Happy Day before Easter to you, I wanted to take a moment to share what I believe to be a great move. I am really high on Microsoft and believe they will be around forever, just not at the $100 mark. I sold 5 shares at $96 for a total of $483.80.
Here is what I bought;
Vanguard Real Estate ETF $75.70
Avalon Bay $160.99
Arbor Realty Trust $8.78
3 shares of Coke a Cola $$45.02 each
Kinder Morgan $16.32
2 shares of Global Medical REIT $7.10
Those 5 shares of Microsoft paid me $2.10 in dividends each quarter. Lets compare that to what I bought by percentage;
Vanguard Real Estate ETF 4.29%
Avalon Bay 3.18%
Coke A Cola 3.22%
Arbor Realty 8.2%
Kinder Morgan 2.76%
Global Medical 9.756%
As you can see, just about all of these shares pay dividends at a higher percentage than Microsoft. I intend to purchase Microsoft stock again once the price comes under $80.
