RECENT BUY : V.F. Corporation (NYSE: VFC)

We Recently Purchased The Following:

V.F. Corporation (VFC)
Purchased 7 shares of VFC on 2/3/2017 at $49.58
Total Spent: $347.05; added $11.76 in forward dividends.

On January 26, we posted that we purchased 8 shares of V.F. Corporation for our Family's Dividend Stocks Portfolio.  At the time, we already felt that VFC was attractively priced.  Needless to say that when the stock price dipped below $50, we took the opportunity to add a few more shares to our current holdings.  

On February 3, we decided to pull the trigger and add 7 more shares of V.F. Corporation to our Family's Dividend Stocks portfolio.  So with our recent purchase, we now own 15 total shares in VFC that provides us with a total of $25.20 in dividends per year.  We plan to continue watching VFC to see if it dips any further. 

From our research, we are attracted by the 3% plus yield, manageable payout ratio and the long dividend history that VFC offers.  We believe that VFC is a good long term hold that offers a nice risk/reward ratio. Nevertheless, we understand that everyone has their own risk tolerance and stock screening methods. With that said, please make sure to do your own research when buying any stocks.
