February 2015 Dividends

I am still kind of new on the dividend investment thing so I am sure many people reading this post are going to laugh, but you gotta start somewhere right?!

Starting with the new year I started tracking my dividends in my taxable accounts. I get dividends in my non-taxable accounts, but they mostly comprised of mutual funds that track indexes so it doesn’t translate well when I talk about dividends in those accounts.

In January I earned $18.87 in dividends. In February I got $20.57. Not much, but it’s money I didn’t have to work to get at all. Plus a 9% one month increase is a heck of a lot better than I got in my savings account. Unlike trading which isn’t much work either, but you do have to monitor the trade. With dividends it just shows up in your account.

This is where I got dividends in February:
ARP (Atlas Resource Partners LP) – $2.56
AGNC (American Capital Agency Corp) – $0.88
CNSL (Consolidated Communications) – $11.75
HAS (Hasbro Inc) – $1.29
O (Realty Income Corp) – $ 0.57
ORC (Orchid Capital Inc) – $3.51
Interest – .01 (not really dividend, but it is part of my taxable accounts)

I added PER (Sand Ridge Permian Trust), WMC (Western Asset Mortgage Capitol Corp), and YUM (Yum Brands) which will also payout in February, so I should see a bigger payout next quarter in May. As far as the year goes I am up to $39.44. Considering I earned $39.85 in all of 2014 I think I can say I am going to do better than last year.

I am still trying to grow my dividends funds so they can be another part of my financial strategy. As such all the money I earn in dividends will be re-invested into new stocks. The idea being that it will compound along with my other stocks for higher returns.

Full disclosure – Long in all the above mentioned stocks.

Dividend Outlook

I don’t know what most people looking for financial freedom do in the morning. As for me mornings seem to be the best time of the day for me. Everyone else is asleep so it gives me a little bit of extra time. I think that is what financial freedom means to me, the ability to carve out more time. Thinking about financial freedom it seems to be a lot about money, but it really has to do more with time. Time is definitely worth more than money. Anyhow, that is enough of the morning philosophizing.

The real reason I wanted to write was because I was updating my dividend spreadsheet (something I suspect a lot of financial freedom seekers do) and I wanted to put it into writing how my dividends were doing (for posterity). My investments are currently in three different accounts. I have two taxable accounts, a Sharebuilder and a Robinhood account. I also have one non-taxable account, a Great West Retirement account which is run by my employer.

Other than the contributions I make into my Great West account, I don’t really manage it that much. All the funds in there are mutual funds with a mix of bonds. I started that account in my early 20’s putting in $200 a month and I have been slowly increasing my contribution with pay raises. Right now I invest $350 a month in that account. Reviewing the dividend section of that account I received $2,224.57 in dividend payments, or, another way of putting it $185.38 per month.

My other two accounts are taxable accounts. They are all in stock and I actively manage both of those portfolios. I started contributing to those accounts in 2012. In the past I have been seeking mostly growth stocks, but starting last year I have been looking into dividend stocks. I am currently contributing about $300 a month to those accounts (sometimes a little bit more if my side business makes money). I currently own a piece of 16 different companies that produce dividends(ARP, AGNC, CNSL, FPI, FTR, FUN, GE, HAS, LOAN, O, ORC, SNV, SPLS, UL, WIN, YUM). Looking at my spreadsheet I am projecting $241.96 in dividends this year, or, another way of putting it $20.16 per month.

OK, so bottom line, at roughly $205 a month I am no where near financial freedom, but I want to be! To that end I will just keep on contributing. My goal is to eventually produce $1860 in monthly revenue (that is the least I figure I can get by with in California). As you can see I am at about 11% of that goal by way of dividends. Part of the plan also includes growth stocks and reoccurring revenue from some side businesses I have. A long way to go, but at least I have something. It makes me happy to know that I am at least trying to get to my goal of financial freedom.

Disclosure: Long ARP, AGNC, CNSL, FPI, FTR, FUN, GE, HAS, LOAN, O, ORC, SNV, SPLS, UL, WIN, and YUM.

Weekend Stock Thoughts 1/19/15

Overall, my paper value took some big hits this months as the stock market went down. Oil continues to decline which means the stock market has been a very volatile. Dividend investing seems to be working out pretty good for me, but growth and momentum stocks haven’t been doing so well. Which is sad because that there is a lot of money to be made in growth and momentum stocks. I have been experimenting recently with a few REITs, we will have to see how those develop. I like the idea of getting monthly dividends, but they seem a bit more riskier. Without further ado, here is where I am currently at.

$AGNC (American Capital Agency Corp.) Cost Per Share: $22.13 Current Price: $21.80
This is what is known as a REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust). What they do is they take capital from investors like me and then lend it out into income producing real estate and then pay it back out to the investors on a monthly basis. I have added a few of these types of stocks as a way to boost my dividend income on months where dividends are not so common (like February).

$BRK.B (Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Class B) Cost Per Share: $134.92 Current Price: $149.21
Not much to report here. Declined a little bit this last week in price but overall the trend line is intact so it is still good.

$CAMP (Cal Amp) Cost Per Share: $18.54 Current Price:$16.57
As a growth stock this company had a very bad week with it’s stock price. Not worried about it too much. There are still a lot of orders for this company in the works.

$CNSL (Consolidated Communications) Cost Per Share: $21.62 Current Price: $24.12
Still in it, still getting dividends.

$FPI (Farmland Partners Inc.) Cost Per Share: $11.71 Current Price: $10.78
Still a little underwater on my CPS but as dividends comes in that of course goes down.

$FTR (Frontier Communications Corp.) Cost Per Share: $6.62 Current Price: $6.83
I read a lot of negative articles on this company and considering how utilities have been doing I thought it would have gone down but it didn’t, it went up. No complaint from me, nice dividend stock.

$GE (General Electric Co.) Cost Per Share: $27.82 Current Price: $23.59
Still holding. This company unfortunately has a lot of exposure to energy, but that could be a boom soon.

$HAS (Hasbro Inc.) Cost per share: $54.32 Current Price: $52.54
This is a new purchase for me. I bought it because I wanted more dividend payouts for February.

$LOAN (Manhattan Bridge Capital Inc.) Cost Per Share: $3.79 Current Price: $3.60
Value went down recently but the dividend payout is good and I just got paid so I am happy with where I am at.

$NQ (NQ Mobile) Cost Per Share: $6.13 Current Price: $4.08
I sold out on this stock at $4.10. The current rumor is that the former CEO left on a mental leave of absence. The numbers on their buyback announcement and their intention to go through with the Sky Mobile merger don’t add up to me. I’d rather take the loss and move on.

$O (Realty Income Delaware) Cost Per Share: $48.57 Current Price: $52.65
I got into this stock on a dip in price and plan to use it for it’s monthly dividend.

$ORC (Orchid Capital Incorporated) Cost Per Share: $13.66 Current Price: $13.23
Can’t complain about monthly dividends.

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $3.92 Current Price: $2.67
Lowered my cost per share a bit with some additional shares but I am still way underwater on this stock. I think the conference call on 1/28/15 will be good, but you never know with this stock.

$SNV (Synovus Financial Corp.) Cost Per Share: 27.12 Current Price: $25.05
Keeping steady on this stock.

$SPLS (Staples Inc.) Cost Per Share: $12.99 Current Price: $17.35
I have the dividends in this stock automatically reinvested which funny enough made the CPS go up, but I ok with that because those additional shares are in my mind free.

$UL (Unilever PLC) Cost Per Share: $40.76, Current Price: $41.78
Still buying.

$VLTC (Voltari Corp.) Cost Per Share: $1.26, Current Price: $1.22
Like Net Quin mobile this company derives income from mobile marketing. It’s stock history hasn’t been that good, but I like their database management which I think might help out the stock price.

$WIN (Windstream Holdings Inc.) Cost Per Share: $10.67 Current Price: $8.24
I am holding on this stock. The Street has a lot of short interest on it but I think it will be ok.

Stock Idea for 2015

2014 was a banner year for me. I learned a lot about many different stock investments. The best part about it is that I earned a lot of money! Thanks in big part to the stock market I can say that I am not completely debt free. My main goal now for my stocks is to be financially independent. I don’t want to not work, but I want to know that if for some reason I couldn’t work me and my family would be ok. I think the best way to achieve that is going to be with dividend stocks. I am also starting up a little fund for a trip I have planned to go to Japan and climb Mt. Fuji. If I can save well I think I can be ready for a nice trip in July of 2016. If I plan really well I will have a nice vacation fund that will continually repay itself.

I am looking for good growth companies that might have the potential for buyouts or buybacks as well. In December I added a new investment account through a company called Robinhood. It should be an interesting experiment. They offer no fee trades on US traded stocks. It is a very “bare bones” type of trading. The good thing is the app that you use to trade is very easy to use. Currently they only accept new accounts by invitation. If you are interested in an invitation please let me know (I have 5 that I can give out).

Here is where I am as of today:

$BRK.B (Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Class B) Cost Per Share: $134.92 Current Price: $150.15
The stock in general is doing well. I wouldn’t call it a value right now at this price, but it is steady in it’s growth.

$CAMP  (Cal Amp) Cost Per Share: $18.54 Current Price:$18.30
This is stock is a value at this price. I plan to buy more. It will be easy to flip it at $20.

$CNSL (Consolidated Communications) Cost Per Share: $21.62 Current Price: $27.83
Still in it, still collecting dividends. I plan to be here for a long time.

$FPI (Farmland Partners Inc.) Cost Per Share: $11.72 Current Price: $10.41
They have a lot of good real estate deals in the works which is good, but I am not sure if the real estate market is coming back this year. At this point I rank this stock a hold.

$FTR (Frontier Communications Corp.) Cost Per Share: $6.62 Current Price: $6.67
I read a lot of negative news on this stock, but it is kicking strong. I think we are on an uptrend on this one and will probably buy more soon.

$GE (General Electric Co.) Cost Per Share: $27.82 Current Price: $25.27
Downgrading to a hold for me.

$LOAN (Manhattan Bridge Capital Inc.) Cost Per Share: $3.79 Current Price: $4.00
Just started a position on this dividend paying stock.

$NQ (NQ Mobile) Cost Per Share: $6.13 Current Price: $3.91
Poor management. I am just trying to strategically sell out what I have left. That last conference call was a joke, the only two questions given were sad and who let’s Carson Block onto a conference call?

$ORC (Orchid Capital Incorporated) Cost Per Share: $13.66 Current Price: $13.05
A good dividend stock. I think it will bee a nice steady form of income for me.

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $4.60 Current Price: $3.00
It has until the first week of February to make and announce a new sale of forklift units or I am selling.

$SNV (Synovus Financial Corp.) Cost Per Share: 27.05 Current Price: $27.09
I really like the dividend payout on this stock.

$SPLS (Staples Inc.) Cost Per Share: $12.96 Current Price: $18.12
Everyone thought the merger couldn’t happen and now it is. Traffic in the stores continue to do well.

$UL (Unilever PLC) Cost Per Share: $40.75, Current Price: $42.42
Still buying.

$WIN (Windstream Holdings Inc.) Cost Per Share: $10.67 Current Price: $8.24
I am holding on this stock. The Street has a lot of short interest on it but I think it will be ok.

2014 started really well and kind of died out in the end as investors cashed out. I am hoping the same trend continues for 2015. If so I think I can time some of my purchases a little better.

Weekend Stock Thoughts 12/7/14

The Russian Ruble has really taken a beating lately with falling oil prices. The general consensus seems to be that we are in a new era of low oil prices but like always I see the prices going down a lot faster than they go up, but it has been good to our economy in the short term to have less expenses. In the long term I think consumers will continue to suffer from short term memory and oil is going to eventually go back which makes the current stock prices in energy stocks very appealing to me.

This month I got a little bit of an extra boost in that I got paid out on my overtime. I used almost all of that money to invest into new stocks. I much rather save up my money and get closer to financial freedom than to buy a new laptop or a bunch of new music. I guess that is not the consumer way of things, but to me it is all about putting it into perspective and not cheating myself in the long term by pleasing myself today.

As such I am currently building up a new set of dividend stocks. I now have enough dividend stocks to get something (also very small) every month. My plan is to slowly build on that until I have a nice monthly revenue. That being said I still haven’t given up active investing and have several swing plays I am currently going after.

Here is where I am as of today:

$BRK.B (Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Class B) Cost Per Share: $134.92 Current Price: $150.68

I can’t believe how much money I make off this stock. It is just a class B stock, it isn’t like it even has voting rights. Tells me people are very undecided right now, but I guess their loss is my gain.

$CAMP (Cal Amp) Cost Per Share: $18.54 Current Price:$19.21

Kind of subdued right now, but still doing well. I expect a new contract announcement soon.

$CNSL (Consolidated Communications) Cost Per Share: $21.62 Current Price: $27.38

Still my favorite dividend stock. Nice and steady.

$FPI (Farmland Partners Inc.) Cost Per Share: $11.72 Current Price: $11.11

Still not sure about this stock, but it is slowly making it’s way and the dividends make it tolerable.

$FTR (Frontier Communications Corp.) Cost Per Share: $6.62 Current Price: $6.90

$GE (General Electric Co.) Cost Per Share: $27.82 Current Price: $26.02

Definitely a stock affected by the oil crisis, but I think there is opportunity here to accumulate and so I probably will be adding soon.

$NQ (NQ Mobile) Cost Per Share: $6.13 Current Price: $6.54

Slowly rising, I can see the short interest decreasing I have a good feeling it will see it’s day soon.

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $4.60 Current Price: $3.60

Added at 3.48 to lower my cost on this stock. You’d think a 20M contract would be a good reason for it to shoot up but shorts are doing a good job keeping it down. I expect more details next week on the new telecommunications deal which should help it a little bit. February is going to be the crucial test when they announce earnings.

$SNV (Synovus Financial Corp.) Cost Per Share: 27.12 Current Price: $26.49

I probably bought this stock a little high, but I really like the company. A small financial bank with good dividends makes this stock very attractive. I have been watching them for a long time looking for a good entry point and felt like I was chasing a bit, but in the end just decided to go for it.

$RSH (Radio Shack Corp.) Cost Per Share: $1.21 Current Price: $.59 Price Sold: $.63

It was hard for me to take such a steep loss, but I know when to get out and that is good. Lender is calling a default which I think is not accurate, but when even your lender doesn’t believe in you it is time to move on. The lending terms even as they were, were kind of harsh. They really need to close more stores quickly to stop the bleed, but all this negative publicity in December is not helping the situation. Unfortunately, bankruptcy is their best hope, but I do hope they get a buyout. The name has been out there for 90 years.

$SPLS (Staples Inc.) Cost Per Share: $12.96 Current Price: $14.38

I love it when a plan comes together. I have noticed by the foot traffic I see that this company is doing well and it shows in their stock price.

$UL (Unilever PLC) Cost Per Share: $40.75, Current Price: $42.42

I love how you have to use their products over and over again.

$WIN (Windstream Holdings Inc.) Cost Per Share: $10.67, Current Price: $9.70

A lot of day traders are downgrading this stock saying it can’t keep up their dividend payout. I think there is still hope in this stock and I hope to see a reversal soon. Many times day traders say the opposite of what they do. Follow the options and you get a better picture of how people really think.

Weekend Stock Thoughts 11/9/14

The markets have seen a correction, gas prices are down significantly, and the Republicans have taken over the Congress. This is definitely a time of volatility in the markets. My guess is that we are going to go down, but this could create some good opportunities in the market for buying. I have been buying a lot of dividend stocks, this is a new market strategy for me, but I figure it should be interesting for a long term play.

It has been awhile and I haven’t been very disciplined in posting but here is where I am currently at:

$BRK.B (Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Class B) Cost Per Share: $134.92 Current Price: $143.61

$CAMP  (Cal Amp) Cost Per Share: $18.54 Current Price:$19.70

Still trying my patience. It still has all the signs in my opinion of a breakout stock but it is definitely hard to wait it out.

$CNSL (Consolidated Communications) Cost Per Share: $21.62 Current Price: $26.00

Still buying, still liking the dividend income on this stock. Steady as she goes…

$FPI (Farmland Partners Inc.) Cost Per Share: $11.72 Current Price: $10.59

Not so sure as when I bought it. I thought land prices were going to go up, but real estate has turned into a very selective market. So now I am a bit uneasy.

$FTR (Frontier Communications Corp.) Cost Per Share: $6.62 Current Price: $6.44

Another dividend stock, I really like the yield but it is a bit of a risk place right now for communications.

$GE (General Electric Co.) Cost Per Share: $27.82 Current Price: $26.41

Energy stocks not such a great play as I thought it would be, but I guess I will have to bag it for awhile here.

$HYSR (Hypersolar Inc.) Cost Per Share: $.05 Current Price: $.02, Sold Price: $.02

Took the loss and moved on. It is a sleeper for now.

$NQ (NQ Mobile) Cost Per Share: $6.13 Current Price: $7.18

Shorts still have a hold on this one, but not for too much longer. Earnings should be reported soon and it will pick up the pace.

$PAL (North America Palladium Ltd.) Cost Per Share: $.38 Current Price: $.15, Sold Price: $.19

The trend told me to get out earlier and I didn’t but I at least I cut my losses.

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $5.60 Current Price: $5.30

Not liking how it never seems to keep it’s gains but I still think it will see it’s day as soon as some new contracts are confirmed.

$RSH (Radio Shack Corp.) Cost Per Share: $1.21 Current Price: $.9465

Not good seeing this trading like a penny stock, but I think if the company can close some stores and get it’s online store going it might have a chance.

$SPLS (Staples Inc.) Cost Per Share: $12.96 Current Price: $12.93

There is a Staples near my house and I have noticed foot traffic to the store is picking up, maybe this dividend stock will pick up as well?

$UL (Unilever PLC) Cost Per Share: $40.75, Current Price: $39.98

I like the company and the idea of things that people will always need, planning on keeping this one for a long time.

$WIN (Windstream Holdings Inc.) Cost Per Share: $10.67, Current Price: $9.55

I went for this one as a energy/dividend play, but in light of the current Congress I might have to bail out of this one soon. I don’t think the Republicans will let it fly.

Weekend Stocks 8/30/14

Everyone hates the bull market going on right now, but it is really strong. Russia, fracking, high transportation cost, congress gridlock it doesn’t matter the stock market does not care. The rich are getting richer and everyone else apparently is going to have to pay for it. I would love to see a pullback but I am not seeing the catalyst to bring that about. That being said I am in accumulation mode. My strategy right now is to weed out some of my losers and add to the winners. I am also starting to play a few dividend stocks. The idea of “set it and forget” sounds kind of good to me right now. In my longer retirement accounts I have a lot of SP500 index funds which are going off like crazy, which is nice to see the money come into those accounts.

Coming into next week here is where I am at:

$BRK.B (Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Class B) Cost Per Share: $134.92 Current Price: $137.25

Warren Buffet has got 10 Billion in cash sitting in this stock. That is more money than have the planet’s country’s GDPs. The reason I bought it was because they own GEICO which means I get a 5% discount on my auto insurance. Include the 2% gain I made in one week, it is like Berkshire is paying me to have GEICO insurance.

$CAMP  (Cal Amp) Cost Per Share: $18.54 Current Price:$19.28

Gained 4% this week which is awesome. Lots of deals in this stock should push it to the mid 20’s, good case study to be patient.

$CNSL (Consolidated Communications) Cost Per Share: $21.55 Current Price: $24.38

Still buying, keeping the cost per share the same while adding. Really liking the dividend income on this stock.

$GE (General Electric Co.) Cost Per Share: $27.84 Current Price: $25.98

I am kind of drifting to energy plays but I see a trend line pointing me to $30, plus it has a nice dividend payout.

$HYSR (Hypersolar Inc.) Cost Per Share: $.05 Current Price: $.027

$MNGA (Magnegas Gas Corp.) Sold Price: $1.15 Cost Per Share: $1.32 Current Price: $1.17

I thought the Russia situation would help this stock, but I was wrong. Their latest presentation did not impress me. Not a big fan of Power Point presentation. Looked kind of childish.

$NQ (NQ Mobile) Cost Per Share: $6.13 Current Price: $6.54

In kind of deep right now on this one as it represents 20% of my portfolio. It is going to either pay well or it is going to hurt A LOT. I figure I got 50% shot right now, really need that 20F to come out, hoping late September, early October.

$PAL (North America Palladium Ltd.) Cost Per Share: $.38 Current Price: $.27

You’d think the rising palladium prices would help this more, but it didn’t. Guess I will just have to bag hold it for a little longer, but it is a minor player in my portfolio so I can be patient.

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $5.60 Current Price: $5.58

I keep winning with this stock. So volatile, but so predictable! I am down .02 cents right now, but I have no doubt I will get that back out when it hits $6.50 and then I probably will buy it again at $5.50, because people are inpatient and I am making money on that.

Weekend Thoughts 8/2/14

Sounds cliché but I have been super busy with family stuff and haven’t posted lately. Doesn’t mean I have not been trading though. I just got called out online so I guess I should update my trades:

Coming into next week here is where I am at:

$CAMP  (Cal Amp) Cost Per Share: $18.54 Current Price:$17.30

Should have sold at $20, long way to $25 right now.

$CNSL (Consolidated Communications) Cost Per Share: $21.55 Current Price: $22.51

Still buying more stock little by little. Harder now that they beat estimates, but solow and steady wins this one.

$HYSR (Hypersolar Inc.) Cost Per Share: $.05 Current Price: $.033

Speculation market is hard. Still way underwater here, but haven’t sold yet for a loss.

$IDN (Intelli-Check Inc.) Sold Price: $.71 Cost Per Share: $1.07 Current Price: $.65

Lost a bit on this one but had to cut my losses.

$MNGA (Magnegas Gas Corp.) Cost Per Share: $1.32 Current Price: $1.31

Market slowed that express train, but the new product is good and I think I can still wait for that $2.

$NQ (NQ Mobile) Cost Per Share: $6.02 Current Price: $6.55

Bought in hard at 4.42 to bring down average. This is nothing but an overzealous short attack that this point. Company might go private, but I am ahead so it is ok.

$PAL (North America Palladium Ltd.) Cost Per Share: $.38 Current Price: $.26

Took a bad turn with the Russian controversy, which is weird because I would have thought it would help it, but it didn’t.

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $4.19 Current Price: $5.38

Added a little bit recently to this but kept my cost per share the same. I think 7 could come up soon. Just hope the CEO gets a little bit more organized.

$RNN (Rexahn Pharmaceuticals Inc.) Sold price: $.84 Cost Per Share: $1.31 Current Price: $.73

Took a loss, just wasn’t moving fast enough. I do have a little in another longer term account but the average there is 1.03, but I might be selling that soon too.

$UQM (UQM Technologies Inc.) Sold Price: $2.05 Cost Per Share: $3.11 Current Price: $1.63

Wasn’t a clean escape from the zombies, I think I might have lost a leg out there, but at least I can move on for another day.

The markets last week were just brutal. Not much better way to put it when the S&P wipes out a month worth of profit in a few days. Overall I would say it is going to be rough for bulls out there for this quarter, but I am an optimist and I do think opportunities are out there. I am just going to a little more research to find them.

Weekend Stocks 6/21/14

Well overall the markets seem to be doing well. Energy continues to be a big topic as oil goes above $107 per barrel as we see unrest in Iraq. Gold and silver are also up which makes my Morgan silver dollars look better every day.

Coming into next week here is where I am at:

$CAMP  (Cal Amp) Cost Per Share: $18.54 Current Price:$20.00

Doing really well here. Cal Amp is poised to go back to $25 and I will be ready to collect.

$CNSL (Consolidated Communications) Cost Per Share: $21.15 Current Price: $21.53

Still accumulating this stock. I really like the charts it shows. One day this stock could be my retirement. Nice steady gain. Only worried now about a possible buyout that would stop my fun.

$HYSR (Hypersolar Inc.) Cost Per Share: $.06 Current Price: $.0339

Still scuba diving here..

$IDN (Intelli-Check Inc.) Cost Per Share: $1.07 Current Price: $.74

Sill on the sidelines.

$MNGA (Magnegas Gas Corp.) Cost Per Share: $1.32 Current Price: $1.56

$2 coming like an express train.

$NQ (NQ Mobile) Cost Per Share: $9.85 Current Price: $7.35

Went under fast, but game isn’t over yet.

$PAL (North America Palladium Ltd.) Cost Per Share: $.38 Current Price: $.38

.50 seems likely but question is if we can do .90.

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $4.19 Current Price: $4.80

Options are holding this under $5, but they can’t keep it down forever.

$RNN (Rexahn Pharmaceuticals Inc.) Cost Per Share: $1.31 Current Price: $.86

Wake me up at 1.20, better yet wake me up now because I don’t want to dream my life away.

$UQM (UQM Technologies Inc.) Cost Per Share: $3.11 Current Price: $2.13

Zombie stock, if I ever make money here run. The end will be near.

Updated Stocks 6/4/14

I have been busy with some other projects lately but I wanted to at least update my stock standings. I recently sold a lot of stock to pay off some old debt I had, but I can now say I am completely debt free. Not a millionaire but it is nice to know thanks to my stock trades I now owe no one anything (monetarily)except for perhaps gratitude, never can get out of that debt.

Here is where I currently stand:

$CAMP  (Cal Amp) Cost Per Share: $18.54 Current Price:$18.49

Going for a bounce play here. I sold this at $24 before and I think I can do it again.

$CNSL (Consolidated Communications) Cost Per Share: $20.23 Current Price: $19.96

Still accumulating this stock. A little here and a little there. Dividends reward longs on this stock.

$HYSR (Hypersolar Inc.) Cost Per Share: $.06 Current Price: $.041

Way underwater here, but target was 1 year so I am ok.

$IDN (Intelli-Check Inc.) Cost Per Share: $1.07 Current Price: $.73

Still down on this stock, will be on the sidelines for awhile here.

$MNGA (Magnegas Gas Corp.) Cost Per Share: $1.32 Current Price: $1.52

This has been a no brainer for me. I easily see $2, if lucky $2.50-$3. How I got it as low as I did was just lucky timing.

$NQ (NQ Mobile) Cost Per Share: $9.80 Current Price: $9.99

Last time I bought this stock I bought it at $10 and sold for $20 and that was before audit results were out. Carson clipped this stock good, but now they are going to regret it. The company has some good partnerships. Sprint looks very promising.

$PAL (North America Palladium Ltd.) Cost Per Share: $.38 Current Price: $.273

Sold, made money. Rebought but didn’t time it well and now I am a bit down, but still got hope here.

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $4.19 Current Price: $4.35

All news I see is good here. Will take a bit of profit near $6.

$RNN (Rexahn Pharmaceuticals Inc.) Cost Per Share: $1.31 Current Price: $.85

A momentum stock with no volume sad.

$UQM (UQM Technologies Inc.) Cost Per Share: $3.11 Current Price: $1.78

Dead money. Only reason I still have it is because I own so little of it, so not even worth worrying about it.
