Since the last purchase I had received £59.13 for the Antofagasta shares, and £5.34 for the Pace shares. Total dividend income to date £64.47. 3% approx, not great, but better than the 0.1% most savings accounts were offering, and I had only had the money invested for a short time so far.
I needed something really safe, but also paying a good dividend. I had taken a risk with the previous purchase, and I was now thinking I had not thought it through properly.
The stock market epic was SSE and it was in the Electricity Sector, again another FTSE100 company
Originally called Scottish and Southern Energy, I knew it had always paid a good dividend. Its core purpose was to provide the energy people in Great Britain and Ireland would need in a reliable and sustainable way.
So I purchased 65 shares.
