Towards the end of last month I added to my position in the Consumer Cyclical sector. This sector is underweight by dividend income in my portfolio and I decided to buy into a new company to round the sector out.
I’ll be making more stock purchases this month as I have more monthly cash available after my house sale. I’m still using Sharebuilder for my purchases at the moment and I’m on their automatic plan which charges $12 for 12 stock purchases in a month. The $12 is paid via credit card out of my monthly living budget so I don’t really think of it as a commission fee even though it is.
