Stock Buy $KMB

It has been a while since I pulled a trigger and bought something into the portfolio, so you know I’ve been itching, but keeping myself composed seeking for further opportunities I made a buy. Kind of premature buy as I thought I got in a fair value at the time, thought only to notice a few days later could have gotten at a bit cheaper price if I would have waited a bit longer. The catalyst here is that the company is based from Dallas, Texas and the area has been going through some challenges to say the least. Though, as you know it, where there is a weakness, there is an opportunity in the stock market. Either way very happy with the pickup here, the stock should rebound once the area gets cleaned up. Plus, this one is a forever type of buy as I love the company products and I foresee many more years of dividend check coming my way.

    KMB is one of those solid dividend companies that it probably is in a lot of investor’s portfolios. I think you made a great buy Div Vet. I don’t yet own KMB, but I imagine it will one day be in my portfolio as well.

      Yeah, this is as boring of a business as they come, but dividends never bore me. 🙂 Plus, if you use tissues why not support a business by buying a peace of it if you buy the products from certain company. That is capitalist at its finest.

      Thanks for your thoughts.

    Very good buy. A good dividend aristocrat

      Much appreciated. The way I think is that people will always need to buy tissues and toilet paper, no matter what day and age it might come to be.

      Take care.
