Wow… October is almost coming to a close and I have been busy. I meant to have this out a few days ago, but my parents surprised me by coming out to visit! So my weekend plans changed on a dime. I had a great time and it was worth deviating from my usual routine. Work has been nuts.
I haven’t been able to comment as much as I would like, but I thank you all for stopping by! I’m still lurking.
Goal almost made!
I had been training for a half marathon and it took place last weekend as well. I ran a very good race and ended up a few seconds short of my goal of under 1:30:00 ( I ran 1:30:01!) How about that. I don’t feel bad about it at all. I beat my previous Personal Record (PR) by 4:39, which is crazy and I averaged under 7 minute miles for the entire race. Both are pretty fantastic accomplishments.
Mr. Market has been kind during October, I was very active at the beginning of the month. After a few weeks, I
found chose a few other positions to add and initiate. Here’s how the last few weeks went for me.
For a total of $101.54 to my yearly income. I have had a great month. I am glad that I had some time to do a little research to determine that BP would fit into my portfolio nicely and that I got to add to my AFL stake.
I have continued to add to my Loyal3 account with weekly purchases and I do not expect that to stop this week. I will make another purchase in a few days. A few potential opportunities have opened up in both KO and MCD, but others still exist with UL and MAT. I will see what I feel like, maybe even buy a little more than usual. (Loyal3 purchases come out of my budget).
I should have enough funds by the end of the week/early next week for another purchase through both dividends and capital infusions. I have my eyes on a few companies to add to my portfolio. Foremost on my mind is IBM and WTR. I have adopted the DGI strategy, but consider myself a seeker of value. IBM seems to be presenting me an opportunity for with both respects (BP does as well). Enough for tonight!
Did you find an opportunity in the market over the last few weeks?
