March is staring off fairly quiet. Still not a lot of cash on my end but when I get it goes right into the market. Here are my trades for the week:
- JM Smucker (SJM) – increased position – SJMs forecast for the remainder of the year was not well received and prices dropped. Grabbed 1 share @ $127.37 and a 3.11% yield.
- Air Products (APD) – increased position – Too bad I didn’t hold out until Friday for a better share price. Grabbed 2 shares @ $231.47 and a 2.80% yield.
Got them both 🙂 At the moment I am mostly investing in swedish stocks, USD is rather high at this moment in time. But of course it also means more SEK from my US dividends, Got my 200th dividend holding this week in my retirement fund; Swedish paper producer BillerudKorsnäs.
Cannot blame you, collect those US dividends while the exchange rate is high and let the SEK roll in.
My buy for SJM is still under $100 don’t know if it’ll get back there.
APD is also on my radar. I see you’ve been adding bit by bit – I still think its a little expensive but its getting there under $200 would be tempting for me
D4J its been awhile and good to hear from you. Yeah my original buy-in price on SJM was $110. I’d kill to get that again and below $100 I’d agree not seeing that again unless something bad happens.
