Trade order adjustment – SPDR EURO STOXX 50 (FEZ) in ROTH IRA

Today’s mixed trading session ended SPDR EURO STOXX 50 (FEZ) price movement within my expectations. As I wrote in my previous post “How to invest with small money” I would invest in this ETF to take advantage of investing small money into a commission free ETF. Investing into FEZ is basically an experiment to me. Continue reading →

Trade adjustment – Pitney Bowes Inc. (PBI) put rollover

Trade adjustment - Pitney Bowes Inc. (PBI) put rollover

Today Pitney Bowes cut their dividend by 50%. That makes this stock no longer attractive for my dividend growth strategy and I am no longer interested in this stock. Originally I sold a put contract to get assigned to the stock. I no longer wish to be assigned and since I do not know how Continue reading →

Is AT&T a buy now?

Today AT&T dropped some 5% after trading down for almost 6% during the trading session. It then recovered slightly. My position and thinking about this stock is quite mixed.

Stocks which sparked my attention for addition today

I typically add new stocks into my portfolio, when the overall portfolio value reaches a certain threshold (see here). Before that happens I accumulate the holdings I now hold based on their price action. At today’s high levels I am mostly waiting gor prices to drop.

Trade adjustment - Lorillard, Inc.  (LO) addition

Today I added 25 shares of Lorillard to my portfolio. The trade trigger was triggered and the order was executed.

Is Lorillard offerring another buy opportunity?

Is Lorillard offerring another buy opportunity?

I think Lorillard is offering another buy opportunity. On Friday session the stock dropped by 4% and hit 200 day MA. That is the kind of a retreat I usually look in stocks of my interest to add more shares. I am not buying yet, since the stock may continue sliding down, but I entered Continue reading →
