Loyal3 Stock Buys of the Week Edition #5

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks in the stock market, but all is well when you avoid all the noise and stick to your original plan. Every week I have been adding my hard earned money into companies I truly believe will do well in the next 30-40 years. I am hoping my consistent investing strategy will allow me to enjoy an early retirement. This week I was able to invest into the following companies:  

Share Price
Div Yield
Average 2.97%







  1. Way to take advantage of KO's recent drop.

    1. I am hoping KO stays at these levels so I can continue to add a full position. I am glad I waited for the 6% price reduction because KO seems expensive most of the time. Since most stocks have recovered from the October lows, its getting harder to find out where to put some capital to work. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Great companies to own. I am looking at UL to add to my position, but no extra cash around.
    KO looks interesting - but still a high PE for my taste. Good idea to start averaging in over the next year or so (which they are calling transitionary)

    Best wishes

    1. I agree that KO is a little expensive at the moment so I am glad I was able to get into the $40-$41 range. I don't think I will add much more here and might focus my attention on other companies like UL and YUM. I am looking forward to holding KO for the long term. I'm with you on trying to find extra cash in order to capitalize on some great buying opportunities. I have avoided digging into my emergency fund which took some discipline when stocks were down a couple of weeks ago.

  3. Yay UL! Keep on picking up good value when it presents itself. Like R2R, KO is a bit too high for my taste, but 10 years from now it will likely have been a great buy, regardless of a $1 here or there.

    1. W2R, I agree with R2R and yourself. I don't mind paying a little more for companies like KO, and DIS because the long term looks bright for these companies. I was glad to have added when the price dipped 6% and was hoping to see KO back into the $37-$39. But like you said the $1 difference wont make a difference after collections a couple of decades of dividends. Thanks for your ongoing support!

  4. DM,

    Awesome consistency. This will pay off for you in the long run. :)

    I'll probably be joining you on UL over the course of the coming weeks. Looks too good to pass up here.

    Keep up the great work!

    Best regards.

    1. Hey Jason,
      I look forward to seeing what your next buy will be and hopefully UL will stay low enough. I like have the weekly consistent stock buys with Loyal3 because I don't have to come up with a ton of money at once. It's great to DCA into companies like UL and KO without worrying about the commission fees. Thanks for your support!

  5. Hopefully you buy more KRFT and SBUX next week. Strong USD is hurting their overseas earnings, even thou in reality they are earning more.

  6. Hey Anonymous,
    I was actually thinking of adding to KRFT with the recent dividend increase. SBUX has the potential for great future growth. I wish I would have added more when the price was at $72/Share a couple of weeks ago. I might sit on the sidelines but KRFT seems fairly valued here.

  7. SBUX just announced a 23% dividend increase. KRFT is a stock that will is eligible to have the dividend reinvest in Loyal 3 if your quarterly dividend is over $10. KRFT with a current RSI under 50 is a great time to pick up some more shares.

  8. That`s a nice raise by SBUX. I might add some more shares in November. If I can get some extra capital this month I would like to get KRFT to a full position. We will see how November plays out. Thanks for the update on the SBUX raise.

  9. Record date should be the first Thursday in November in order to catch the next dividend from SBUX that will pay the last week in November. Good luck!

  10. Thanks for mentioning that. I am tempted to add a few shares to take advantage of the recent dividend raise. Have a great weekend!
