  1. Keep up the good work. Earning four digits in a month passively is always nice. JNJ is our common stock for the month. Any new “weird” stocks on your radar that I never heard of for your next buy? Always love reading your picks.

    • Thanks DivHut. I thought we would have more of an overlap, esp in the dividend stocks space, but I guess a lot of my holdings are Canadian companies.

      Yup…a new “weird” one just got added to the portfolio a couple of weeks ago — will be posting a ‘Recent Buy’ on it soon.
