PS, I need another stock that doesn't cost $300 per share so I can get the loose change invested when my $2500 is gone for the month.

Some growthy REITs I like are the cell tower companies AMT and CCI and data center companies DLR and COR.

Appreciate the suggestions.  A CELL tower REIT sounds good and I have a limit order in on AMT.  I was hopeful the election would bring a market dip and glad I waiting almost a month to employ my first months cash.  I didn't want to wreck the mood being down 10% on everything days after purchase.  Many tickers are on sale so I think I will probably end up with a few too many.  I'll sort out the extras after more research and maybe make lunch money on the ones I cull.  I'll just have to feed them monthly after this and try to avoid market timing. I can get comfortable with that after I determine I like what I bought for at least the mid term.

Started a position in MA. AMT order got filled as well. I have more research to do before I add anymore. I'm trusting you man! Just kidding, it's only one share for now. I need to look into debt etc. The market is chaotic and I feel the need to get at least a little cash deployed on every down day.

Here's the first end of month report. Started buying OCT 14th so I only had two weeks to lose money. Smile I started a spreadsheet but may ask to use one of Eric's. I'm not trying to make this complicated but would like to track it. I do want to have some rules, but they are a little loose until I refine them. I am going to stick with $2500 new money every month. I spent $3096.29 in OCT and that was after I kicked CVS out of the port. Down $51.35 total. The port can borrow up to $2500. I want the flexibility to buy when the market dips, and get it back to right when the market runs and I shouldn't be forcing purchases. Mostly no market timing though. Once the port is full I'll add to something. Definitely adding some tech in November and that money is available Monday. Probably 12-15 stock goal in the near term. If I decide a stock isn't a legit 5% revenue grower for minimum three years it will be evicted. I have limit orders in on GOOGL and MSFT. We'll see, I don't intend to chase high fliers, and I'll have to fight the urge to average losers down a rat hole. Formatting is bad so I'm just listing stocks and total shares. . First number is shares. Last is gain/loss. I put too much effort into trying to catch bottoms for just a couple shares. Smile In the future I'll just enter a few limit orders early in the month and adjust it a few times throughout the month if they don't fill.


APD AIR PRODUCTS 2 -10.02
AMT AMERICAN TOWER 1 -0.35
AVGO BROADCOM 1 -10.37
CAT CATERPILLAR 2 -6.44
LLY ELI LILLY 3 -0.12
MA MASTER CARD 2 -0.72
UNP UNION PACIFIC 3 -21.43
VSTO VISTA OUTDOORS 5 -1.90

COST 3096.29 RETURN -51.35

The $2500/mo is harvested from my option selling scam. In two years I'll have $60K of my own money in this port. That should pay for my new retirement truck and then some. With any luck I'll make the market hit that goal sooner.

Just some info so I can update at EOM. A few new buys.

BABA- 3 shares, new position
VSTO- 10 shares, add
APD- 2 shares, added
DG- 2 shares, new position
SOXX ETF- 1 share, new position

SOXX will likely be temporary but at least it's tech and I think the semis will have a decent 2021. I'd rather buy NVDA or ADBE but I just can't pay the current prices. Until the market corrects I am going to try to limit myself to 1-2 new stocks per month, and add new sectors. Covid will beat something down eventually.
