Loyal3 and Robinhood - Week 28: Recent Buys

July 11 - July 17

My investments for week 28 included PEP, SBUX, UL, WMT, WFC, and AMZN.  Each of these pay a dividend except for Amazon.  The yield this week was 2.58% compared to 1.86% the week prior.  The yield is higher this week as most of my investments went into dividend paying companies yielding more than the S&P.  The amount of yearly dividends added ($14.39) was higher than last week ($2.54) due to the yield and more money being invested this week.  This also marks 28 consecutive weeks without paying commissions! 

Total Invested - $557.28
Commissions Paid - $0.00
Current Streak - 28 weeks
Yearly Dividends Added - $14.39
Yield- 2.58%


Are you invested in any mutual funds?  Why or why not?

  1. Always happy to read about new buys even as the market is at all time highs. Many of those names are in my portfolio. Looking for growth with AMZN I see. I still do not own any non-dividend paying companies in my portfolio. Thanks for sharing.

    1. DivHut,

      Thanks for coming by again ! =D I understand market is at all time high which makes me a little hesitant; however, I do not want to stop my automatic $50 a month into loyal3 as I believe I would do worse if I was to try to time it myself (proven by my previous trades). Also since I am investing small amounts I feel good about it in the long run. The WFC buy was larger than the others as I wasn't going over my cost basis.

      BUT YES! Amazon is a company I buy from almost every week and see it continuing to grow. I believe in investing in companies that are part of our daily lives. Although, I am moving towards a dividend portfolio at my age I think I need some growth as well (probably mentioned this many times before). How much I should invest in growth I have not determined but I am extremely grateful to be moving in the right direction.
