October 2020 Dividend Income & Recent Buys

Happy Halloween πŸŽƒ πŸ‘» and welcome to November. Only two months left for 2020!

The market was on a little bit of a rollercoaster this past month. And finished the last few days with some extra volatility. Expecting this to continue, but did make more purchases than usually in October during the last couple hours of trading for the month. Always nice to put some ca$h to work. πŸ’ŽπŸ’Ž

Below is the dividend income received during October: (Values are in USD)

Below each purchase is a max view chart taken on the last day of the month. The screenshots are from Google Finance and include some extra metrics on the buys.

Went a little overboard on the buys right before the market close for Friday, but here we go…

6 shares – PEP @ $132.96 (existing position)

7 shares – CLX @ $206.50 (existing position)

29 shares – JNJ @ $135.75 (existing position)

6 shares – ECL @ $185.40 (existing position)

7 shares – WMT @ $139.51 (existing position)

20 shares – T @ $26.55 (existing position)

10 shares – ESGV @ $60.19 (existing position)

Planning to deploy some more reserves during the final two months of the year as market conditions allow. Expecting further buying opportunities for sure.

It’s as good a time as ever to review target investment allocations and personal risk tolerances. Having a game plan is always key.

Thank you for reading and have a great month! πŸ¦₯
