Here is my automatic investment for this week. S&P 500: 2083
- PAYX: 10.52 shares @ $47.55 --- Yield 3.20%
Total capital invested is $500 at 3.20%. This will increase my yearly dividends by $16.00.
I was planning on investing in oil companies again this week, but apparently my purchase was locked in on Friday instead of Monday. Sharebuilder highlights the day that the investment choices have to be made (which is usually Monday) and I don't remember last Friday being highlighted.
Luckily I saw that PAYX had dropped a bit after earnings and I at least requested that purchase last Friday. In the future, I will have a generic order ready every Friday to make sure I make some kind of purchase.
While oil prices continue to stay at depressed levels, the broader market is soldiering its way up to new all time highs. This has been a strange year to say the least. I can't wait to see what next year brings!
Companies I have on my radar for next week include CVX, XOM, BBL, RDS-b, IBM, PM, and T.
