STASH Portfolio Update for week 2-25 thru 3-1-2019


Good Sunday morning STASHERS! Thanks for checking in, and a great big WELCOME to everyone who has joined STASH through my referral link. So glad you are all here. It thrills me to know that through these articles and updates I am able to maybe reshape your thinking about investing for your future. You are learning that it doesn’t have to be difficult, nor intimidating. So again, welcome aboard! Let’s get started.

On Monday with me regular weekly deposit I only divide that money between stocks I already own starting with those in my portfolio that are my current lowest gainers that have not been brought up to the $10 investment level. Remember, at this point I am only investing in $5 increments. So here is the list of the 8 stocks that I added $5 to on Monday:

  1. Domino’s
  2. Electronic Arts
  3. CVS
  4. The J.M. Smucker Company
  5. Tyson Foods
  6. Booking Holdings
  7. BP (For some reason I have $15 in BP now due to an oversight on my part)
  8. Union Pacific

This week I received dividends from the following companies. Dividends are a predetermined amount of money companies share with you simply for owning their stock. Its like little bribes to get you to invest. They are fun to receive and are helpful in building up your portfolio. Here is that list:

  1. Constellation Brands
  2. Wynn Resorts
  3. Slow & Steady (ETF)
  4. Simon Property Group
  5. Wells Fargo
  6. The J.M. Smucker Company
  7. Boeing
  8. ConAgra
  9. ConocoPhillips
  10. Ford
  11. Phillips 66
  12. Intel
  13. Kroger
  14. Pfizer

Then on Tuesday I rebought the stocks that I had sold on the prior Friday as the funds had been made available. Keep in mind that I only sell them for a minimum of a 10% gain, but if I remember right one of them had an increase of over 20% by the time it sold. Here is that list:

  1. Robots Rising (ETF) $10
  2. NVIDIA $10
  3. $10
  4. Honeywell $5
  5. Paypal $5
  6. Young Money (ETF) $5
  7. Water the World (ETF) $5
  8. Dine Brands Global $5
  9. Marriott $5
  10. Oracle $5
  11. Las Vegas Sands $5
  12. Intel $5
  13. Wendy’s $5
  14. Home Depot $5

Then on Friday March 1st at 2:20ish I put in my order to sell my stocks that were showing at least a 10% profit. Here is that list:

  1. The Gap
  2. Cisco
  4. Apple
  5. Monster
  6. Anheuser-Busch InBev
  7. Nike
  8. Boeing
  9. BLOK (ETF)
  10. Abbott Laboratories
  11. Small but Mighty

Following are the screenshots of each end-of-day results for the week. It was a very slow market week, as was the week before, but still was able to take some profits and reinvest them in some companies who are at some low levels right now. Remember, this is exactly how you are to invest. You must buy stocks that are low and sell them when they are high.

Warren Buffett even advises you to “never lose money.” In other words, do not sell a stock unless you have made a profit. This assumes that you are an investor and not a speculator, meaning you are buying for the long-term. Far too many investors never really gain this kind of understanding about investing. If you look online in the stockmarket chat rooms you will find that there are more people out there gambling (speculating) on stocks than are actually investing.

I am trying to teach you the “buy-and-hold” technique that Warren Buffett recommends, but with an added twist of occasionally selling so that you can take profits and reinvest them creating a compounding effect which in-turn will really cause explosive growth in your portfolio. It just takes time to make that happen, and you must be patient. Your patience will be greatly rewarded!

Y’all have a great week! I love you and God loves you!! Bye-bye
