There is no time like the present to add money into the market. After starting my after tax portfolio with a lump sum, I have been making additional purchases on a weekly basis. Approximately $250 of fresh capital is deployed each week into my current positions, I keep a list of which positions currently offer an attractive price and as long as I’m not overweight (up to 5%) on that positions I will add to it. Let’s move on to the reason you clicked on this article.
This weeks additions are:
1 share of Tractor Supply Company (TSCO) @ $191.93
1 share of Aflac (AFL) @ $59.68
1 share of Google (GOOG) @ $120.34 Not a dividend stock but growing my position
Tractor Supply Company is a US retailer with 2,000 stores across 49 states. It is geared towards agricultural supplies for recreational farmers and landowners. Think of it as a Home Depot for farmers. Currently it offers a 1.94% yield with an impressive 5 and 10 year Dividend CAGR of 23.8% and 26.25%
Aflac provides supplemental health and life insurance products in the US and Japan. If your insurance policy only covers 80% of your medical costs, an Aflac plan can cover the remainder. It currently offers a 2.69% yield and has a 5 and 10 year Dividend CAGR of 11.4% and 8.5%
With today’s purchases I have increased my dividend income by $5.28 per year. You can view my portfolio holdings here.
