I did read 10 random investing articles, so that was a success. I even bought my first 3 Dividend stocks this month: INTC, PM and ADM. They’re all trading down today :p
The problem with the articles is that they seemed too un-focused. I’m tailoring my November goal to delve into topics of investing.
November goal: Study Stock basics(10) and Index investing(10) 22 months ago
My goal for September is to read at least 10 investing related articles. 22 months ago
I finally opened my first HISA with ING Direct. I feel silly for not getting this done sooner. 2 years ago
Picked up “The Intelligent Investor” and also “Security Analysis” both by Benjamin Graham. I flipped through them, they seem dense and a little technical but simple enough for a beginner to understand.
It’s also a mid-term goal to have completely absorbed all of the information in both of these books by the end of this year. No point in rushing. 2 years ago
Today I opened a Roth IRA with Vanguard and contributed the max for 2011 into a couple of funds. 2 years ago
ok some jerk banned my last account for posting a link to a non-commercial investing article, but I’m just posting this update again for the record: I’m still educating myself in finance and investment and I’ve been learning about international investing, specifically ADRs which I had never heard of.
For anyone interested in international stock investing, check out ADRs! It’s an interesting branch of investing. 2 years ago
