March Buys

Using Vanguard, Fidelity, and Loyal 3, I automatically invested $1344.99 this month compared to $1,358.47 in February.  The yield for the month is 1.77% due mostly because of fewer shares of VYM purchased and an order of $100 in FUSEX that did not seem to go through (first time I have had a problem with that).  These purchases have added $23.84 to my yearly dividend income! My current projected dividend income in the next year has also grown up to $648.50.  Any chance I make it to $1,000?!

Oh - Did I mention that I paid $0 in commission fees in the first quarter of 2016!




Do you own any of these companies?  

Thanks for stopping by!  So happy for the 1,344 page views in my first month, but really hoping I can get some discussions started - would love to learn from you all.

  1. Gotta love zero commissions. When you don't have a commission to worry about it makes investing easy, because you don't feel bad about buying only a few shares. You've added to some great companies.

      I definitely agree. No way I would have the opportunity to invest in all of these companies in one month if I was paying commissions. I see that you use Loyal3 as well. Do you use this for all of your purchases?

  2. Totally awesome that you were able to buy so many stocks without paying any commissions. These purchases will go a long way in the near future.

    1. Tawcan,

      Thank you! I cannot wait to start getting dividends on these purchases, and no better way to purchase than having it be commission free. Incredible how much your dividends have grown over the years. Consistent buying seems to do the trick!
