New Weeks Hot action DCA on yet another week

Well hello I spend the better part of the week hunting looking and examining my current holdings to determine what is to be done this week for my sharebuilder tuesday investing day. I am still using the $12.00 per month 12 trade plan so my trading fees run approx. $144.00 a year, which includes 144 buy chances at $1.00 per trade try to beat that with a stick.

So first I am taking a initial plunge into TPZ Tortoise Power n Energy Infrastructure. Currently has approx 7 million shares outstanding. Was created on 07/29/2009, with average daily volume of 1.25 million a day. Inception price was $20.00 per share with a NAV of $19.50 per share, today the price is $23.62 witha  nav of $24.97. The thing the really knocked my socks off not the monthly dividend of 6.35% or 12.5 cents per month per share of stock owned, no not any of that it was the amazing fee of a mere .60 basis points oh my that is sweet. Go try and get a MLP (master limited partnership) for anywhere near that cost.
