I’m reporting my automatic purchases for this week:
$400 of UL (Unilever) – 3.5% yield
$200 of MCD (McDonald’s) – 3.5% yield
I used $600 in new capital and added $21.00/year to my dividend income. This is an average yield of 3.5%.
Yes, boring I know. I’ve made the same Sharebuilder purchases for three weeks. However, I’m planning on a small but brand new purchase of a stock next week. Stay tuned!
I continue building up a full position in UL. With a giant portfolio of well-known brands and 3.5% yield, what’s not to like!
I am still adding a little more to MCD since it’s below an average weight in my portfolio (2.5%) and has also retreated a little in price. At a 3.5% yield, I’ll keep adding to shares.
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 my recent trip to Hawai’i. It was taken on The Big Island next to our resort. I thought the clouds looked really cool.
