Recently I purchased 60 preferred shares Colony Capital H at a price of $22,48. Coupon of this preferred stock is 7,125%. As a result the yearly dividend paid on this shares is $1,78125.

At the current stock price of $22,48 this is giving me a yield of 7,92%.

The preferred H stocks are callable from 13 April 2020 so this is giving me a realistic chance that within 9 months this preferred stock will be redeemed against $25 which is over 11% above the current price.

With this purchase I add a quarterly dividend of $26,72 to my portfolio, but as a result of a possible redemption in April 2020 it’s possible that I will only enjoy the dividend payment for 3 quarters.

Purchase 10 shares AbbVie

Last week I bought 10 more shares of AbbVie at a price of $67,77. After AbbVie announced the purchase of Allergan, the stock price tanked as a result of the premium paid for the takeover.

Purchase 180 shares Annaly Capital Management

This week I purchased 180 shares Annaly Capital Managment at a price of $9,33. The current quarterly dividend of Annaly Capital is $0,25 per share so my yield on cost is 10,7%.

As a result of the purchase of 180 shares Annaly Capital my yearly estimated dividend income will increase by $180.

Annaly is relatively high risk addition to my portfolio. Annaly is a mortgage REIT and the current market with low interest rates is not favorable for mREIT companies.

Due to the marketconditions Annaly Capital reduced it’s quarterly dividend from $0,30 to $0,25. The current shareprice is basically around it’s 3 years low and I decided to start a small position in Annaly. I bought these shares knowing that the dividend can be cut again, but at the current price I’m willing to add Annally to my portfolio.

This is my 2nd purchase of a mortgage REIT this year. Earlier this year I started a position in AGNC Investment. These 2 mREIT’s are almost 3% of my total portfolio and as mREIT’s are relatively high risk, I don’t plan to increase my exposore to mREIT’s any further.

Givaudan is a Swiss manufacturer of flavors, fragrances, and active cosmetic ingredients which. Givaudan has a marketshare of approximately 25% in flavors and fragrances.

Due to the absolute high price of Givaudan shares I waited to buy this stock in April so besides my monthly deposit I could also use the dividend income from March and April to fund the purchase of this stock.

Purchase 26 shares Bayer

Today I purchased 26 shares Bayer against a price of €57,24 including costs. Bayer is down almost 50% to it’s 52 weeks high. Last month the stock price declined almost 20% after a U.S. jury found the Roundup weed killer to have been a substantial factor in a California man’s cancer.

Bayer has many quality divisions, but the stock price is under big pressure due to legal issues regarding Roundup. Bayer acquired the Roundup brand as part of the merger with Monsanto.
