    1. Hi D&H

      Sorry about that. I see your one post now on FLO but if it doesn't have a title of Recent Buy or something similar then I probably won't catch it. I have to sift through hundreds and hundreds of posts each week so I don't have time to read through all of them. Just an FYI. I will add yours to this post tomorrow though :)

      Also I tend not to include buys of ETFs, mutual funds or funds really in general. Only individual company stocks. For some reason I though VOD was a fund when I read your post on it. Anyway my bad for that. Like I said i can add them tomorrow although I won't be updating the summaries as that takes some time.

      Thanks for double checking me!

    2. I tend to not buy ETFs and mutual funds to often only have 3 out of 40 some dividend stocks.

  2. Great resource, thanks for compiling -- I like the way you present this information!

    Take care

    1. Hi FerdiS! Thanks much for the compliment. Much appreciated and I am glad you like it.

  3. KR looks interesting. With earnings report coming up in a few weeks it could go lower.

    1. Yah you dont see that one too often. I have to investigate more myself.

  4. Very interesting information!
    I assume you have to put a lot of work in it to generate it :)

    Hopefully I'll finish my 'recent buy' post soon enough!

    Thanks for maintaining.
    Best wishes, DfS

    1. Hi DFS, glad you enjoy the info. It is a lot of work but I enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by. I will be on the lookout for your next buy! :)

  5. Always great to see what others are buying. FLO has been super popular lately. Hoping to be part of the frenzy and grab a few shares soon!

    Thank you for sharing the summary and, as always, thanks for sharing a link to our Collection of Recent Buys.

    Take care. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! AFFJ

    1. Hi AFFJ! Thanks for the comment. FLO is the talk of the town right now. Glad to continue to provide the link back to the original summary provider, your site. :) Take care, talk soon!

  6. Great work IWTRS.

    Keep building those dividends.

    1. Hi Divi cents, thanks for stopping by and commenting!
