Latest stock purchases — AT&T and Kroger

My latest two purchases are additional shares of two companies that I already own. On 5/30/2017, I purchased 200 shares of AT&T. While this slightly increases my cost basis, I feel that this is still a great entry point. AT&T is transitioning from being a slow growth telecom company functioning...
