Recent buy: BUD, NSRGY, and others

I picked up two international companies that yield over 3% annually. They are the beer giant BUD and the consumer staples giant NSRGY. Anheuser Busch InBev is based in Belgium and Nestle is based in Switzerland. They are both stable consistent cash flow businesses that have great financial strength. The downside is that they are foreign so I will initially get taxed on the dividend. The dividend gets paid once per year as well, so it's not every quarter. I can claim credit on my tax return so the net tax withheld is similar to regular US companies.

I also added small amounts to other companies. In total it's around $1600 USD this week.

BUD: $600
NSRGY: $600
PEP: $100
VZ: $100
MMM: $100
ABT: $100

Recent buy: VZ & GIS

Added the following two on Tuesday this week.

VZ: $100
GIS: $100

I pay $1 per trade with my weekly investments with my broker so I'm not burdened with commission. I expect larger trades late this month to early next month.

It seems I'm a bit behind my original plan but I will wait out later this year to see if I need to revise any goals.
