Archive for June, 2017
I can’t believe it has been so long since I made a purchase. My last stock purchase was back in early May. Had a few big expenses hindering my purchases since then, but it is nice to be back on track and making some moves in my portfolio. Last week I hinted at making a new purchase in my June 2017 Stock Poll Results. I selected one of those 8 stocks from the poll that I thought had great value at these prices and picked up a few shares. If you haven’t already figured it out, I purchased 9 shares of General Mills (GIS) at $56.59. You can find more info on GIS below.
Last Friday, we ran a little experiment and I let you vote on a few dividend stocks. You can find the June 2017 Stock Poll here. I was hoping for a little larger turnout that participated but I am still happy to get some good data and view points. As of today, I closed the polls and am ready to announce the results!
The following is a guest blog post by Stacy B Miller:
Seldom do we realize that our past money memories cast a long-term impact on our financial behavior. Those childhood memories shape our beliefs, thoughts, feelings, and attitude about money.
Don’t agree with me? Okay. Let me share my story with you. Hopefully, after you finish reading my story, you’ll understand what I’m trying to convey.
Lets try a little experiment here. I have select a few stocks that I believe provide some value at current prices. I either own these currently and wish to expand my position or am looking to open a new position with that company. Let’s get your opinions on what is on your watch list and what you think has great value currently. If your choices aren’t on the poll, feel free to comment or email me and I will try to add them. For now, let’s keep the poll open for a week before I publish the results. Let me know what you think. Have fun!
We hear sayings all the time. For instance, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Which implies if you eat healthy, you will keep yourself and body healthy. That is solid childhood advice. However, we can use that same lesson in our finances. So I propose a new saying, “A dollar a day helps our investments pay.” Let me explain.
Wow, I can’t believe May is already over. That went so fast. Finally the weather is starting to turn and get warmer. I get to spend a lot more time outside playing sports and just enjoy the summer time. The best thing to remember though is, while you are out having fun, your invested money is still working for you! Let’s take a look at how my portfolio performed in May. See more details from May below:
