November is behind us, time to check in on my portfolio.
I made two purchases- both additions to existing positions.
On November 9 I added 35 more shares of Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) for a total of $1,390.
And on November 29 I bought 25 additional shares of Cardinal Health (CAH) for a total of $1,454.
With these new buys my number of Archer Daniels Midland shares is now a nice 100, while I brought my total of Cardinal Health shares to 65.
Both stocks showed price weakness and I took this opportunity to increase my positions in them. ADM and Cardinal Health are both Dividend Champions, with dividend increase streaks of 42 and 21 years respectively.
I professed my love for investing in Dividend Champions, Contenders and Challengers in my introduction post on how to get started with Dividend Growth Investing (DGI).
So how did I progress in November?
For reasons of comparison: a year ago, at the end of November 2016, my portfolio consisted of 35 positions with a total value of $47,451.
At the end of November 2017 my portfolio consisted of 47 positions with a total market value of $113,480, a Year-on-Year (YoY) increase of 139%.
