Lanny’s Recent Stock Purchase – Cisco (CSCO)

I am typing in a secure place at the moment and it could very well be thanks to Cisco (CSCO), which is the stock I purchased on Tuesday, June 13th.  I am ready to just go for it and keep buying stock fundamentally sound, dividend paying & increasing, globally recognized companies.  I am on that pursuit train to financial freedom and one doesn’t get there by sitting on the sidelines, but lacing up and getting into the game.  On Tuesday, I purchased stock into Cisco.
