With some extra cash sitting in a money market fund earning close to nothing and one free trade in my ROTH account setting to expire in a few days I re-visited my recent blog post, “September Stock Considerations” and decided to act as several stocks from that blog post were trading much lower than in previous days.
For those who are regular DivHut readers, you know that I have been primarily adding to my financial holdings for the past five months among others that are not in the sector. I have been slowly increasing my positions in AFL, CB, WFC and initiated new positions in TD, BNS and RY. While my financial sector holdings are still considered light relative to my other holdings I could not pass up on some relative bargains that Mr. Market has offered in recent days.
Sticking to my September Stock Considerations:
I have added to my taxable account 30 shares at $50.67 for a total investment of $1,527.05 in General Mills, Inc. (GIS).
I have added to my taxable account 25 shares at $58.35 for a total investment of $1,465.70 in AFLAC Inc. (AFL).
I have added to my ROTH account 20 shares at $42.60 for a total investment of $852.00 in Unilever plc (UL).
The purchase of UL represents a new position in my ROTH account. What do you think about my recent stock purchases? This is my second purchase tranche for the month of September. Please let me know below.
