It's time to put AG back on my watch list.  Thanks for the reminder on ADM.

NP

ADM is one of those really boring like watching paint dry stocks! I wrestle with it at times and then I'm like ok why not...been waiting for it to drop under 39 for a while!
I live in corn country near a couple of ADM plants. AG is going to be a rough ride for awhile.  Should have some time to build a position.  The dividend current yield looks very good here.  And I can use a little more boring in my portfolio.

Get quality stuff at a value that you are happy with. You will never buy in at the absolute bottom. People who bought at the pre-2008 peak were in pretty good shape a decade after the worst recession since 1929. Aristocrats with solid balance sheets are likely to keep increasing their dividends year-on-year. The sky isn't falling, but a sale might be in the works.

They are definitely good for long-term investing.  Invest on the way down and back up.  You have to put yourself in a position to continue adding more shares though.  You'll catch some at and very near the bottom which is good enough.  

What's going on now is not recessionary though.  It's a bit of a circus and an intra-day roller coaster ride like I haven't seen lately.  Most of my port is not supposed to oscillate 10% in a week or so, but some of it does..  That was never my plan lol.

The pronounced 3mo/10yr yield-curve inversion is typically pre-recessionary. If past performance of that indicator is any measure, I suspect we will be in a recession by 2Q 2020.  Market typically begins its drop before the recession is formally declared. 

There's always a bear market somewhere, though. Right now it appears to be tobacco stocks and healthcare stocks with exposure to the opioid/medicare for all headlines. My buy list just gets bigger during recessions.

The best part about a recession is a few months in it gets hard to make a bad pick if you have any idea what a blue chip is.  We aren't anywhere near there yet.

Bought OXY. I know everyone hates it but with a 6.15% yield now I don't mind jumping in here and waiting it out. They did raise the dividend last month to .79

Also took a new position in SCHW.

I bought a small basket of gold and silver stocks this morning. I see 2000 for gold sometime this year and with a possible recession n the way and more rate cuts this sector should do well.

Also bought some PFE, SCHW and ABBV

Nice adds today Guru. I like those names as well. I bought ABBV the other day. Half position. Will add more if it should reach $60 or so. PFE at these levels I think you will do well over time. Its a slow mover.

Which gold stocks did you purchase? You will do well in that sector.
