Contributions & Dividends

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.

Happy trading!
