A few months ago I ran a short series of articles based on investing $20K. I ran the series for about a week and then dropped it. Today I want to do a brief article showing where those stocks are now.
1) INTC - 405 shares - $8444.25 purchased 12/11/6 at $20.84 per share. Current price $19.09. 3 month high - $22.30.
2) DELL - 416 shares - $10978.24 purchased 12/19/6 at $26.39 per share Current price $23.39. 3 month high - $27.26.
3) YHOO - 38 shares - $1042.34 purchased 12/5/6 at $27.43 per share Current price $31.34. 3 month high - $32.11
4) IQWB - 58 shares - $9.28 purchased 12/11/6 at $0.16 per share Current price $0.08
Final value: $18,657.25.
I guess I'm no great stock picker! Or am I?
The one stock I purchased with real money over this time span is AT&T stock which is currently trading at $39.17. When I began this experiment it was trading in the $32 range.
When I purchased my AT&T stock it was several years ago when it was trading in the $19 range. Yes, AT&T stock has done wonders for me!
