It’s been almost 3 more months since I’ve written a post. That’s just crazy! Things are finally normalizing where I’m not working every day at the restaurant. I’m starting to come up with a more consistent investing plan over the next 6 years. Stay tuned!

Lots of shares in my sharebuilder and E*Trade account were sold, approximately $37,500 net. This was for two main reasons. First, I owed more on my extended 2015 tax return than I thought. This is now taken care of. Second, I’m in the process of buying a second rental property and needed the extra cash in my account for that purchase. I sold shares in companies that had run up significantly from my purchases price. I was also anticipating a weaker market going forward with election season and the ability to hopefully purchase back shares at a better discount. I don’t plan on having to sell off shares like this again.
SBUX is a new position for me. It’s a great company selling an addicting product. What’s not to like?
I’m been building up a position in CAH. I think the generics selloff has created some buying opportunity, namely in CAH and TEVA. I’ll continue to nibble away while shares of depressed.
DIS is still a small position and I’ll slowly averaging down from my original purchases.
TIF is a fairly new position, the price popped from my initial purchases but I’m still dollor-cost-averaging when I can.
I’m looking at buying some CVS at these prices. What are you buying?
In Recent News:
I mentioned I’m in the process of purchasing another rental property. This will be rental property number 2. It’s in a small town and taking a while to get an appraisal done on it. I’ll post details on the transaction once it’s completed, hopefully by mid December.
I’ve hired full time waitstaff and don’t have to bartend much any more. I’m mainly overseeing and managing the business.
My one rental that was re-leased for a $100 increase had their lease extended until 04/30/17. It was originally going to be up in October. I’ve had the same tenants for a while.
My last business has been exited and I’m receiving proceeds over the next 6 years that I will need to invest and grow my income with.
It’s about time I invested some of this money. It’s just been sat there for longer than it should, all while it could’ve been invested into something worthwhile that would’ve helped to grow my income.
The beauty of investments though is that there are so many things that you can invest your money into that you can be spoilt for choice.
Do you want to invest in a z15 antminer that will enable you to mine and trade cryptocurrency? Do you want to invest in real estate or the stock market? The options are limitless – so I best hurry up and decide where I want this money to go and fast.
The picture is from a recent trip to Mexico City at the Teotihuacan ruins. I’m standing in front of the pyramid of the sun. What an amazing place!
