Here are my sharebuilder automatic investments this week (2/3/2015).
- AFL – 1.7115 email@example.com ($100)
- JNJ – 0.9858 firstname.lastname@example.org ($100)
- T – 2.9356 email@example.com ($100) new position
I invested a total of $300. I continued to add AFL and JNJ from last week. I was not planning to add AFL, but it did drop over 3% between last purchase and Monday. But of course, it did increase again Tuesday along with the rest of the market. I still got it less than my average price. I continued to add JNJ as the stock stays around $100 mark. I would like it to drop even more, but I plan to add more as long as the price is less or around the $100 mark.
I did not continue to add BBL for couple of reasons. The price has increased quite a bit in the last few days and the price is almost 10% over my average price. Also, like I mentioned last week, I have a reasonably sized position in BBL and would like to hold off adding to it while I build or initiate the positions in other stocks. I will add more BBL if the price drops from the current levels.
I initiated a position in AT&T (T). I don’t have any exposure in any telecom stocks and have been looking to add T and/or VZ for a while now. I decided to initiate position in T and I plan to build the position slowly over the next few weeks/months.
These purchases add $10.95 to my annual dividends. This results in 3.65% yield.
Disclosure: Long on all stocks mentioned above
