Here are my sharebuilder automatic investments this week (12/9/2014).
- BBL – 6.7348 firstname.lastname@example.org
I invested my usual $300 weekly amount in just 1 stock this time. Couple of reasons:
- BBL has declined close to 7% since I initiated the position last week. Thought I could use the drop to add more shares.
- There are 5 Tuesdays this month – which means 5 trading days for automatic trades in sharebuilder. My advantage plan gives me 12 trades for the month. Since there are 5 trading days, I have to spread the 12 trades without going over.
These purchases add $16.70 to my annual dividends. This results in 5.56% yield. I will continue to review the prices to decide on the trades for next week. But most likely will stay between BBL, JNJ and KO since KO has dropped a bit in the last few days.
