New position: WMT

Today I initiated a new position. I bought 5 shares of Walmart (WMT) at $67.85 per share. Including transaction fees the cost basis is $67.95. Dividend yield is 2.9%.

With this purchase my expected annual dividend income is increased with €8 to approximately €325.

WMT has come down the last month. It is already climbing back up a little bit earlier this week. In the DGI community I don't see many purchases of WMT, but it is a strong company with a great divididend history. Also WMT pays dividend in the first month of every quarter, which are the off months for my portfolio at the moment.

I now have initiated four new positions this year. That was one of the goals I set for 2017. The next months I won't be buying as much as the first 5 weeks of the year as we'll be paying off our mortgage more aggressively in the coming months.
