Loyal3, Robinhood, and Vanguard Buys - Week 35: Recent Buys (AAPL, BRK.B, FLO, MCD, MSFT, VYM)

August 29 - September 4

My investments for week 35 included VYM, AAPL, FLO, MCD, MSFT, BRK.B.  The yield this week was 2.58% compared to 2.74% the week prior.  The yield is lower this week as I made an investment into BRK.B which does not pay a dividend.  The amount of yearly dividends added ($8.55) was higher than last week ($4.12) as the yield was similar but I invested double the money.  All of these purchases were part of my automatic buys except for FLO, which I bought to round my position to 50 shares.  This marks 35 consecutive weeks without paying commissions! Have a wonderful labor day weekend!



Total Invested - $331.85
Commissions Paid - $0.00
Current Streak - 35 weeks
Yearly Dividends Added - $8.55
Yield- 2.58%

Full Disclosure: Long VYM, AAPL, FLO, MCD, MSFT, BRK.B, ALL HOLDINGS IN MY PORTFOLIO
