    How are you purchasing these? Is it automatic through Sharebuilder - or are these your dividends for each of the companies listed?

  2. Hi Taylor,

    Thanks for stopping by.

    These are new purchases. I am enrolled with Sharebuilder where I get 12 orders each month for $12. Each additional purchase is $1.

    The cavaet is that the purchases go through on Tuesdays of every month. Before each Tuesday, I decide how much I will invest and in which companies.

    While I do not get the best price by setting limit orders, I find it a great for building a portfolio.
