Recent Purchases: July

With July having come and gone I can now tell you the ways I was able to deploy capital in order to create cash flow! Earlier in the month I showed you all my watch list and in total I was able to deploy $1309.69! This is the first time I have tallied the total invested in a given month and I must say I am quite surprised. Unfortunately though this will not continue. 

The last week in July was my last regular paycheck for the summer. I will have $0 in regular earned income until I return to school and when I return my income from my job as an RA should be minimal. Because of this I have now decided to consider a part time job for this coming semester. This would be a significant addition though as I already am taking 21 credits, have a part time job as an RA and enjoy being a normal college student every now and again. The possibility is there but more consideration is needed.

I have decided that due to the amount of transactions I make I will begin posting purchase updates at the end of each month rather than along the way. This will make updating you all easier for me and my updates will be (in my opinion) more worth while.

So here are the companies I purchased this July.

Mostly smaller purchases this month. I decided to mix in traditional DGI holdings with some other popularity plays. These positions are undoubtedly 'starters' as I would like to own more equity in many of these companies. My shares in V, KO and SBUX came during the epitome of Greek drama. My only issue is I wish I bough more shares!

What have you been buying lately?
Do we share any purchases?
Do you dollar cost average into your positions?

I am a 21 year old kid who seeks to create a life of financial independence via passive income. The accumulation and growth of quality dividend yielding stocks will be the main source of income and this is my journey.

  1. I like EMR from your list above. You bought into many solid names but with the market dropping better buys are coming up in the industrial sector. I have held EMR for a long, long time and plan to add to it at these levels. I just recently added to my RY holdings as the large Canadian banks are beaten up pretty bad too.
