Today was a buying spur for me. Initially I was planning to just buy AMZN, as they announced earnings today, plunging the stock down -4% as it did not me analyst expectations. AMZN was one of the stock I always want to add to my portfolio but unfortunately it’s not a dividend paying stock. It is considered a growth stock, and free cash flow tend to be reinvested into the company.

What to do when a growth company provide dividends? Go the ETF route.

Using the tools from www.etfdb.com, I was able to quickly find ETF’s with exposure to AMZN.

XLY was the preferred ETF as it has 2nd highest weighting along with lower expense ratio, with an over 2.33% dividend yield, compared to RTH, which has a higher weighting, but highest expense ratio and lower dividend yield at 1.83%.

Added more shares of SBUX, and XOM. Both had a div date next week, and I wanted to be listed on their book to receive 1st Quarter of the year.
