Quack! Quack! AFL!

Happy Monday everyone. Hope you all had a great Easter weekend. I picked up a duck that will hopefully lay some golden eggs for me in the future.

Today I picked up 16 shares of Aflac (AFL) at $64.90/share including commission. My yield on cost (YOC) is at 2.4% and adds $24.96 to my yearly dividend income.

im excited to keep adding to my portfolio and slowly build up the dividend!


let me know what you think of AFL! Thanks for running with me!

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! Just like in running, small steps lead to big gains.

      I’m trying to figure out why I can’t turn on my comments on my pages. It’s set to allow, but I don’t know what’s wrong. Thanks for the heads up!

      *Update* Comments are up on my Portfolio Page. I finally found the box I needed to check!

    I really like AFL and have held that in my portfolio for many years. In fact it’s my largest single stock holding as I have been adding to it a while back when valuations became too tempting to pass up. Thanks for sharing.

      Yeah, AFL is a really solid company, especially with the low payout ratio. Gives them a lot of wiggle room to reinvest or pay shareholders a growing dividend!
