After a brief pause to do some home improvements, our family resumed active trading. With the recent market pull-back, we have been pretty active lately. In March, although we sold some shares to cash out some profits, we had bought 10 companies!
This month, we continued the buying spree. Although we no longer post full details of our buys and sells activities, we had 2 sells and 5 buys.
Sells (decrease in Fwd Dividends: $51.00/yr):
- BMY (BRISTOL MYERS SQUIBB CO) - $21.60
- CAH (CARDINAL HEALTH INC) - $29.40
Buys (increase in Fwd Dividends: $85.00/yr):
- IQ (IQIYI INC ADR) - N/A
- CMCSA (COMCAST CORP) - $27.00
- DIS (DISNEY WALT COMPANY) - N/A
- VZ (VERIZON COMMUNICATIONS COM) - $38.40
- TSM (TAIWAN SEMICONDUCTOR MFG CO LTD ADR) - $19.60
With the activities seen above, our forward annual dividends decreased by roughly $34.00. Wow! We knew our forward dividends would be falling due to the recent sales but have to admit, I didn't think they were going to go down by this much. Look for our April buys because we made a few purchases that helped get some of these forward dividends back. :)
