The purchase helps meet the objectives of my portfolio. The main goal is to build a reliable, steadily increasing stream of dividends over many years that can eventually be used as income for retirement.
Not only is this a world-class chip company that has come into a fair valuation range (it appears to be 12% undervalued), but its business model is one of the most clearly explained that I have ever encountered. In addition, the company has an outstanding dividend record that offers an unusual combination of offering both a fast growth rate with a good yield. On top of all of this, the company gets a high dividend safety score from Simply Safe Dividends.
