After the results were announced ,GWW went down more than 7% ,i was looking to average down the shares from my high price of 185/share.With that said i added 40 shares at different prices yesterday.Maybe i should have waited little more,could have gotten better price.
- 7/19/2017 Bought 25 GWW @ $169.914 $4,247.85
- 7/19/2017 Bought 15 GWW @ $164.3856 $2,465.78
These are the same funds from selling the NVDA.This will add another $204 to annual dividend fund.With the new purchases my average came down to 177.
Today i sold out my position in NVDA,which was initiated last month. From the time i brought it was not a stock that i was going to hold it for long time.I was hoping to hold till my Down-payment for the house.But i was not comfortable with volatility on the stock.
There were no Fees as i had 10 free trades from my broker.Total Profit was $141.37
Now i will keep it in watch list to see if there a price i would like to get back in.

Another month in books and it marks the end of second quarter.This Pie chart refers to monthly Dividend Income. June is my second Highest month so far after March,I had one additional company pay me in march which is semi yearly.
The total Dividend Income received for the month of June is $446.In the state of Texas ,its almost 61 hours of pay.Instead of me or my spouse working ,my money is working for us.This $446 will definitely cover the grocery Bill for the us and maybe some other small utility. This is the second month in 2017 where i crossed $400 in dividend payments.
Compared to last June it went from 326 to 446,some of it is due to dividend increases and other is due to new capital invested in the market.
So how did you guys do this month,the numbers should be nice,as the months of March,June,September and December are some of the biggest payment months.
This morning I bought 10 shares of Kroger at 23.16/share ,this name popped up on my list as Dividend Diplomats bought the stock.Dividend income from last 2 months is used to buy these stocks.
It costed me 4.95 to make this purchase and this will add another $5 to my annual dividend fund.
I have 2 buy periods in my 401K plan, this is the second buys for this month.
I initiated positions in 2 new funds PABGX and VTMGX.With that mentioned,here are buys for this period.
- $230 worth of VFIAX.
- $78 worth of VIMAX,PABGX.
- $156 worth of VSIAX.
- $234 worth of VTMGX.
In addition to these i added 3 shares of BBL to average down my share price from high 40s.
A total of 890 dollars was invested during this time period.
So what are you guys buying now.
2 of the companies in which i have shares announced dividend increases.
- TGT increased from .60 to 0.62 for 3.3% hike.I own 54 shares so its additional $1.04 for me.
- CAT increased from 0.77 to 0.78 .I own 50 shares so additional $.50 for me.
Finally after 3 months of search we found a builder and Plan that fit into our liking . As the Frisco real estate market is hot and houses which satisfy our requirements were tough to meet,for examples in this community out of the 30 or so lots available for this particular builder we found just 1 to be perfect for our criteria and 2 more workable.
This was above my upper limit ,but with builder incentives and realtor cashback we made it work.During the 3 months we visited close to 10 to 12 builders and different subdivisions,Some of them were above price range or the price/sq ft was above the market ,or not close by. We were about to sign with the same builder,but a different subdivision and right at the moment i receive email form this property that they are opening new subdivision and would you like to visit, 5 mins later i reply with a time to visit and someone else already Booked that slot.
Even before we visited we prepared looking at the plot online, model to save time,we were so ready to sign the house without any price negotiation .
There were some hiccups like lot premium that was not on website .
After signing the house we went through design experience which will be another post.
Reporting last buys for the month of May .

Name may sound that i am not doing frugal living by trying out expensive services,but after you read this you can see the deal . Also i love to try all new services like this ,when we were in California,i tried Amazon Prime Now,Grub hub,Hello fresh and Winc Wines.Most of the times, there is really good discount for trying out the first time.
As many of you are aware that T-Mobile is doing T-mobile Tuesday freebies.Some of the freebies are really nice like $2 movie tickets, 0.25 cents of gas/gallon etc.This week they were offering $10 off groupon local and i started searching how to use it on groupon and then i Found this deal which was offering 40 dollars worth of groceries for $15 Bucks.
Even better was is there is no service delivery fees for 1 year,it seems they might recently entered the Market or so. Currently few stores are in my market like Kroger,tomthumb or Costco.
We decided to try from Costco as we don’t have Costco membership.There is definitely mark up on the prices by instacart.Ordering was easy and time slots /availability was good.
Overall I think we got 50% or more discount on the price.I don’t think I will order again with service.It might work people who don’t like to shop or have time to shop.
So what other services did the DGI community try out.
