New Purchase - HCP


Earlier this week, I set 2 limit orders that expire at end of day tomorrow:

HCP (HCP): 40 @ $36.70
Ensco (ESV): 50 @ $47.25

My limit order for HCP went through this morning, which brings my total to 80 shares.

August 2013 purchase: 40 @ $41.25 ($41.00 before commission), initial dividend yield 5.1%

Today's purchase: 40 @ $36.95 ($36.70 before commission), initial dividend yield 5.9%

My average cost per share, including commission, is $39.10. 40 shares of HCP will add $87.20 to my forward 12-month dividends, which now stands at $6,092.70.
