I sold my 1 share of General Electric and my 1 share of Unilever.
|Company||Ticker||Buy Price||Sell Price||Difference||Dividend||Fee||% Gain|
To determine the % Gain, I used the following equation.
=(Difference + Dividend + Fee)/Buy Price.
I sold the share of GE because I had a high unrealized gain on it, and wanted to capture these gains before the stock went down in price. Also, the ex-dividend date for GE isn't until December, so I can buy it again when the time gets closer. I sold Unilever because I had a great gain on it, and I owned the stock before the 10/28 ex-dividend date, so I will be getting a dividend from Unilever in December.
Below is a chart of what I bought this week.
|Omega Healthcare Investors||OHI||$34.05|
I may be getting into some bad habits by trying to average down on stocks. I don't think I should buy any more of these stocks unless there is a noticeable decrease in the stock price.
Next week's plans will be to try and sell F and OHI again. I will also try to sell Apple and Intel. I could have sold both this week, but I was hesitant. I am going to hold on to Microsoft since the ex-dividend date is November 17th. If I am able to sell F, OHI, APPL, and INTC, I will use those dollars to buy different stocks that have ex-dividend dates in November.
