Here are my final purchases for this week.
- UNP: 22 shares @ $68.92 --- Yield 3.20%
- AXP: 28 shares @ $54.82 --- Yield 2.12%
Total capital invested is $3065.10. The combined yield on these purchases is 2.64% and will add $80.88 to my yearly dividends.
This should conclude my purchases for this week and maybe even this month. AXP is taking a beating today and I have been interested in picking up shares for a while. I will just nibble here and add more if it drifts down into the $40s.
UNP, like all the railroads, is still under heavy selling pressure and this marks my second purchase this month. Choo Choo!!!
