November 1st, 2014 Stocksnowball.com Portfolio Review! New Purchases NAO and RDS.B

I can say with some confidence that if you are not investing in "stocks" which represent companies and their earnings you are feeling some pain. Let us review. Stocks have bounced back, good companies are increasing earnings and many companies are increasing revenue and profits. Oil is down which hurts oil stocks but helps other parts of the economy. Looking at production numbers I think oil is down more from supply then a weak economy. Commodities down, silver and gold are getting crushed, the metal and stocks!

So why did I invest in NAO and RDS.B knowing they have a connection to oil? With NAO it has a strong high dividend, I think it is safe. A dip in the share price can be made up with the dividend over time and when oil does rise I think NAO will benefit from that but NAO is more into services in the oil business. RDS.B is more of a restructuring story and the oil price doesn't hurt the company as much. The dividend is high and it was a great time to DCA the position. The power of dollar cost averaging! I made the initial purchase of RDS.B at $86.80 and recently bought at $69.34 to average out at $77.12. See my Stocktwits account for when I post purchases and sells live. The way to let DCA work for you is to be patient with a position you like and then buy after a  bigger fall of 10 to 20 percent. Some people buy after a small drop and don't have enough bullets to take advantage of the correction. You must understand your company! RDS.B is an oil stock and we know oil is a volatile market. The reason I don't use stop losses is I understand the swings in price and am a long term shareholder. I prefer to DCA and trade around a core position. You must understand your company and how it moves to the market conditions. 

My next YouTube video and blog entry will be one of the "themes" I invest in.
