Weekly Purchases


I went with the shotgun approach today as I haven't made any weekly purchases this month. I think I picked up some good companies! Here they are.

  • KMI:  8.09 shares @ $30.90 --- Yield  6.34%
  • GM:  8.77 shares @ $28.50 --- Yield  5.05%
  • PAYX:  5.64 shares @ $44.36 --- Yield  3.79%
  • PG:  3.53 shares @ $70.90 --- Yield  3.74%
  • KO:  6.41 shares @ $39.00 --- Yield  3.38%
  • JNJ:  2.65 shares @ $94.36 --- Yield  3.18%
  • WMT:  3.82 shares @ $65.38 --- Yield  3.00%
  • UNP:  3.01 shares @ $83.10 --- Yield  2.65% 

Total capital invested is $2000 ($250 in each company). The combined yield is 3.89% and will increase my yearly dividends by $77.80.

New Purchase --- IBM


Today I added to my IBM position.

  • IBM: 13 shares @ $143.44 --- Yield  3.63%

Total capital invested is $1871.67 which will increase my yearly dividends by $67.60.

I haven't made any weekly purchases this month yet, but intend to make several tomorrow. I hate letting the $12 go to waste! :-)

Exciting times are upon us. Be careful PUT sellers

New Purhase --- CVX


Well I decided to add more shares of Chevron today.

  • CVX:  30 shares @ $76.89 --- Yield  5.57%

Total capital invested is $2313.65 which will increase my yearly dividends by $128.40.

At this rate CVX will be yielding over 6% very soon! Shell is already over 7% and XOM is over 4%. Great times to keep adding energy names. Blood is all over this sector.

New Purchase --- BBL


Today I added to my BBL position.

  • BBL: 100 shares @ $33.89 --- Yield  7.32%

Total capital invested is $3395.95. My yearly dividends should increase by $248.00 assuming BBL maintains its current dividend.

This is my only purchase so far this month. I will continue to take it easy, but will buy when something compelling comes along. WMT and CVX are at insane levels right now.

Taking a break for a while...


Some major life events have taken place recently, so I will not be making any posts for a while. I will still be here following everyone and will come back some time hopefully towards the end of this year. Until then, keep fighting hard for FI!!!

Weekly Purchases


Here are my automatic investments for this week.

  • CVX:  2.73 shares @ $91.37 --- Yield  4.68%
  • UNP:  2.61 shares @ $95.43 --- Yield  2.31%

Total capital invested is $500 ($250 in each company) and the combined yield is 3.29%. My yearly dividend income will increase by $16.45.

Due to unforeseen expenses popping up, I had to cut back on this week's purchases. I may buy a larger position tomorrow. TD has been in the $38 range, NOV could go below $40 any time and everything else energy related continued to get hammered.

Here are some other companies that I am watching closely....DD, VZ, KMI, JNJ, CAT, BBL, and ESV.
