Recent buy: PM, KMB, GIS, PG, CLX, etc

I added quite a bit of stock today. Here are the purchases:

Honeywell and Microsoft are new positions. They will be increased over time as I like their businesses and I want more companies in industrials and technology sectors. They do yield lower so I wanted to focus on higher yielding purchases now as a lot of consumer staples are very cheap and yield over 3%.

Right now my cash position sits at around $16,000.

Total commissions paid below is 0 (note I get 100 free trades a month due to my account balance).

  1. What broker are you using that allows you 100 free trades a month?

  2. Good question by DB. I have a sizable balance with my broker and get only about 50 free trades per year. Tom

    1. I must be doing something wrong, my brokerage account is around $2.5M and don't get any free trades. I need to research this. Do you have to use the 100 trades up quickly? Just asking because of the low amounts. Thank you Young Dividend for giving me an idea to explore.

    2. No, the 100 just gets renewed every month if uou are a platinum honors customer. I dont know when they will cancel that feature but its been around for a long time now

  3. nice to see you opening up some new positions. In recent days/weeks, I've made small buys of UL, D, JNJ, and ITW.

    defense stocks are also starting to pique my interest; I'd like LMT to get to under $300 to add to my position.

  4. Wow that's quite a few buys here! Congrats. I also did trigger a few transactions in the last week in some similar stocks (PG, MMM, KMB, GIS, JNJ) and others (BEP, BIP). It's nice to see better opportunities overall.
