Highlights:

My favorite buy right now is Walmart (WMT) and IBM (IBM).  As long as the market continues to be overbought I plan to focus on buying additional shares in these 2 companies.  

Retirees: I Did Not Buy IBM To Sell; It's About The Dividend Income, Stupid

You know the bottom is close in IBM just by reading all the negative comments towards Chuck's article above.  I plan to continue buying anything below 150.

I Bought:

Over the last week I increased my annual income by $158.96

  • 12 shares of IBM (IBM) - This will increase my annual dividends by $62.40
  • 21 shares Emerson Electric (EMR) - This will increase my annual dividends by $39.48
  • 18 shares of Alliance Resources Partners LP (ARLP) - This will increase my annual dividends by $48.60
  • 2 shares of Kinder Morgan Inc (KMI) - This will increase my annual dividends by $4.08
  • 3 shares of Eaton Corp (ETN) - This will increase my annual dividends by $4.40

I made 26% gain in just around 2 months holding time.  My cash position has continued to dwindle so I decided to take profits on Intel and move the funds into ARLP.  I continue to believe that the Coal sector is the most hated on the planet.  With most coal companies down over 90% from the highs I continue to add to one of the best.  ARLP pays 12% yield and coverage on the dividend is 1.7, so I am not worried at this time of a dividend cut.  ARLP has continued to raise every year for the last decade.
