Recent Buy – 3M Company – May 2019

A new buy for my Vrijheid Fonds – 3M Company

This month we saw a nice dip in the market. And I opened an account by a new broker and put some money on this account. And for the one who knows me, I’ll rather be on time in the market, then timing the market. So I couldn’t resist to pull my buy trigger. I averaged down one of the Dividend Aristocrats I own.

Last week I made my second buy in 2019 for my Vrijheid Fonds.

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.






This week I bought 6 additional shares of MMM at $173.10 per share (incl. fees).

With this buyI added almost €20 (after taxes) of projected dividend to my Vrijheid Fonds. Now I own 21 shares of 3M and this position produces € 85 ($95) 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 greatly appreciate any feedback, so don’t be shy and leave a comment.

    Great purchase Pollie, I’m surprised I’m not seeing more of these posts. I myself am long in 3M with sold puts too. Good to see that dividend income increase bit by bit!

    Hi Pollie, congratulations with this purchase.

    I just bought 4 extra stocks which gives me a position of 26 shares for an average price of $172.44. This produces a nice annual $149.76 in dividend income. I’ve had my eyes on this company for quite a while. In only a couple of weeks I initiated a position at $192+ and averaged all the way down. Very satisfied thus far.

      Hi Mi,

      I’ve opened an extra account by DeGiro. And Why DeGiro, because the fees are very low
