Weekly Sharebuilder Purchases

Here are my automatic investment for this week.

  • ESV:  12.37 shares @ $52.47 --- Yield  5.72%
  • PM:  7.64 shares @ $84.97 --- Yield  4.43%
  • PAYX:  15.43 shares @ $42.06 --- Yield  3.61%
  • GE:  25.37 shares @ $ 25.58 --- Yield  3.44%

Total capital invested is $2600 ($650 in each company).  The combined yield of these purchases is 4.3% and they will add $111.80 to my yearly dividends.

100/week Challenge---Week 14   S&P 500 1979

I was going to buy mores shares of Amerigas (APU), but it has been on a mini run recently and Ensco (ESV) has come down and looked like a better buy.  Phillip Morris (PM) and General Electric (GE) have been lagging all year and still look pretty good at these levels.

For the rest of the year I will be working on improving the quality of my holdings.  This does not mean I won't look at some lower tier companies that have fallen on tough times....Conagra (CAG) and Maxim Integrated (MXIM) are two companies that I will be watching closely.  I also have some smaller positions in Waste Management (WM), General Motors (GM), and Baxter (BAX) that I want to complete positions in. 

Companies on my radar for next week include Boeing (BA), General Electric (GE), Coke (KO), Procter and Gamble (PG), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Altria (MO), and McDonald's (MCD), ExxonMobil (XOM).  John Deere (DE) is also starting to look interesting.


  1. Dear Blog readers and especially the young ones,

    $ 2600 a week to buy dividend stocks is reserved for the few .

    Dear readers here is the secret: “” Steady Compounding “”

    There is nothing in the world like compound interest.
    If you put $ 2000 a year into an Stock account when you are nineteen and
    continuing just for eight years, until you are twenty-seven, when you retire at sixty-five the
    This assumes you keep the money working at 10% percent per annun compounded.

    But which stocks should I invest ?.
    Read first the dividend blogs like this one.
    Open the site: http://www.longrundata.com/

    And enter the stock symbols I provide you and see what your annualized total return could have been in the past.

    Symbol: Altria Group Inc. (MO)
    Philip Morris International, Inc. (PM)
    Chevron Corporation (CVX)
    McDonald's Corp. (MCD)
    Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L.P. (BIP) my tip !!

    Happy dividend investing,
    Met vriendelijke groet,

      Great point about starting early and allowing time and compounding to do the heavy lifting. I would also add that by starting early you develop the habit of saving at a high rate. High savings rates are more important than anything if you want to achieve financial independence.

      I would also add that being laser focused on debt elimination/avoidance is mandatory for any significant forward progress toward your goals.
