Weekly Purchases - 10/02/15

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Weekly Update

Highlights:

Well its that time again to update my purchases along with my sells.  I look at my portfolio as a way to freedom, freedom from the everyday rat race.  The below information has been taken from the last 2 weeks.  With the down turn in the markets, I felt compelled to buy as much as I could.  Several new positions this month include FAST, ACE, CMI and GILD.  I continue to like many of the energy companies such as XOM, EPD, and CVX.  Also I really like EMR, IBM, UTX.  One company that I added at the beginning of this was Microsoft.  This company is a cash flow machine and one that I could eventually see myself owning $10,000 in.  It has a huge cash pile of around $90 billion.  I would love to see it fall 10-15% but I don't think that is going to happen so I added to my position.  On Monday, I probably will add to my EMR position as it looks as though major bottom could be in place.  I like the fact that this company has been raising its dividends for over 50 years.
