This Week's Stock Purchasesd

I bought two stocks this week - Another share of both Verizon and Target. Both stocks were going down in value, so I used it as an opportunity to cost-average down. Every time I go to Target, it's super busy, and with personally shopping there, I bought another share.

The same line of thought for Verizon - I use Verizon and don't see it going away any time soon.

I am able to buy so many different stocks due to not paying commission fees, thanks to the trading app called Robinhood. If you want to learn more about Robinhood, click here
