JANUARY 2019 BUYS


As the stock market roared to new record highs this January, it became progressively harder to find companies that offered a great value.  Because of that, I focused on making purchases in the companies I spent money at.  That's part of my goal I posted about earlier back in August.

Then the Coronavirus hit, and the stock market hit a rough patch, which actually creates bargains for some solid companies.   By that time, I had already spent most of my earnings and have decided to sit on it for a bit in order to see how the market shakes out and well as earning more so I can make a purchase of impact. 

I used to wait until I had $1500 to make a single purchase.  Now that fees no longer exist, I started making many smaller purchases.  I think there is an emotional lift when buying many shares over a bunch of small purchases.  I crave that dopamine rush...

As you can see below, I have not purchases any shares since January 16th.  And I focuses on meeting my goals of buying shares at companies I spend $ at. 
I bought what is equivalent for 98% of what I spent at Bed Bath and Beyond  (BBBY) in 2019.  I am at 28% of what I spent on my AT&T bill.
