July Updates

August 7th, 2014 at 01:38 am

I finally got around to updating My Pages.

In the Investment Plan Page my Cash stakes increased slightly for 2 reasons. First almost all of the equity positions dropped along with Mr. Market causing cash to increase a little. I also sold my POT in July. No, not that pot, but Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan. It was a nice little 17% gain in nine months time. The proceeds will be soon used in a future purchase, probably another metals/miners or energy play.

My Weight Loss program got severely side tracked last month with a bad bout of Sciatica. The pain in my back and leg prevented any exercise at all. I'm surprised I only put back on about 2 or 3 lbs last month. Just this week I am able to resume walking and my physical therapy sessions will be done probably next week. Hopefully the doctor will let me back on my bike for some light weekend riding.

I did get the $200 bonus from the Chase Freedom card, but I have not decided what to do with it yet.

This month I will be finally paying off my new Central Heating and AC System. I've been paying on it for only 2 years but it seems like forever.

    Have you looked at ETF but I'm sure it's painful and hope you're getting treatment.

    @snafu: Yes, I am currently using some ETFs along with some open end mutual funds and a few individual stocks. Some of the ones I am considering are IBB for some Biotech exposure, XES as another Energy play, SIL for the Silver Miners, and a few others.

    POT was in an IRA, so I did not have to deal with taxes
