Dividend Investing, Financial News, and my Personal Portfolio.

Stock Buys


Hello All, today I decided to buy 1 share of IEP to add to my portfolio. IEP has a buy price of $32.74 with a dividend yield of 24.36% ($2.00) per quarter. I was going to wait till this stock dropped further in price but I wanted to have at least 1 in my portfolio. A couple months back it was at $19 per share and I was kicking myself that I did not buy then. I would watch this one closely as it could drop again and I do recommend buying it if it does.

Here is a little info on IEP. This was copied from fidelity.
