Recent buy – 3M Company – October 2019

A new buy for my Vrijheid Fonds – 3M Company – October 2019

The markets are still volatile. And this year I already took advantage of a dip in the market for 3M. Last week I saw again a nice opportunity to average down on this great Dividend Aristocrat. And what is not to like about this industry conglomerate. 3M has a lot of patents and are still able to grow these numbers, because they spent almost 6% of their net sales in R&D.

Last year I did an analysis of 3M. If you haven’t read my analysis, please take a look at this post about 3M Company (MMM) Stock Analysis Pollie Style – 2018.

On September 24th I bought 4 additional shares of MMM at $161.44 per share (incl. fees).

With this buy I added a little bit more than €4 (after taxes) of projected dividend to my Vrijheid Fonds for 2019. Now I own 33 shares of 3M and this position produces € 145 ($161) after taxes in dividend income annually.

Again, a small step in my journey and one-step closer to my goal.

Has anyone else invested in this company recently? Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

    Great buy, Pollie. I was lucky to pick up a few shares at the beginning of October at 155 and 151 dollars to bring my average cost down to 179. Anything below 20 P/E I believe is a good buy for this high quality stock.

      I agree that with these prices MMM is a good buy. Let’s hope we get more opportunities to average down
