I’m reporting my automatic purchases for this week:
$200 of TGT (Target)
$300 of UL (Unilever)
$200 of COP (Conoco Phillips)
I used $700 in new capital and added $24.16/year to my dividend income. This is an average yield of 3.5%.
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 a few weeks ago for the purchase.
I’ve mentioned why I like TGT several times and as long as I can keep averaging down , I will keep buying a little more. They also have a much nicer yield after the over 20% increase.
I am trying to bring up the weight of COP so that they are more in line with my other energy holdings. I wish I had added more before the recent price increase.
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.
This is a picture from the changing of the guard ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington D.C. a couple of years ago. When I was on an 8th grade field trip to D.C. , I was randomly chosen to get to place the wreath on the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. I thought this was really cool.
