My Latest Buys: WDR, ZTR

stock_buy
There’s really not much to write about, as I only made two stock buys for April. First, I added 100 shares (at $11.75 each) of Virtus Global Dividend & Income Fund (NYSE:ZTR) to my dividend investing portfolio for a total of 300 shares of ZTR. Next I bought 40 more shares of Waddell & Reed Financial (NYSE:WDR) at $16.7957 per share, bringing my total number of WDR shares to 200.

These two stock buys will add $17.43 to my projected average monthly dividend income, which is a good step towards recovering from the various dividend cuts my portfolio suffered so far this year.

      Thanks BHL! Yes, every step forward, no matter how small, is a step that’s in the right direction. It may take me a little longer to reach my goals, but I’ll get there.

    You should look at these NRZ CIM MRCC FDUS and OHI
    OHI is the best because it raises it dividends a penny a quarter Cim had a 2 cent a Quarter raise and NRZ did also. Will help combat some of the cuts you have. OHI is the lowest yielded around 7 percent and its dropped some from a week ago
    If things go right I’m thinking about an OHI purchase next week

      Thanks for visiting Doug! I’ll certainly look into each of the stocks you suggested. I agree that having some dividend growth stocks in one’s portfolio is a good way to mitigate some of the damage from dividend cuts.
