It’s been a while since I’ve come out with a post. Just for the readers – I’m a public accounting firm in a top 10 firm that audits SEC registrants and the last week I’ve been in the middle of our own regulators inspection process on the audit work that we perform – therefore, my days have been approximately 12-15 hours long, depending on the day, been a whirlwind, but thank God for Bert, the other Diplomat for continuing to write away. Thank you Bert. I’ll also do a spin off with him and write about my October Watch List. Let’s see what stocks are high on my list and which one’s I would actually consider to invest into. “There’s only one October!”
Now seems to be a pretty good time to perform a stock analysis as we approach the middle of the month! We have had ups and downs within the Market and it really can’t decide which way it truly wants to go. With interest rates remaining on hold (thanks Fed… – was really hoping for a bigger discount, kidding!), the market has been a tick upwards over the last 1-2 weeks. I wanted to hop into a sector and stock that has been beaten down this year with what is perceived to be sound dividend metrics. How about the technology sector? Seagate Technologies (STX) – you are up!
