS. Grabbed 275 shares @ $38.52 and a 4.36% yield.
  3. Air Products (APD) – increased position – Still on sale and used the last of my cash to buy. Grabbed a total of 12 shares; 6 shares @ $240.00 and 6 shares @ $239.75 for a 2.7% yield.
  4. Oil-Dri Corp of America (ODC) – increased position – Cheap enough it was hard to ignore. Grabbed 5 shares @ $31.29 and a 3.45% yield

    • Nice to see you back DH it has been awhile. LEG below $40 is always hard to ignore lol. APD I’ve had for awhile and missed a buying opportunity a few years back to add to it, wasn’t going to let that opportunity slip again.
