Loyal 3 & Vanguard - Week 18: Recent Buy

May 2 - May 8

My auto investments for week 18 are listed below and include VYM, WMT, BABA, and AMZN.  I also initiated positions in T and VZ which I hope to grow in the future and took advantage of the solid yield.  The yield this week was 3.82% compared to 2.73% the week prior.  This is the highest yield I have had for a week so far this year!  In addition, I have stopped my auto contributions into many growth stocks in hopes to grow my dividends faster and reach my goal of $750 of dividends earned. The amount of yearly dividends added ($32.44) was lower than last week ($36.65).  This almost totals last week despite investing almost $500 more during week 17. This also marks 18 consecutive weeks without paying commissions!  I am writing this a little later in the week than I had hoped, but it was a busy weekend.  Extremely excited for my new positions in T and VZ. 





Total Invested - $848.81
Commissions Paid - $0.00
Current Streak - 18 weeks
Yearly Dividends Added - $32.44
Yield- 3.82%

Full Disclosure: Long VYM, T, STAG, VZ, WMT, BABA, AMZN, ALL HOLDINGS IN MY PORTFOLIO

Which do you like better T or VZ?  Are you invested in either/both of them?
