August 5th was a bad day for stock holders. With the stock market dropping substantially because of the ongoing trade war with china. I thought to myself, what better time to show off my current stock holdings then the day after a huge market plummet. I used this drop as a chance to strengthen my portfolio. Buying in when the market dips is one of the easiest ways to make a quick penny. Over the past day I doubled down on Microsoft, Ford, Bank of America, and even decided to buy twenty shares of Sandstorm Gold. After looking over what stocks lost the most yesterday I noticed that people telling you to buy in on gold when you expect a market drop were not kidding! All gold related stocks managed to gain near 10% in value. While the vast majority of SPF500 stocks lost anywhere from 1-5%. Now that we got the Investing News out of the way lets jump right into my portfolio.
Lets start strong with one of my favorite stocks, Microsoft. I own five shares valued at 667.98 or 131.28 per share.
Four shares of Sprint valued at 26.66 or 7.14 a share.
Three shares of Bank of America valued at 83.54 or 28.20 a share.
