Sharebuilder DRIP Purchases- AFL, KMR, GE

Reporting my weekly buys that went through today.  Market basically gained back all the ground it lost in the previous week and closed today at 16,676.

This weeks purchases:
  • $150 of AFL at $61.62. Yield 2.40%
  • $150 of KMR at $72.47. Yield 7.62%.
  • $100 of GE at $26.59. Yield 3.31%
$450 of new capital invested adding $18.34 to my annual dividend income.

Note: Continue to like AFL and Kinder at these levels even though both are trading quite higher then my cost basis. First purchase of GE in a while.  I think that it offers decent value here but would prefer a 3.5% initial yield.


  1. We just purchased shares of AFL...I think it offers a nice entry point. With its solid history of dividend increases and low payout ratio, I think Aflac Inc. will do well for you for years to come. Cheers!

  2. I like all 3 of these and already have GE. I might be adding some AFL but was waiting for price to come down to $60 Any thoughts? Thanks for sharing.

  3. Frugal Family, thanks for the comment. I agree AFL is good value here and one name that I follow that is not what I perceive to be over valued.

    BTW, good writeup on the company on your blog.


  4. Dividend Mongrel,

    I think AFL is decently priced here. One thing I have learned over the years is that it is imppossible to forecast the market so the price may come down to $60..and it may not.

    With that said, nothing wrong with waiting for a better price point and I usually let yield dictate that for larger purchases.

    Thanks for stopping by,
