Here’s a quick update on some transactions from late last week.
On 2/8/2018 I received $49.20 in dividends from LOW, paid in cash to my E*Trade Brokerage.
On 2/9/2018 I made the following contributions:
$105 to my IRA
$50 to my E*Trade Brokerage
Thoughts about last week:
By the end of the week, I had lost a little more than $2,000 in value, about 5% of my portfolio. This was a rough week in the market, although this “correction” has been expected for a long time now. My strategy at this time is to stay the course and ride the roller coaster. I expect, along with most of the wall street analysis, that this is temporary and we should see all the recent losses erased within a few months. For now, I will be hunting for bargains, I’ll let you know when I find the next one.
