UPDATED: Weekly Purchases - 7/05/15

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Weekly Update

Highlights:

I continue to focus on energy companies as my largest percentage of purchases.  I also initiated my first biotech position with 1 share in Amgen.  Both FELP and ARLP are a contrarian bet on the coal sector.  With most companies on the brink of bankruptcy, I have started to initiate positions in two of the only companies that can make money at these price levels.  I admit that I may be 6-12 months early on this play but by focusing on the 2 best companies, both of which pay very nice dividends, I can hopefully wait it out.

Looking at the sell side of things, the only reason I sold these positions was because I didn't have any additional funds to place into the Teladoc IPO.  It was a speculation on my part that I would make more on the IPO of TDOC that remain in these positions.  It was a speculation that paid off very well with a gain of 55%.  I plan to purchase these positions back ASAP.
