October 9th: Ed’s Daily Portfolio Summary   5 comments

At one point today, my only stocks in the green were Smith & Wesson (SWHC) and Microsoft (MSFT). There’s the end of the world needs right there: guns and operating systems. Didn’t the Bible saying something about “geeks inheriting the Earth”?

Seriously, on to my portfolio:

GNW: 0.08 to $12.70 ( 0.63% , 35.54% overall)– bought at $9.37
IAU: -0.14 to $12.67 ( -1.09% , -3.21% overall)– bought at $13.09
MSFT: 0.06 to $33.07 ( 0.18% , -1.14% overall)– bought at $33.45
NDZ: -0.01 to $8.40 ( -0.12% , -2.89% overall)– bought at $8.65
NNVC: 0.05 to $5.00 ( 1.01% , 96.85% overall)– bought at $2.54
PVCT: -0.05 to $0.90 ( -5.26% , -13.46% overall)– bought at $1.04
SWHC: 0.17 to $10.51 ( 1.64% , -0.85% overall)– bought at $10.60
SYMC: -0.07 to $24.67 ( -0.28% , -0.20% overall)– bought at $24.72

  1. Out of topic, but I thought some may find this an interesting read. Methinks Mike&Kathie would love it. (Chuckling here, as SeaTurtleLady, would add.)

    For those who haven’t spent much time with the details of Obamacare, the ACA (Affordable Care Act), the devil features prominently in them. With all due deference to the vulgarity of the metaphor, its basic premise is that by lowering the cost of a yacht (health care) from $100,000 to $50,000 through subsidies the yacht will become more affordable. Poor people are given the choice of buying the yacht at a subsidized price—subsidies for health insurance premiums, deductibles and co-pays that many still can’t afford. …The subsidized yacht may be cheaper than the yacht without subsidies but it still isn’t affordable.

    The ACA is a corporate-state creation designed to insure only that the insurance-medical establishment remains at the center of America’s health care denial industry.

  2. Ed why do I not see TC-PT?

  3. Ed – I do not understand your investment in PVCT. This is a company burning through two to four million per quarter and they only have four million in the bank with no other assets worthy of mention. In two quarters they are out of dough, if not sooner.

    • Marshall,
      It’s a small investment in a penny stock with an innovative, and promising, idea, which has done well in clinical testing. When I checked it earlier this month, it was 0.69% of both my portfolios (401k and IRA). Heck, I’ve lost more than that in this latest correction!
