If you don’t already know, this is my personal finance and investing blog! I periodically post my thoughts about finance and investing to try and help you out to create a better future for yourself. I also post some suggested stock picks every once in a while. Some people have actually asked me if I invested in the stocks I suggest. To which I say “Of course!” (when I have the money to do so). So that inspired me. Today, I have decided to post my portfolio for you to see. I believe that it is important to be as transparent as possible and I know this is a great way for all of you to see what I love to do.
Before I post my stock positions, I just want to give you some background information. I just recently started investing (real money) at the very beginning of August. During the months of August and part of September I tried my hand at buying and selling on a short time horizon. This didn’t work out quite as well as I hoped and I ended up breaking even. Since about mid September I have been investing and going long on many of my positions. For someone like me, this is the best thing that I can do given that I don’t have unlimited time and resources.
Also keep in mind that I started out with about $5,000 and have added a little bit every month. I currently have about $11,500 in principal invested which has a current fair market value of $12,000. Without further ado, here is my portfolio:
Hope you enjoy and Happy Investing!!
