Stock I bought today 2/26/2016

Yesterday I posted my short list to pick from for my purchase.

Today I purchased DEO - Diageo plc.

 I noticed not so many people know about this stock.

Business Summary from Yahoo Finance

It offers scotch and Irish whiskey, gin, vodka, rum, beer and spirits, Irish cream liqueurs, wine, Raki, tequila, Canadian and American whiskey, Cachaça, and brandy, as well as adult beverages and ready to drink products.

The company was founded in 1886 and is headquartered in London, the United Kingdom.

I had this stock on my watch list for a while.

I like that at this moment this stock is trading close to lowest in 52 weeks. 

I also like price target summary (yahoo)

Price Target Summary
Mean Target:125.14
Median Target:123.78
High Target:137.00
Low Target:116.00

I believe people will drink alcohol good or bad times.

Even if dividend yield 2.48% not so high, in my opinion overall this is a great stock to own and looks like a good addition to my portfolio.

I plan to make more purchases next week, so I will keep posting.

Thanks for reading.

Project: Dividend Stocks for Teenager January Dividends update

I wrote how we started Dividend Stocks portfolio for my daughter and keep track of our progress here.

In January we purchased RY, which was from my suggestion list and AMZN, which was her own choice.

In January she got dividends just from one company 

LHO $18.72

Thanks for reading and please share your thoughts.

Project: Dividends Stocks for Teenager - She picked her own stock

When I started this project I basically was pushing my daughter to pick stocks. 

Now when she switched her major to Accounting, she started studying Financial Statements of different companies.

So after one week in Accounting class she approached me and demanded to invest into Amazon stock. 

And I purchased 2 shares of Amazon stock for her. 

I know this is not a dividend stock but I thought that she can have at least one stock in her portfolio, which truly was her choice. :)

Thanks for reading and I will keep you updated.
