Recent Buy - General Mills, Inc. (GIS)

On Tuesday March 21, I bought 20 shares of General Mills, Inc. at $ 58.46 per share plus commission.



Tuesday morning, General Mills reported fiscal 2017 third-quarter results, which was a small disappointment in the market, and I decided to put in the bid. My offer already went through on Pre-Market and, therefore, I grabbed a few more shares of GIS. 

My overall cost basis of this position decreases from $ 59.70 to $ 59.21 per share. I totally hold now 40 shares of GIS and my yield on cost is 3.24%. You can look at my first purchase of GIS here.

Dividend Increase – Intel Corporation (INTC)



Today the Board of Directors of Intel Corporation announced a quarterly dividend increase of from $ 0.26 to $ 0.2725 per share that’s payable June 1, 2017 to holders of record May 7, 2017. This represents a 4.81% increase to regular quarterly dividends. With current price $ 35.39 (today's open), this raise brings their dividend yield to 3.08%. 

Since I own 400 shares of INTC, this will increase my yearly net dividends by $ 14.90.

That increase rises my YOC to 4.85%
