Recent Buy - V.F. Corporation (VFC)

Yesterday May 31, I bought 20 shares of V.F. Corporation at $ 53.65 per share plus commission.

My overall cost basis of this position increases from $ 52.88 to $ 53.12 per share. I totally hold now 85 shares of VFC and my yield on cost is 3.16%. You can look at my first purchase of VFC here.

Details of my purchase: 

With current quarterly dividend ($ 0.42), my last purchase 20 shares of VFC increases € 22.30 ($ 25.03) of expected annual net dividend income. At today's exchange rate, this purchase will increase my portfolio projected annual net dividend income approximately to € 10,730.00. After this acquisition, VFC's weight of my portfolio is about 1.08% and its share of future annual dividend income is approximately 0.88%. I'm planning slowly to build up VFC's share of my portfolio, if the price remains at these levels.

    Solid branded company, love the history of the yield. Congrats on the additional position of VF!


  2. Hey DivHawk, word of advice from someone with intimate knowledge of this company, be careful. Internally, there is no real plan for growth and much of the business is looking to be divested. Company has a great historical track record, just be weary of the future.

    Annual report I read painted a much more rosy picture than should be expected.

  3. Nice buy. Good addition with solid dividend history. I don't own any myself currently but see a lot of other members buying it as well.
