Wednesday:
Added to XOM, PG, KO, MO, O
Opened NKE, MDT, BUD, DIS and Nestle (NSRGY)
Nestle is on the Pink Sheet, a European giant in Packaged Food and powdered liquids. Sales are about 90B and Mcap 270B. No idea how present it is in the USA. Memory of pre-school life before 1970 knows Nestle as a brand between Disney and ALDI.

Many great purchases there.  I have never purchased Nestle due to an annual dividend and taxes.  I can't get myself to add to Altria due to declining volumes and PM is my largest position.

I have been adding MRK, KMB, IBM, T, PG, SBUX, and RDS-A in taxable account.

You've been busy. Nice mix of stocks there!

Thanks.
This added dividends worth 1/2 month of expenses to the retirement portfolio, took a week or two to polish the shopping list.
Now 41 tickers in the portfolio, up from 14 in Dec'16. In June I switched from buying full postions to 1/2 and 1/4.

Nestle: I thought about buying in Frankfurt or Zurich. But they keep a lot of taxes. I hope, Interactivebrokers will keep just 15% from RDA/RDS.
Annual dividend: not nice, but our family lives on an annual budget, so we will handle that.
MO/PM: Credit Rating, CCC and debt inclined the dice.

I was under the impression that there was only a 15% withholding for RDS.A shares and none for the RDS.B.  I own RDS.B in my traditional and Roth IRA's but if I select to reinvest I would be given the A shares so I just take the cash.  I own RDS.A in my taxable but with the removal of the scrip dividend I am uncertain which class is better to own now.
