What Did You Buy Today?
Those articles will not get any readers and no "wow" factor if there are no big names that regular folks recognize.
It's not so much about the authors being clueless, it's more about them focusing more on getting readers (=money) rather than being right. This is the problem with a lot of media nowadays, it's not about the quality, it's about getting as many views as possible.

Here are the ones I'd be most worried about. Many on that list of 60 are ridiculous. Do they really think PEP, KO and HSY are going to cut dividends?
That was the stupidest thing I've read lately.  The best UTEs are on the list too.  Some rookie is going to sell their shares today after reading that foolishness.  They did it for shock value and it's a BS tactic. It genuinely ticked me off.

So you bought 2-3 shares each. Yeah you joined the party  Big Grin
LOL, going slow is working for me.  If I have to turn 20 trades a day I'll do it.  Seriously though, I'll make 50 shares a three trade thing if it makes sense.  My 100 share purchases weren't working out too often.  I'm always early whether buying or selling.  

I can't believe you missed my post quote of yours yesterday evening.  I'm deeply disappointed lol.
Oh I saw it. I just laughed and moved on like I did with that article that came out about dividend cuts lol  Big Grin

Be a little careful with that Buffet following thing.  He bought about $20 ago when I bought my first shares.  The story has changed more than a little.  The dividend is likely history for now. DAL is the best managed airline in the industry and that will not save us for now.  If you are cool with waiting over a year for a dividend you're good. I'll be pleasantly surprised if I see another Div in 2020.
Nibbled some OLN and TGT. Sold the last of my AMZN. It's been a good ride but the valuation doesn't match the economy anymore. I'll be back if it corrects. More UTE shares for now.

Yeah I'm not too excited on DAL. Once they cut the dividend I took it off my list. I just see slow travel for the next year or tow. Passengers are going to be strapped for vacation money and afraid to fly now. Just because they give you the ok doesn't mean the corona virus wont come back at any time. It only takes 1 and it spreads again. That what I'm afraid of going forward. I see social distancing happening for a long time. 

I pulled a Fenders and Guru just now lol. Bought 5-10 shares each of MCD, PYPL, and SBUX for my 6 year olds account. 

These are just names I add to for his college fund lol

OLN is a interesting name. Can they still pay out that 7% dividend? Rating was just lowered to BB Negative. Just trading it? Trying to squeak out a $1 or $2?

Or did you go mo 5 years long  Big Grin

It's a good method.  Provides hours of entertainment almost everyday and you can't get hurt much.  I know it must sound ridiculous but for weeks  I sell 5 or 20 shares of a core position, buy it back 10% cheaper.  Over and over it works in a volatile market.  If I have to hundred dollar my way back to prosperity that's what I'll do lol.  If a stock runs and a my core positition is short a few shares it will be OK.  Before this I was a 100 share guy for the past 500 trades.  Nobody can time this mess and it just causes unnecessary stress trying to decide when to jump in or out.  My 45 stock port is handy now.  There is something ready to buy or sell most everyday.
