Summary
  • Took me three years but I finally hit 100K. At the rate I'm going in 27 years I'll hit one million.


April possible buys: 

  • FLO:  below $17.00. Preferably $16.5. Someone bought a huge amount of puts this morning for April and the stock crashed 3,5%.
  • SO:  at 4.5% if possible. One more buy and that will bring SO to 100 shares.
  • HASI: Flip 7 more shares to reach 100.
  • BGS: if it crashes back down to  $33.50
  • OHI: one more buy to make 100. 

Trying something new to become a more interesting person goal:

This was a hectic month so I tried something small. Since I added Flowers Foods to my portfolio I decided to try some Dave's Killer Bread. I have never tasted non-GMO organic bread before. Picked up a couple of loaves at my local Costco. Not bad at all. Good texture and it doesn't have that bleach taste on normal wheat bread. 
  

that does it for me. Happy late Easter!

  1. At least you were able to hit a milestone since your limit orders didn't hit! You almost got to $300 in dividends which is a awesome. Keep up the good work and keep looking for value opportunities. Eventually you'll be rewarded. All the best.

  2. Awesome hitting that 100k mark, I just passed it around New Years time. I thought that the 3.5% hit to FLO may have been for the recall on those muffins but it was a small recall so that didn't make sense to me. I haven't seen 'Dave's Killer Bread' near me but 'Natures Own' is everywhere. Glad you enjoyed the bread!
