Potash Corp - Possible Bear Trap???

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Trade Ideas

I like the setup here on Potash Corp.  It recently reported one of its worst quarterly earnings in its history, but yet the stock has failed to breakdown.  It also reported a 60% dividend cut.  If a stocks fails to breakdown on horrible news it usually means that the tide is about to change.  I plan on adding to my position this week.  A breakout above 18-18.50 would be very positive.

AXP - Looks Very Cheap

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Trade Ideas

American Express looks cheap even after the recent 30% rise in its stock.  I plan to add to my position here soon.  Notice how the EV/EBITDA ratio is almost as cheap as during the finacial crisis of 2008.  Also noticed how price bottomed before the ratio did.  My biggest issue with the stock is the low starting yield of 1.6%, but I am not going to let that stop me from buying one of the Worlds top brands.

TROW - Adding to my Long Term Position

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Trade Ideas

TROW is currently resting on its 30 year uptrend line.  I feel that right now is a good time to add to your longer term positions.  TROW has zero long term debt and has been increasing its dividends for more than 25 years in a row.  Current yield is over 3% and it has a history of paying out special dividends ever couple of years.

Dividend Income Update July 2016

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Dividends

I just got back from a 2 week trip visiting Seattle and Vancouver with my family.  I also got a chance to attend the Sprott Natural Resources Conference in Vancouver.  I'll probably do a little overview of the conference in a separate post.  I got to hear the CEO's of 3 of my largest resources companies, Ivanhoe Mines, Pretivm Resources and Nevsun Resources.

Here are a couple photos from the trip.  The weather was absolutely amazing, with most days in the low 70's.

After being out of contact for almost two weeks I have a lot to get caught up on.  So I am going to dive right into my numbers for the month of July, 2016.

My monthly income was 60% higher than the same month a year ago and up 37% over last quarter.  I took in $332.37 for the month of July.  My portfolio value increased from $216,606 to $235,164 which also includes my contributions of $3935.  

I ended the month with my annual future dividends at $8350 up from $8164 last month.

Portfolio Value

Since I tend to take profits more often than the typical buy and hold dividend investor, my Cost Basis and Portfolio Value ratio are not an accurate reflection of my overall profits within the portfolio.
