Recent Buy - General Mills, Inc. (GIS)

On Tuesday March 21, I bought 20 shares of General Mills, Inc. at $ 58.46 per share plus commission.



Tuesday morning, General Mills reported fiscal 2017 third-quarter results, which was a small disappointment in the market, and I decided to put in the bid. My offer already went through on Pre-Market and, therefore, I grabbed a few more shares of GIS. 

My overall cost basis of this position decreases from $ 59.70 to $ 59.21 per share. I totally hold now 40 shares of GIS and my yield on cost is 3.24%. You can look at my first purchase of GIS here.
