 It's been a pretty active February when it comes to buys.  

Switched out a couple of companies for better growth opportunities..    

The centerpiece to building a solid dividend growth portfolio is to make sure you pick up shares of a company that regularly increase the dividend.  Otherwise, you are only depending on equity growth to boost income.  

Started a new position in Service Corps Intl (SCI).  Good track record of growth at will not be going away.  They are the owners of funeral homes.  They have a very very captive audience that will only grow.

I did sell 2 holdings, PPL Corp (PPL) and Vitaris (VTRS).  To cut a long story short, I did not like the direction they were going in financially.   With the funds, I purchased the SCI and 63 shares of Leggett and Platt (LEG).   

The final tallies:  $2,239.18 invested and will receive 2.24 les in dividends annually from them.  The positive is they have LOTS of room to grow.  All have a decent payout ratio.

Here are the details:


  1. Your buys have been impressive. Love the SCI pickup. It's been on my shortlist for a while, but I still struggle to pick up stocks with lower yields even when everything else is sound.

    1. Thanks Jack. I had SCI on my watch list for like a year. I pulled the trigger when I jettisoned PPL. Feel good about the move.
