Recent Buy, Sept. 2014 and Football Talk

Investor Gremlin here to talk about my recent buy.  I added 12 shares of JNJ at $105 + commission to my Roth account.  I've been working on this buy for a while and it was nice to finally execute it so I am able to add another consistent dividend grower to my Roth account.

This purchase will be added to my Portfolio Page at the start of the month, which is when it will be updated (part of that is due to Loyal3 purchases that happen slowly).

I've also decided that in my future 'recent buy' posts I will not be diving too deep into a company's numbers.  I know most people are smart enough to know about what the big ones are worth, and if not they can look it up. 

Going forward I will likely be putting any extra free cash beyond what I take out of every paycheck and put it towards my taxable account.  This is due to the fact that it has a head start on cash on the Roth.  I might also be able to move some 401K rollover money into my Roth early next year, which will help significantly. Either way, I hope to make my next big buys early next year.  Right now my funds are limited due to my upcoming wedding.  I plan on only doing it once, so might as well do it right.   I am still buying up stuff on Loyal3, that isn't going to stop any time soon.

And now for some great news, football:
As a fan of the Eagles, it has been a great start.  Princess Gremlin/Eli over there to the left reflects how I feel about the rest of the NFC East.

3-0 has required a little bit of luck, but its that zero at the end that counts.  Meanwhile, if my fantasy teams could pick up their slack that'd really seal the deal.

Sorry About the Delay

My god, I've been all over the place, its been like a theater full of Gremlins in my life.  Which, I guess there could be worse things in life.

Anyways, its almost fall on the calender, but it is definitely so in my heart.  Why?  Two reasons, football and football.

For those thinking I only mean football, that is mostly true because I also mean soccer.  In the last few weeks the NFL and Barclay's Premier League (BPL - British Soccer) have started back up.  It may come as a shock that those are 2 of my favorite sports to watch because of how much fans of one usually hate the other, but its what I like.  That and hockey, which my team is looking absolutely mediocre this year.  I digress, sports are awesome to watch and play.  Better than anything else on TV with the exception of Game of Thrones and Jeopardy of course.

So it is good times, and speaking of which I will be updating my portfolio page.  It is just going to be a simple set of what I have, nothing too grand I think.  I will be showing recent buys soon, once they start happening and those stocks listed as Loyal3 will just be moving upwards in a mostly steady fashion.
