lucas03 dividend portfolio

wow, how did you get 400% yield in LMT? Also you need to mark your portfolio public so others can see that. How old are you?

I bought LMT at about in Sept of 2012. It was around 80 dollars a share as I recall. That has been the highest performing stock, although CAT (which I have sold) and MCD doubled quickly. I have also had some real dogs as well like OMI and MHLD.

I am 52. This is 100 percent in tax deferred accounts. Well, actually tax advantaged as part is in Roth 401k/IRA.

just bought 50 shares of CTL at 11.33, read a bit about their optical cables in US and seemed a good buy. Though it's not in a CCC list Sad

It's not on the CCC list because CTL has cut the dividend twice in the last ten years, and by 53% in March.

It has a junk BB credit rating and negative growth.

Don't be enamored by the 8.8% yield, it's a trap.

yeah, I've read an article even though there are problems, they have big market share in optical network. Did not buy that because of yield Smile But probably should have looked further

I added 4 shares to my XOM position at $70. Order has been there for some time, but it did not reach 70. I had 2 shares at 81 since Feb 2019 and 2 shares since March 2018 at 75

Good for you!  Patience is how you win this game longterm.

Just bought 10 shares of MO and 10 shares of KHC to lower average cost basis. I wanted to do 1 buy per month, as I expect more problems in the upcoming year and wanted to stack up cash for future buys, but these were hard for me to pass by.
