Summary of Recent Buys - Week of November 1

My weekly summary of buys from around the blogging community for the week of November 1, 2015.

This weeks totals:

  • 21 Total Purchases(-18 from last week)
  • 15 Uniquely Different Stocks Bought (-13 from last week)
  • 15 Different Bloggers Posted Buys(-6 from last week)
A total of $25,485 was invested in dividend stocks this week. About a $2.5k decrease from last week.

Bloggers increased forward yearly dividends by  $1,394! That's a 5.5% Average Yield on Investment!

I have charted the weekly S&P % Return vs Amount of Money invested in the market for that week. Is there a correlation here? Does it matter? Probably not, but its fun to look at the data.

Top Purchased Stocks this week:

  1. KMI - 3 Buys
  2. HCP, OKE, POT, BBL  - 2 Buys
KMI was the winner again this week but with dividend yields at current prices, I am not surprised to see any of these names in the list. KMI, HCP, OKE, POT and BBL ALL have yields over 6% and all are over 7% except for HCP. Incredible!

Here is the summary of stocks, amount invested, and which blogger posted the buy with a link to the post:

  1. I am not surprised. This is good data. The market mostly recovered with consumers and healthcare leading the way. For DGI investors we will hold off until the next dip and buy the quality companies on sale.

    1. Hi D4s, I agree with your assessment. It will be interesting to watch the trend moving forward. I am so shocked to see such high dividend yields on so many great names. My watchlist looks like a dream right now as far as current yields. Thanks for stopping in and commenting!

  2. Nice summary. I went the health REIT route this week with HCN and VTR added. From the looks above it seems that HCP is getting the love.

    1. Hi DivHut, You will see this week that HCP tops the list for LAST weeks purchases so it is really hot right now!
