Recently i added the following stocks in my robinhood account.
I added 10 shares of CSCO after more than 3 years at an average price of $45.24. This will add another $14 to my account.
Another company i added recently is WRK. This is a new position for me ,added 11 shares at $39.38 and will add another $20.46 to the FI fund.
Last company i added is AMRN ,this is small speculative position . Added 10 shares .
New Dividend Payer:
BTG announced their first dividend payment of 0.01/Share. I have around 175 shares in this company,so its nice to get the dividend.
As mentioned before my company was bought by Another company,that had better 401k Plan.It was almost 3 months they since they stopped deduction due to merger and integration . Finally it was ready for us to contribute ,one benefit is 3% Match which i didn’t have in my previous company.
So i wanted to my max out my 401k contribution for 2019 and decided to aggressively contribute to the new plan and try to catch up the lost 3 months. With that in my mind and contribution made to old plan i will max out if i plan correctly.
For the first i own shares in the company that is going to manage my 401k plan.
so here are my new purchases i made in the new plan,some of the existing names i have in my account.
So i added 11 shares of VIMAX a 5 star rated on Morningstar which adds another $32 In dividends to the Fund.
Another addition is 37 shares of VTMGX and this add another $12 dividends to my Fund.
Now i have to rollover my old 401k ,i am thinking of either moving it into Vanguard directly or Merrill Edge they have nice promotions if you rollover 401k.
Anyone had experiences with either of them please share in comments.
As you see this is not a regular buy of stock or ETF. It a limited edition silver coin that was offered on 11/14 at 11 am CST by the US Mint and it was sold out in less than 20 minutes. It was lucky for me to get one of the 30000 coins.
This was my first ever coin purchase from mint on the release date.Previously i bought coins from Ebay APMEX store. The reason i got was out of curiosity and see if i could get one with such huge rush . After some troubles with getting the order and website crashing and refreshes i was able to order 1 and it was confirmed . Eagerly waiting for the coin to see if it worth the hype. Mean while the coin prices are going crazy on ebay like this or this one ,prices are fluctuating between 400 to all the way 2000.
Will decide once i get the coin to either keep it or sell it.Does any of the DGI members collect coins ?.
