Yesterday I did my first purchase of the year. While expenses are high in the end of December and the beginning of January, I was able to do a small purchase of AbVie (ABBV). I bought 3 shares at $62.75 a share. Including transaction fees the cost base will be $62.92.
ABBV pays $0.64 per quarter the yield on costs will be just over 4%, 4.07% to be exact.
Since ABBV will go ex dividend at January 11th, I will nicely pick up the dividend. Payout will be in Fruary. This buy increases my forward 12 month dividend with $7,68 before taxes. After taxes and at the current exchange rate this will be €6.28 bringing it to about €280.
