Sharebuilder DRIP Purchases

Weekly buys went through yesterday.  Market closed 14,036.
  • $500 of RDS.A at $66.48. Yield 5.42%. 
  • $500 of AFL at $49.33. Yield 2.84%.  
  • $200 of LMT at $87.76. Yield 5.24%. 

Total purchases of $1200 adding $51.75 to my annual dividend income.


  1. I am a bit confused. Is DRIP a dividend reinvesting program? If so, is your $500 investment into RDS.A a dividend reinvesting or your added contribution?

    In February 12 you invested $250 into the stock and in February 20 you already invested $500, are those dividends?

  2. Hi Martin,

    Good question!

    These purchases are added contributions through a plan with 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.

    I just call it a DRIP :)
