Purchase #9 - A New Position - Exxon-Mobil

If you’ve been following along, you probably would have guessed that my next purchase would have been more Ford.  Well, after just posting about my mothers and uncles holding in (XOM), and having them on my watch list since I started investing, and them being a Dividend Aristocrat and all, I decided it was time to start a position with them.
Since I’m still not quite debt free, I only have $100 allocated in my budget for this paycheck to go in my TD Ameritrade account.  So I only was able to purchase 1 share at $82.69, but I’m excited to start this position.

Also, their ex-dividend date is today.  I’m not sure if my purchase made it in time.  Do they count it at the beginning of the day or the end of the day?


  1. Congrats on the purchase Brian. XOM is in my portfolio too. And, for some reason, is 12% of my overall portfolio. So, yea, I'm a fan of this purchase.

  2. Thanks. I will add to this position for sure.
