Recent buy – 3M Company – February 2020

A new buy for my Vrijheid Fonds, I have added some extra 3M.

If we look at the markets the last two months, it is fair to say that they are still volatile. And with volatile markets I always keep in mind the saying: Short-term volatility is a long-term opportunity.

Last week I saw again a nice opportunity to average down on a great Dividend Aristocrat. I have averaged down on the industry conglomerate 3M. 3M is one of my favorite Dividend Aristocrats I own. So, if I see an opportunity to buy some extra shares, I will (almost) always pull my buy trigger.

A couple of days ago I have updated my analysis of 3M. For my 3M analysis Pollie-style, just read my post 3M Company (MMM) Stock Analysis Pollie Style – 2020.

On February 21st I bought 6 additional shares of MMM at $157.59 per share (incl. fees).

With this buy I added a little bit more than €20 (after taxes) of projected dividend to my Vrijheid Fonds for 2020. Now I own 43 shares of 3M and this position produces € 191 ($207) 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? I appreciate any feedback greatly!

    Pollies –

    Anytime you buy a dividend aristocrat – has to be an excellent purchase : ) Though I didn’t pick them up, I did pick up UPS, VIAC, GD, LYB and a few others – not big purchases, but a few!

    Hey Pollies,

    3M is a great company. I have just initiated a new position in 3M over the past couple of months. With this recent volatility, I couldn’t help but add to the position at these discounted prices. I guess great minds do think alike!!! Nice addition. Thanks for sharing!
