Feeling Flush: A new addition to our portfolio
January 16, 2015
Thanks to the Cuba announcement causing the market to dip, I had just enough cash set aside to buy *nearly* 100 shares of something before the end of 2014.
That was a bit of a milestone since my very humble 10 share purchase beginnings. I could have transferred more money in to make it an even 100 shares but we had agreed on a certain amount for purchasing 2014 stock and I didn’t want to go back on that or take the few days to wait for a transfer and have the prices go right back up. I only keep cash sitting idle in the account when I’m waiting to make a purchase.
Note: I’m not into timing the market, it’s just that I didn’t have a timeline on buying, this stock dropped below my optimal buy price, so I went with it.
I picked our buy last year, so in the name of fairness I went with PiC’s preference. My turn this year! And I won’t necessarily wait for Christmas proper. Christmas can come early, after all! 🙂
