CSCO- Limit sell hit today!

30 May

CSCO buy on my part was due to quick jump in share price on May 15th, I bought at its day high early in the morning thinking it’ll keep on going up from there on out.  That did not transpired, so I held this stock for a couple weeks with depressed prices.  I wanted a quick profit to offset my penny stock loss of $34.61.  So today my limit sell hit today @ $24.55, I walk away with $35.00 profit.  Unfortunately, I missed out on $10 gain as CSCO went above my sell limit.  With the 15 days I held CSCO, the interest will eat into my questionable trades.

Nope, I didn’t blog about these two stocks before as they are just for play with my new dollar trades at Virtual Brokers.

Crazy Sells and Buys

17 Sep

Today, I just sold off four stocks to revamp my portfolio.

CHE.UN from my Scotia Itrade – This unit trust had been good to me.  I had a pretty good run with this one, but over the last few months, it’s been taking a beating.  I am sad to let this one go actually.  It had been paying me out consistently at $40/month.  Sometimes, it’s better to sell out before it goes for a free fall.  I had hopes it’ll bounce up, but hit a road block.

CSCO from my Scotia Itrade –  This recent buy has been a little to slow to pick up a rebound. The free up money will either go to pay off some debt that has been adding up for me.

NM from my TFSA Questrade –  Had chances of selling at a small profit.  My mentality back then was to hold and hope for bigger gains.  Lesson learned is to profit whenever and go onto the next best thing.  Held this falling one for a good 9 months.  Really dissapointing.

UCO from my TFSA Quetrade –  Crude oil hasn’t risen as fast as I thought it would for this year.  Another big loss I took to set forth another direction in my trading style. 

Here are my buys to replace my sellers: 

I picked up 2000 shares of GIX.TO @ 35 cents.  It had a good pop up today.  Hoping this one will make a good run out before hitting its peak. 

I’ve added more to my position at UC.TO.  The average cost now is at 40,000 shares @10.65 cents.  This can either end up badly or make me really happy down the road.  Check back in a few months.  

Best Buy (BBY) 100 @ 37.15(USD) is purely for seasonal play.  Waiting on the Oct 5th dividend and the uptick in the spirit of Christmas!  Hoping this one will bring me a good present!

Time for me to let these budding penny stocks to blossom when they are ready!
