Rethinking Disney

In my last entry I discussed building a foundation with a moat around it.  One of my “foundation” companies listed was Disney.  While Disney is a strong, proven company, the more I think about the low, annual dividend the more heartburn I have with the idea of making DIS a cornerstone of my foundation.  I’d still like Disney to find a home in my portfolio someday but I’m leaning towards moving DIS from my foundation and replacing it with PG.  PG pays quarterly and is currently yielding 3.2%.  With that said I am not saying “goodbye” to DIS but I am saying “see you later”.  Hopefully, I see DIS before Star Wars VII hits theaters in December 2015.

My Investments (that pay dividends)

Here’s a quick list of my dividend paying investments (stocks & ETFs).  Not all of these consistently pay dividends and some of these I invested in prior to my love of dividends.

– Nike (NKE)

– Starbucks (SBUX)

In the future I plan on investing more in stocks/ETFs that have consistent quarterly or monthly dividend payouts.
