Every journey begins with the first step. Not a bad choice, alexg.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. That is a very good first step.

Bought 6 shares of IBM @ 162.47. This is basically my October savings and my November purchase.

Thumbs Up 
Congratulations on your first purchase! The first purchase of my journey was earlier this year and it was also Exxon. They have a very disciplined management and I'm sure we will do fine over time.

Best of luck!

I am long IBM as well and am considering adding here too. I have a full position, but you don't get many chances to own companies like IBM at a 10 PE.

Finally updated my portfolio page. I use M* to track my portfolio (free version) so I copied the data over instead of using an image.

I have some suggestions for your 'Portfolio Total' line.

In the 'Dividend Yield %' column, compute the current yield of your portfolio. The number you show seems strange. It is not the total dividend $s as I compute them: (981.87 x .0249) + (1135.24 x .028) = 24.45 + 31.79 = 56.24. The current yield is 56.24 / (986.40 + 1160.52) = 2.62%.

In the 'P/E (ttm)' column, compute the capitalization weighted average P/E. This is the P/E of your portfolio. The number you show is the arithmetic average, which is not the same as cap weighted and so not the true P/E of your portfolio. The arithmetic average will only match the cap weighted average if you have exactly the same market value in each position.

You can add some other interesting stuff from your M* portfolio, such as 3 year beta and 3 year standard deviation. You can compute the cap weighted values for your entire portfolio.

You can do all of this if you have Excel. Export an Excel spreadsheet from your portfolio view and then add columns to perform the computations as needed. I do all of this stuff, and having M* is a big help. I would never compute beta and standard deviation on my own.
