Bought: CVX, EMR, XOM

I purchased the following stocks on 8/20/2015 for my Roth IRA:
  • 12 shares of Chevron Corporation (CVX) at $80.4900 per share.  Dividend yield is 5.10%.
  • 22 shares of Emerson Electric Co. (EMR) at $49.2500 per share.  Dividend yield is 3.70%.
  • 12 shares of Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM) at $76.0000 per share.  Dividend yield is 3.70%.
These purchases add $127.76 to my non-taxable dividend income.

These are my first dividend growth stock purchases in my Roth IRA account!  I'm excited to begin implementing the plan I laid out on 8/18/2015.  Let the dividend compounding begin!

I will need to update my Dividends tab and my Roth IRA tab to include the dividend growth stocks I purchased today and will continue to purchase moving forward.


  1. Like the EMR buy. Many industrial names are looking a lot more attractive than in recent months and with safe dividends and a relatively high yield they look too good to pass up. I guess the same can be said for many of the energy names too. Solid buys for the long term. Near term may see some pain.

    1. Hi DivHut,

      I agree with you wholeheartedly. With the drop in the stock market recently, I figured I'd pick up some long-term dividend growth companies for my Roth IRA. Even if I do see some pain in the short-term, like most of the dividend growth investors, I plan on holding forever as long as they keep churning out those dividends.

      Hope all is well with you and the family. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  2. EMR continues to be hot this week as well. Congrats on your first ROTH purchases. These are good choices for long term IRA especially if those yields keep going up. That kind of yield untaxed will be some nice growth!

    1. Hi Adam,

      Thanks for the congrats! I'm hoping these companies will continue cranking out the dividends and increasing them year after year. I figure it's a good time to pick some up with the recent drop in stock prices.
