Bought On Loyal3: DNKN, YUM

I purchased the following stocks in my Loyal3 account on 1/11/2016:

  • 0.2606 shares of Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc. (DNKN) at $38.37 per share.  Dividend yield is 2.76%.
  • 0.1466 shares of Yum! Brands, Inc. (YUM) at $68.19 per share.  Dividend yield is 2.70%.
This purchase adds $0.55 to my taxable dividend income.


  1. Interesting buys at this point in time. I believe these are the only buys I have read about in DNKN and YUM among our DGI bloggers. I own YUM for many years. I believe they will spin off their China unit into a separate company one day. Love seeing these small buys. Over time it will definitely accumulate. I think you know that and can appreciate the effect of time on an investment, even a small one. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi DivHut,

      Right now I'm just accumulating little by little in stocks I own on Loyal3. I haven't had much available capital to deploy since I'm also aggressively trying to pay down my mortgage. Once that's paid off, I can begin aggressively picking up more dividend growth stocks.

      As always, thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  2. That is so cool! I just looked up Loyal3 after looking into some of your post. I didn't know it could buy partial stocks. I currently use Robinhood for their trade-free features and love it. How do you like Loyal3? What made you choose them over Robinhood?

    1. Hi Wallet Squirrel,

      I opened an account with Loyal3 beginning of 2015 and have enjoyed it very much so far. I have heard of Robinhood, but I wasn't too crazy about the fact that trades could only be done on the phone and not on a computer. I chose Loyal3 over Robinhood because of the fact that I could invest in partial shares of stock for as little as $10. The only two downsides are that you cannot control how much you buy and sell the stocks for, and there is a limited selection of stocks. But I love the fact that you can invest with as little as $10 with no fees.
