Loyal 3 & Vanguard - Week 13: Recent Buys

March 28 - April 3

My auto investments for week 13 are listed below and include VYM, YUM, BABA.  I have also included VYMI as my dividend reinvestment added to my holding, but it is an immaterial amount and adds nothing to the yearly dividend.  The yield this week was 2.03% compared to 2.6% the week prior. Quiet week of buying, but nice to see the market recover and see gains in my portfolio.  Regardless, a slow recovery would have been nice to allow me to keep averaging into my holdings.  Month of March really just flew by! Look forward to calculating my monthly dividends received!







Total Invested - $368.69
Commissions Paid - $0.00
Yearly Dividends Added - $7.48
Yield- 2.03%

Full Disclosure: Long VYM, VYMI, YUM, BABA

Will you be a buyer of YUM! Brands?

  1. Nice work picking up more YUM. This seems to be a good stock to buy this year as its future prospects look promising.

    1. IH,

      Exactly what I am hoping for. It should be great in the long run and I definitely find myself at their stores often =). Definitely, one of my large buys in recent times even though it was only $250.

  2. I also like the YUM buy. Has gone up quite a bit from their lows but I think still has lots of future growth in Asia so I call it a growth stock not trading cheaply :) . Keep buying quality dividend payers. Thanks for sharing.

    1. DivHut,

      Thank you for visiting and for your kind words! I like the way you put it =p. I will also be contributing to this company monthly, but wanted to get a head start with this investment.
