My summary of buys around the blogging community for the week of August 2, 2015.
This week there was a total of 33 buys of 25 different stocks from 14 different bloggers.
EMR was the hot stock this week with 4 bloggers posting buys. This was a close second in buys for last week and A Frugal Family's Journey posted a monthly summary for July and EMR was on the top of that list. The stock price has been on a steady decline since June and that dividend yield continues to increase, drawing in more investors.
Other familiar names in the dividend investing community came in tied for second with a couple buys each.
Here is the summary of stocks and how many buys this week:
For the Sector information, I use FinViz.com when possible as it is easy to find a consistent sector list. Here are the Sector codes I use in the chart (# is the number of each stock purchased in that sector):
The hot sectors this week were Industrial Goods and Financials. Basic Materials had been the leader recently but slowed this week. Overall though it was a nice spread throughout the sectors.

Which of these stocks are you looking to buy next week? Any surprises in this list?
I cross referenced my data with A Frugal Family's Journey's page about Collection of Recent Buys. They provide a link to the individual posts as well as the amount invested. I stuck with shares purchased this week but I may start to include the amount invested in future posts.
