New Buy LEG

Picked up one of the holdings on my watch list and further capitalized on the selloff of anything steel or aluminum related thanks to President Trump's hint at a tariff or reciprocal tax. It was hard to let Leggett & Platt (LEG) slip by so I grabbed some shares at $42.10, not quite the bottom of the day but close enough.

LEG has paid dividends for 46 years straight and with a 10 year dividend growth rate of 7.2% and dividend yield of 3.4% it fit perfectly into my income & growth profile range of 3.5% yield with min 6.7% growth.

I still have a buy order in for Brinker (EAT) but the price went in the opposite direction and climbed to $35.96. I am assuming once the ex-dividend date passes the price will drop and I can get the order filled.

After LEG & EAT I'm tapped out until the end of the month when I add more cash and receive more dividends. Next targets for a buy appear to be ABBV and/or IBM if the price drops back below $154.
