I'm using Loyal3 to initiate positions in companies that I want to make speculative plays in and to dollar cost average in companies that I'm definitely interested in.  I've been wanting to purchase Pepsico, Inc. for a while, but have always thought the stock to be overpriced.  I may still have overpaid for Pepsico, Inc., but at least now I have a small position and it did not cost me much at all.


  1. Thanks for sharing your recent buys with us. I like Loyal3 a lot even though I don't use them I like the concept and always say that if I was starting today they'd be my first choice. I own a few of the names you mention in my portfolio. No doubt all solid dividend payers. The toy companies have been getting some attention recently especially MAT since it dropped so much and is offering a juicy yield. Look forward to your next update.

    1. Hi DivHut,

      Even though I don't get the best purchase price with Loyal3, I love the fact that you can purchase a position in a company with as little as $10. Plus, they don't charge any fees so I pretty much just use it to dollar cost average and test out the waters for companies I might be interested in.

  2. Some great companies in that list. Big fan of Loyal3 myself. Look forward to following your journey.

    1. Hi Gareth,

      I'm pretty new to Loyal3 myself, but love the fact that you can dollar cost average, invest with small amounts, and no fees. Thanks for reading.
