lucas03, Best of luck with CVS. What % of portfolio do you consider a full position?

I started building a position in CVS 1.4 years ago on weakness.  Initial entry at $74.99 on 11/9/16.  Have profitably and aggressively traded it while building a position over time.  Current portfolio % is .74% with a 3% target for a full position.  Trading income to date is about 10x greater than the dividend income.  Last two purchases were $73.95 on 2/6/18 and $61.11 on 3/26/18.  Next buy target is < $55 and sell target for last partial position is $69/share.

Thanks, I don't have a specific % as full position, I just started buying dividend growth stocks 2 years ago. I do not have maximum stock count limit as of now as well and do not pay too much attention to portfolio diversification. I'll probably start soon, but as of now,
just buying stocks I like. My purchase fee is 0.5$ which allows me to do more purchases.

CVS is 5,7% of my porfolio now, that is quite high and that is why I said I might consider it as a full position from now on Smile GL with your buys too!
Added to D and CVX this morning. Sold out of MRK to cover the proceeds. Been holding that one for 8 years and has done nothing lol
No one bought in the last week? I guess everyone is tapped out lol
Surprised no one else has been.  I have some limit orders but just missed on a few.  Need a few more down days and I'll post.
Added to my OAK position
I'll be making a purchase in my wife's ROTH for my final ROTH contribution before the deadline next week. Would like for tomorrow and next week to be down days.
I initiated positions in SPY, IWM, QQQ and DIA today. All fully DRIP and on set it + forget it mode "forever".

I love a lot of companies but many are perpetually out of my buy-criteria-zone. Stuff like GS, JPM, V, DIS, NVDA ...

And having exposure to stuff like AMZN, FB, GOOGL, NFLX, ADBE, BRK.B and many, many others is something I am personally OK with. Lots of overlap but I've been thinking about this for a long time and finally put one foot in front of the other.
