My auto investment for week 20 included only MCD. I also initiated a position in SDIV in my Robinhood account. The yield this week was 5.90% compared to 2.34% the week prior. The yield is up significantly because of my investment in SDIV which yields around 7%. The amount of yearly dividends added ($11.46) was lower than last week ($10.33). This adds more to my forward looking dividends that week 19 even though I only invested about $200. This also marks 20 consecutive weeks without paying commissions! This was one of my slowest weeks in a while, but in terms of dividends this was a great week. As I have seen many DGI investors mention - BORING can be good. I think this week really shows how far I have come as an investor. Slow and Steady.
Total Invested - $194.34Commissions Paid - $0.00
Current Streak - 20 weeks
Yearly Dividends Added - $11.47
I also sold my position in BUD this week, but will not write a separate article on it as it was a very small position. I wanted to close out a small position and continue to grow positions that I already have similar to my AXP sell last week.
