Finally a market adjustment is upon us. For the past few months, high quality dividend paying stocks have taken a beating. I don’t think this market dip is the big correction everyone is talking about, but interest rate concerns fears of a Greek default has driven down U.S. Markets. Lucky for me, many of the great stocks I currently own are trading below value. Because of this, I decided today to average down on two stocks in my Investment Hunting portfolio.
I bought shares of Johnson And Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) and T. Rowe Price Group (NASDAQ: TROW). Both stocks were down this morning at which time averaging down seemed like a good idea to me. I initially purchased both stocks earlier this year at higher prices. Since I liked these stocks at higher prices, it only makes sense to buy more shares while they are on sale.
Averaging Down JNJ
I purchased 50 shares of JNJ in March at $101.90 per share. Today I purchased 10 shares at $97.75. These new shares will add $30 to my annual dividend income. I’ll spare you the analysis this time, but here is a link to my original JNJ analysis. JNJ has been a popular pick in the dividend investor community lately. Below are a few JNJ Analysis blog posts from the community:

Averaging Down TROW
I purchased 50 shares of TROW in April at $79.83 per share. Today I purchased 10 shares at $76.13. These new shares will add $20.80 to my annual dividend income. My TROW analysis from April still holds true today. This stock has been very hot the past few weeks. Many of the bloggers I respect and follow have purchased TROW and written their own analysis on the company. TROW blog posts:

Where do I find all of these links to recent buys and dividend stock analysis? I’m glad you asked. A Frugal Family’s Journey keeps a list of recent blogger buys and stock analysis. These two list are extremely helpful and I appreciate the time AFFJ puts into managing them. If you have not visited this blog I suggest you do and bookmark it for future reference.
