Summary of Recent Buys - Week of March 21, 2016

My weekly summary of buys from around the blogging community. If you have made purchases this week and do not see them on this list, please let me know and I will add you to my list of sites I monitor for buy posts. 

After a huge week, this week slows down a bit with the buys and I did not find any sells (correct me if I am wrong). Still 22 total transactions happened throughout the community, which is down from the previous, but still strong. DIS topped the list this week so I included the FAST Graphs data chart on the dividend growth. It is pretty impressive the past few years. Take a look below as well as all the other results:

This weeks totals:

  1. Thanks for putting this together. We've seen it on our collection as well but looks like buying activities have certainly subsided since the beginning of the year. But then again, the basement bargain hunting is certainly a greater chore these days with the market in a slight recovery.

    Also, thanks for the continued mention and credits. Best wishes! AFFJ

    1. Thanks friend! It has been an interesting year so far. I look forward to seeing what is coming up! Take care.

  2. Interestingly enough I have been following DIS closely and it is fascinating to see that DIS features prominently on the recent buys of many investors.

    1. It is a solid company and worth the follow! If they move to a quarterly dividend and hike it up to 3%, it will probably draw even more investors. I look forward to that day! Thanks for stopping in and commenting!

  3. I loved seeing WFC all over the map this month. The only reason I'm not on that boat is that I saw one or two others that I wanted first and WFC didn't quite hit the price point I wanted it at. Maybe next month! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Dividend Reaper,

      Thanks for the comment and your thoughts. I took a look at it too and it looks attractive, but I had my eyes set on others as well. Its a great company to hold though for sure. Take Care!
