Final Sharebuilder photo --- PFE


Today I brought my PFE share count over 400.




  • PFE:  50 shares @ $32.58 --- Yield  3.93%

Total capital invested is $1636.20 and will add $64 to my yearly dividends.

As noted this will be my last photographed purchase. Technically this photo is an account photo, but it's the last photo nonetheless.

I'm been made aware on numerous occasions during the past year and a half that there are different apps, screenshot techniques, etc that are infinitely better than sticking a fucking camera phone in front of the screen and downloading it via my phone (which believe it or not rarely works on the first attempt). Yet, I continue to take my photo purchases and post my buys....NO MORE!!

In 2014 & 2015 I just posted my weekly automatic purchases as well as regular purchases on the blog. One day someone emailed me and told me that my purchases were fictitious. The funny thing is it would be impossible for me to create accurate automatic buy prices each week as there are numerous Sharebuilder users who may make the same purchases occasionally. It would be impossible for me to predict the price to the penny each week. I guess the fictitious part of my posts were the dollar amounts. I don't know.

Stupid shit like this shouldn't bother me in the big scheme of things, but I felt it necessary for everyone else to show that I legitimately make these investments (good ones and bad) and I truly put my money where my mouth is.

So as you can see by the photo, I have just under $250,000 currently invested and plan to invest another $250,000 in the next two years. 

I have also been considering stopping my future investments in Cap One Sharebuilder and starting a second brokerage account soon.

Forward dividends are now $9400.00

  1. I always say that your buys keep inspiring me on my own journey. Keep pushing ahead. No sitting on cash for you just building up that passive income stream!

    1. DivHut,

      It's a crazy and chaotic journey at times, but no different than many other life adventures.

  2. Why not make a screenshot instead of a photograph instead? You can use the snipping tool on windows and just copy and paste it in a website like imgur.com

  3. Great job. Your PFE shares are adding up. I'm watching PFE right now. If the price drops, I'm buying.

    1. David Leslie,

      No I actually like Sharebuilder. I just don't want too money invested in one firm. I'll probably add another $50 or so and then look for a second account.

    1. BudgetBuddha,

      Thanks for the comment! I'll miss them too. I'll probably still use them in the dividend summary posts each month.
