New Purchase - GPC

16 shares GPC, 2.68% yield, $36.80 annual income

I went ahead and snagged some additional GPC shares the other day.  Yeah, yeah I know.  Shares aren't exactly cheap right now (not that GPC ever is), but this one of a handful of companies I don't mind paying a premium for.  I am in fact willing to pay extra for added certainty.  Certainty of dividend growth.  (Almost) certainty of EPS growth.  I don't really like surprises which is where GPC really shines.  Far from a sexy business, yet very steady.  Anyways Genuine Parts is a company run very well.  I regularly listen to conference calls and feel quite comfortable with these guys controlling the fate of part of my portfolio.

58 consecutive years of dividend growth says a lot!

$374.03 of this purchase was reinvested dividends... yet I will add it to my cost basis unlike DRIP investors who think reinvested dividends are free... sigh...

Now that I control 31 GPC shares, it has a dividend weight of 1.15% and will pay me a total of $71.32 per year.  I have plenty of room to keep adding shares of Genuine Parts, though I might just purchase some new DE or GE shares Monday next week.  We'll see...

Sorry that I don't really respond to comments anymore.  To be 100% honest, I'm not really that interested in blogging/blogs right now.  I want to keep posting what I buy for future reference though.

Have a great weekend you guys!


  1. The commission is a bit high for only 16 shares, that adds another .50 on the buy, and another .50 on the sell if you only sell 16 shares. I have been sticking to the Fidelity no cost ETFs. It looks like you use Fidelity too.

  2. CI,

    I like that you are buying regularly especially when had some commission free trades. Building a great portfolio and finding the best value out there based on research and due diligence. Hang in there buddy! I enjoy following along.

  3. CI,

    Great purchase. It is a company I have never considered or researched in the past. Very strong dividend growth. Sometimes it is worth paying a premium for a strong dividend growth company, especially for a company that has increased for 58 years. Thanks for bringing this copany to my attention.


  4. CI,
    Yeah this is one of those long-time dividend payers that always seems to be priced at a premium. I think a lot of us would like to get our hands on it but would rather wait for a dip (even if it goes to $100 and dips to $90!). That's why I try to DRIP into good companies like this one, but I haven't done so yet here.

  5. Payday Loans Over 12 Months are particularly preferred when the borrower immediately and want to pay back the loan in easy installments. These loans are your helpful source of cash without any credit checks needs money.

  15. Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.

    I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me.
    I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (
    Reasons I chose them over the others:
    1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
    2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
    3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.
    How did they do it
    1) They first asked me to state my problem clearly and asked me a few questions. This was done to detect any physical connectivity issues with the printer.
    2) After having answered this, they confirmed that the printer and the laptop were functioning correctly.
    3) They then, asked me if they could access my laptop remotely to troubleshoot the problem and fix it. I agreed.
    4) One of the tech support executives accessed my laptop and started troubleshooting.
    5) I sat back and watched as the tech support executive was navigating my laptop to spot the issue. The issue was fixed.
    6) I was told that it was due to an older version of the driver that had been installed.

    My Experience
    I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob, i sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
    Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
    Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!!

I am so excited sharing my testimony with everyone here about how i saved my marriage and got my husband back after he have left me for another woman. I am Sonia by name from USA. My husband left me for no reason on 13th of June this years 2016 . He moved in with another woman, I felt like killing myself and I've tried so many ways and so many spell casters but all to no avail. My life was very bitter and sorrowful. Then one day, a friend of mine told me about this spell caster called Dr Unity who helped him on his own situation when his wife left him. But at first i didn't believe it because i' ve tested so many of them and it didn't work.he begged me further and told me that Dr Unity will never disappoint me, he cast real spell that work fast, so I decided to try this spell caster called Dr Unity. I contacted him and i told him my problems and gave him all the necessary information he required. He just laughed and told me never to worry that my husband will call me back in less than 28hours and i believed and he told me what to do and i did it, and after he has finished casting the spell my husband called me and started begging. He apologized and came back to me crying for a second chance. Today i and my husband live happily like never before. I can really say that this spell caster is powerful because of his work my husband is home again. I'm now the happiest woman in Texas and ever since he has shown me love like never before. Thank you Dr Unity I will forever be grateful to you.

  32. Hi everyone, I'm so excited.
    My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup,I’m extremely happy that will are living together again.
    My name is Mary Wilkie from England.
    My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at: ,you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2348071622464 ,His website: .


  33. I was in total despair when I found Dr. Todd. My life was going terrible and I didn't know if I was coming or going. I had just gone through a rough divorce, wasn't making enough money to sustain me and my children, and my 17 year old son had just gone to jail for the first time. When I talked to him, I immediately found a sense of peace. He was very honest with me and I could feel that. He also told me that everything would be okay. After my work began, things began to change. My bills were all caught up, the relationship I was in became much stronger, I was never FLAT broke, and my son was released from jail earlier than we expected!! I also completely got over the failed marriage and began to move on. And, received a better position at my job which will cause an $800 per month increase!! I felt completely comfortable with the work that was being done because I was always encouraged by Dr. Todd. is the BEST!!!!
