Loyal3, Robinhood, and Fidelity - Week 21: Recent Buys

May 23 - May 29

My auto investment for week 21 included only PEP, SUBX, UL, and FUSEX.  I added to my position in SDIV in my Robinhood account.  The yield this week was 3.40% compared to 5.90% the week prior.  The yield down slightly as I SDIV (which yields 7% was a larger part of my purchases last week).  The amount of yearly dividends added ($11.29) was lower (but barely) than last week ($11.46).  This also marks 21 consecutive weeks without paying commissions!  Slow and Steady.

I am sorry for the late post as my Memorial Day Weekend was very busy.  I would also like to apologize as my monthly summaries will be delayed this month (closer to the middle or late part of June.  Truly appreciate all of the bloggers that are able to post timely as I see this month being a challenge for me because of prior commitments.  Let's see how my portfolio does as I focus on other aspects of my life while watching myself make money and invest money without any effort on my part.  Cheers and have a great few weeks!

Total Invested - $332.08
Commissions Paid - $0.00
Current Streak - 21 weeks
Yearly Dividends Added - $11.29
Yield- 3.40%

I also sold out of my small STAG position.  I know that was very soon, but I found SDIV to cover may REITS and I would rather invest my money in that ETF.


Have you closed a position shortly after starting one with no changes in the market or underlying company?

  1. Good buys,even i made a purchase in SBUX on the last day of the month.
    Good luck with June.

    1. Desidividend,

      Thank you - I will continue to add to this position =)

  2. I'm still loving that SDIV, it would be my first mutual type fund though. Still thinking about it. I usually have to mill things over for a few weeks.

    Good buys

    1. Don't blame you. I wish I took some more time to think sometimes I end up just jumping in. Great that you have the control. Hope you are well!

  3. 21 weeks without commissions is awesome. I need to revisit using Robinhood and Loyal3. My trading fees have added up this year.

    1. Absolutely- I would not be able to make these small weekly contributions if it wasn't for brokers such as Robinhood and Loyal 3! Let me know what you decide or have any questions about them!
