A New Buy

After researching several articles and sources of high dividend yield stocks, I decided to make a recent purchase to add to my portfolio.  AT&T was my decision for my second investment (Ford was first).  It has a great return of 5.56%, and it’s a “Champion” which means it’s been handing out steady dividends for many, many years.  I see AT&T as a solid company and I don’t think they are going anywhere for a long time.  I was able to purchase 7 shares at 33.81.  T’s 52 week range is 31.74 – 37.48, so I acquired it at a fair price.  T has shown positive gain over the years, and has remained fairly steady over the past 5 years.  I am comfortable with this purchase, and am looking forward to seeing some dividend returns to be DRIPped into this stock!  I actually will be receiving my first dividend on Feb 2nd already, as they announced the ex-div date as next Wednesday!
