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 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.

Recent Sell

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.

June Dividend Income

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.2017ye

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.

Yearly

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.

Signed a contract to build a House

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.
