Yesterday was a very fun day for me as I quickly went from a passive trader who was standing to the sideline in a matter of minutes. My purchase on Friday shared a lot of parallels with a situation from a month or two ago, which resulted in learning a valuable investing about always having a watch list prepared. The best part…the result was different and I couldn’t be happier. See why I purchased Emerson Electric (EMR) yesterday.
I have been compiling some cash recently and had enough to establish a great entry-level position in a company. Over the last few months, there have been many events impacting the market and pushing the price of some great companies lower and lower. So I wanted to make this purchase count and pick up a rock-solid dividend paying stock, one that I now think should be included on Lanny’s infamous foundation stock listing. Unfortunately, the title gave it away. See why I decided to invest in Emerson Electric this week.
