Wednesday 01/15/2020

     This post is a continuation of the $50 a month stock challenge I started October 14, 2019.  Click on, "No Commission Stock Trades", on the right side of the page to read from the start.

I start the month with $214.98 to invest and that will be my self-imposed trading limit for the whole month. 

     $214.98 x 2% = $4.30 profit needed.

     $214.98 self-imposed January trading limit.
    -$   8.48 invested 2 WPG @ $4.24
    -$ 61.60 invested 1 VZ @ $61.60  ($0.61 payable 02/03
    -$ 35.10 invested 2 CXW @ $17.55  ($0.44 payable 1/15)
     $109.80 balance to invest

7:05am (CST)
Enter "GTC-EXT-Limit" SELL orders
     2 WPG @ $4.40
     1 VZ @ $62.15
     2 CXW @ $17.90 
     1 HP @ $46.50

Today CXW paid $0.44 a share X 2 shares = $0.88.  Love dividend paying stocks, getting paid to wait for the price to recover.

     I am walking out the door right now but hope to be back by noon.


Enter "Ext-Day-Limit" BUY order

     1 HP @$45.75 (9:15am FILLED}

11:30am (CST)
     I am back and see that my BUY 1 HP @ $45.75 order was filled. HP has an ex-date of 02/07/2020 paying $0.71. I have enter a  "GTC-EXT-LIMIT" SELL order @ $46.50. That would be a $0.75 profit as opposed to holding for the dividend of $0.71.
