Investing Update 11/27/15

This was a shorter week for trading due to Thanksgiving and the shorter hours today. I sold a lot of stocks last week, and I didn't rush into buying stocks this week, although I did buy a few different stocks this week.

This past trading week I sold my share of AT&T stock.

CompanyTickerBuy Price Sell PriceDifferenceDividendFee% Gain

To determine the % Gain, I used the following equation.

=(Difference + Dividend + Fee)/Buy Price. 

I mentioned last week that I would maybe buy stocks that weren't paying dividends. I didn't hold this AT&T stock for very long, and I had a 1.35% return on it. It isn't reasonable to expect 5%+ gains on all of trades, and I am happy with any sort of gain. I am probably being bull-headed by holding on to my OHI stock, and I will incur "opportunity costs" by this bull-headedness. This "opportunity cost" means I could be using that money to buy other stocks and get positive gains from that. I've held OHI for this long though, that I feel like I can wait a little bit longer to break even on it.

Below is a chart of what I bought this week.

I bought KO, DIS, and WM for the upcoming dividends. I bought Twitter because I like it as a social media platform and I like the CEO, Jack Dorsey.
