I’m reporting my automatic purchases for (the last two) weeks:
$200 of MDT (Medtronic)
$200 of TGT (Target)
$600 of UL (Unilever)
$200 of Cop (Conoco Phillips)
I used $1200 in new capital and added $37.35/year to my dividend income. This is an average yield of 3.1%.
UL is still a new addition to my portfolio and I plan to keep dollar-cost-averaging until it’s a full position. I mentioned more reasons two weeks ago for the purchase.
MDT is below weight and even though they have had a nice run, my average cost basis is still much lower. I don’t mind adding a little here to bring up to a full weight.
I’ve mentioned why I like TGT several times and as long as I can keep averaging down , I will keep buying more.
I haven’t bought COP for a while and I’d like to bring my position more in line with my other energy positions. They still have a decent yield and growth.
Just for some fun and to add some color I will be posting pictures of places I’ve been to. It’s also motivation to reach FI so I can travel and do what I want to when I want to.
