Wow, what a crazy end to the month! I felt like the last week was filled with can’t miss stock market action. It seemed like every minute I opened my eyes another chunk of my market value was missing. But it is okay, the decline has two factors I love: it increases the power of dividend re-investing and it creates new buying opportunities. Lanny recently wrote about on Friday 4 stocks that he is considering re-upping his position in because of this decline. For me, I may finally make my long-awaited move into the financial sector. I know I will be purchasing something next week; I just don’t know what that stock is yet. But it seems like Aflac is a very solid potential purchase and may be forcing my hand. Anyways, before I continue to babble about future purposes, I figured I would review my month of July Investment Report.
