skr5eSeptember goal success (sort of)! November goal

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) 18 months ago

I finally opened my first HISA with ING Direct. I feel silly for not getting this done sooner. 21 months ago


skr5eSome book learnin'

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. 23 months 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
