It was a hectic week between work and home life and I didn’t get around to posting my weekly update. The blog might have missed a beat but I did not forget to invest. With the substantial market drop it’s getting hard to choose which company to DCA into, I have recently focused on some long term holds that I have added any additional capital.
Last week additions are:
1 share of Proctor & Gamble (PG) @ $123.65
2 shares of A.O. Smith (AOS) @ $49.66
1 share of Franklin Investments (BEN) @ $21.89
1 share of Google (GOOG) @ $99.03
I invested $244.86 into my dividend portfolio and increased my forward dividend income by $7.05 or a 2.87% return.
And this week I added:
2 shares of Proctor & Gamble (PG) @127.04
1 share of Google (GOOG) @ $101.02
Investing $254.08 into my dividend portfolio and increasing my forward dividend income by $7.30 or a 2.87% return

Proctor & Gamble is a consumer goods giant specializing in a wide range of personal care and hygiene products. Your house is probably stocked with their products and you might not even know it. They have a large portfolio of brands under the P&G name, check these everyday names. They are a dividend aristocrat with 66 years a dividend growth and have paid a dividend for 132 years. Being a mature company this is a steady earner for any dividend oriented portfolio. Both 5 and 10 year CAGR are just north of 5% and currently has a 2.8% yield and a 63% payout ratio. With the recent decline I began to add to my small position.
