Investment Activity for the week of August 19 2019

This week I finished to invest all available money I had in etrade account and I began to use my promotions for free trades for Fidelity. Since I sold one of my rental properties and I am not sure if I want to buy another one (unless I find some awesome deal I really want to have, which I doubt), I am slowly reinvesting into dividends stocks.

Right now when I am driving, I am listening to the audio book "The Warren Buffet Way: Investment Strategies of the World's Greatest Investor" by Robert Hagstrom and this book is very inspiring. It feel like a confirming message for me that I am on a right path. Even with all market ups and down, I feel really excited being able to add more positions to my portfolio. But next year I am planning to follow Phil Town's strategy on sales, when you buy and eventually sell, when you reach certain profit amount. Although I only want to purchase dividends stocks, so even if my stock is down, I still earn my passive income. I really want to attend Phil Town "Rule#1" seminar in Georgia, but with all logistics (tickets, rental car and hotel), it's just too complicated for now.

This week my son and I both got $50 each into our Discover credit card account. I referred him and he was approved for his first own credit card. Next step is to set up automatic full payment every month from his bank account. I am teaching him that he can use his credit card, but have to pay off every month. Some kids just have no clue about interest. I was talking to a girl, who is a frond desk help at one of my accounting clients and I had to explain to her how much her Luis Vuitton purse actually costs her with all interest she is paying right now. Hopefully I inspired her and she will try to pay off her card as fast as she can. Oh well, if to would be my daughter... We would have a huge drama if she would max out her credit card for Luis Vuitton purse and then I would force her to return it... :) We already had a talk about Luis Vuitton purse before. Although she had cash to buy it. She is mostly very frugal but sometimes peer pressure could be dangerous! I can be a mean mom some days, but it's always for their best interests.

Back to stock market. I actually purchased lots of new positions this week.


19 shares of LYB - new position 
33 shares of OXY - new position
38 shares of IP - new position
38 shares of HP - new position
25 shares of RDS-B - new position
25 shares of WBA - new position
23 shares of HOG - add up to existing
34 shares of M - add up to existing

It will add $478 to my yearly dividend income.

I did not sell anything this week.

How was your week?

Thanks for reading!

    WOW... that's some serious investment activity. Want to include how much dividend income you added going forward from this activity? I know as a reader, that would be "fun" to see!
