Finally! I own Ford :-)

Well I managed to do today what I have not been able to do for some time - I bought 150 shares of Ford (F).  Feels good but...

Gulp!  Spent a lot too but nowhere near the price of a car (or truck!) ;-)

Plan is for me to keep 100 shares on a very long-term basis and to sell the other 50 shares (when the price is right but way in the future) for a nice profit and a bit of a splurge.  

Current price is about $12 but I do expect this to increase in the years to come. 

I will update the blog with this purchase, September's dividends and current portfolio this weekend.

A middle of the week read

I read this yesterday and it hit home.  Hope you enjoy it.

A happy, successful, financial life


A bit of this and a bit of that

Oh man things are not well in my world at the moment.  Situation with my flatmate is not good and now I have a ton of stress at home - something I try really hard to avoid since there is so much stress elsewhere.  And then there is this thing called the election - I'm so stressed about that.  Finally, there is a little something called work.  I'd like to completely forget about that last topic but at least for the next 10 years I gotta work!

Moving on to more important things - little tiny things that will help me rewire in 10...or almost 9... :-)

My transfers for the month have been set up (late but still gonna happen in September!).  And I held off on buying the Ford (F) stock because I wasn't sure but I've read up on it and I want it.  Again I am planning to hold my stock for the long term so I'm comfortable with it.  Now to get organized and pull the trigger before month end!

Hope everyone is doing well.  Need to catch up on a few comments (thanks for commenting!).  

I'll will be back on track soon enough.

I'm still here!

Sorry for the ridiculous gap in writing.  I'm here but now have a new roommate and I'm dealing with that.  

I will update my blog pages this weekend.  (Promise!)

And my next purchase is going to be Ford stock.  Probably 100 or 150 shares.  I have already transferred money into my brokerage account for this month.  Am going to try and purchase this stock this week.

Hope everyone is doing well!
