Stock Watchlist September 2017

In the month of August I didn't add any fresh capital to my brokerage account. I had some big expenses that took a rather big bite out of my salaray. There was the holiday, the new smartphone (Huawei P10 Lite if you're wonderring), the yearly fee for the hosting of this blog, and some other small stuff. Don't worry, most of it was planned.

However, for the month of September I'm not expecting any big expenses, so that means more fresh capital is going to hit my brokerage account. Which means I'm going to be able to buy more stock :).

That's why I'm going over some companies that I'm keeping an eye on.

Ahold Delhaize (AD): My entry point on my 75 shares of this company was €21.03. At the time, I thought it was a good price. Little did I know about the future. Well, something happened: Amazon (AMZN) acquired Whole Foods (WFM). This made investors panic and let to a sell-of of retail stocks. AD is now down to €15.28. With the yield now at 3.8%, this seems like an absolute bargain.

British American Tobacco (BATS): I have been looking at this company for some time now. They're very profitable and have a very nice dividend. The 52-week high for this stock is £56.43. The stock currently trades for £47.68, which is a roughly 15.5% discount. Combined with the cheap pound sterling makes this look like an attractive entry point.

Starbucks (SBUX): SBUX was on my watchlist for August as well. I still really like this company, and would love to have it in my portfolio. The stock currently trades for $54.44, which is roughly 16.1% off of its 52-week high of $64.96. The yield is rather low, but the (dividend) growth prospects more than make up for that.

What do you think? Do you like these companies? Would love to hear your opinion. Feel free to leave a comment below! :)
