Earlier this week, I had revised my goals for 2014 for the second time. One of the main reason is due to my Sharebuilder account that I recently opened and plan to invest regularly (preferably weekly). It is great to build the portfolio slowly and steadily. $300-$400 a week over a period of time definitely adds up. Here are my sharebuilder automatic investments this week (9/16/2014).
- AFL – 1.6919 shares @59.105
- KO – 2.4134 shares @41.435
- PEP – 1.0868 shares @92.015 (new position)
I invested a total of $300 ($100 in each stock). Like I mentioned before, this is much, but something is better than nothing. I initiated position in PEP which has been on my watch list since August. With the Sharebuilder automatic investment approach, I can build the positions slowly and steadily.
These purchases add $8.32 to my annual dividends. This results in 2.77% yield. Over the course of next several weeks/months, I plan to build positions in the above stocks.
