In my ShareBuilder (Now Capital One Investing Account), my monthly purchases kicked in and bought the following:
- 3.8308 shares of OHI
- 1.6246 shares of TGT
- 1.3956 shares of UNP
- 2.0658 shares of DLR
- 1.5229 shares of HSY
- 3.0513 shares of O
- 1.4645 shares of DE
I still like every one of these names here and they are still only around 3% of my total portfolio. I will look next month at other names as well as these.
Even though my fees are only $3.95 per Tx, I feel like I might be better off buying in bigger chunks. This purchase was roughly $28 in fees, it was still 2.8% of the transaction cost. That to me is too high. I might switch to buying one of these stocks each month over the next 7 months, paying a total of $28 in fees on a cost basis of $7000, lowering my cost to 0.4%. Sounds like a plan to me!
