March 2018 - Investment 22
Since my last investment I had also received the following dividends:
£31.92 from GlaxoSmithKline
£30.51 from National Grid Plc
£29.97 from BT
Additionally since the last investment I have been trying decide which my next investment should be. The market has dropped generally, and I have quite a few existing holdings producing good dividend returns against the costs of my original investment. Some are showing capital losses, so it could be considered a good time to top up. Especially as the reason for investing is for long term dividend return over capital profit. Generally the news from the companies I am watching have not been positive enough for me to be confident to choose one particular company over another, so I will just have to keep watching each one until I am either ready to invest or find something else which catches my eye.
By mid March 2018 the market was still very volatile, so I decided to take a look at a share I already had, which was not doing very well even thought it was producing a good dividend return. So I decided to top on on National Grid. I just used the balance of cash I had in my trading account to purchase another 137 shares, bringing my new holding to 334 shares.
