Here are my sharebuilder automatic investments this week (1/20/2015).
- AFL – 1.7304 email@example.com ($100)
- BBL – 2.3646 firstname.lastname@example.org ($100)
- JNJ – 0.9914 email@example.com ($100)
I invested a total of $300. I continued adding the same three shares as last week since the prices are at or below my average price. JNJ dropped close to the $100 levels after being around $106 couple of weeks ago. These purchases add $11.34 to my annual dividends. This results in 3.78% yield.
General Update: These stocks (along with the rest of the market) have gone up the last couple of days. Need to wait and decide on the stocks for next week. But these weekly purchases have really started adding up. In a matter of few months, AFL and BBL have crossed the $1,000 mark for total investments and I have invested a total of $6,000 across 8 stocks so far through the Sharebuilder weekly purchases. It is not a huge amount compared to some of the other investments, but it is good to keep investing like this on the side while researching other stocks for great value to invest a reasonable amount.
Disclosure: Long on all stocks mentioned above
