Picked up a little ASML and Lam Research today.  Waiting for Applied Materials to drop some more before buying.

We can still have 30-50 % market correction from here and still expensive.

I know I paint a grim picture. But it will need to come to that and much more rate hikes than the .50 Fed funds rate to even just merely slow down inflation. To kill inflation, it might be an impossible tasks, given where we are.

Do you think the consumer will continue to spend? Otherwise what is your reasoning for buying AXP?

IMO consumer sentiments are bad, but they will continue to spend and pay more at retail for goods and services due to inflation.  I plan to use limit orders to average down on AXP with small purchases ($500-1000) per step.

This is not to say that AXP is a guaranteed "safe bet".  They face risks beyond their control including military conflict, pandemic resurgence, and all kinds of disruptions that may impact consumer spending habits & delinquency rates.  For example, as consumers are forced to pay more for food, fuel, cars, etc., they're more inclined to trade in used items to save money.  I recently sold an used Nuna infant car seat for cash, a transaction that doesn't benefit card companies or retail stores.

I think this will hold for the split…

Something seems to be amiss with google. Last earnings they announced that 20 for one stock split and it made an all time high only to trade down to the 2500 area. It's tried to rally a couple times only to end up around the 2500ish area again and today it decisively broke that area and not on low volume either.

It doesn't seem to be expensive, so not really sure what is up. Bought some puts. If it attempts to rally back to 2500 I'm buying more.

You got some near term support at 2450 but it broke that. if it closes below that then 2250 in the cards.  I would enter around there if it holds. 

$2250.00



$2250.00…Start nibbling…

My small limit orders set at 52-week low price for couple stocks executed.  Bought GOOG at $100.  Next step $80.

Averaging down on GOOG, AXP, JPM, SSO, plus monthly purchase BRK-B.

Eyeing SPH and thinking about adding more shares at under $15.

No, I average down (buy and hold) on stocks with exception to BRK-B fund, which I purchase monthly.

I also purchase small amount of gold/silver annually.  Over the years they all add up.

Sold all the puts I bought yesterday lots of stocks weren't really dropping and vix was going up so my premiums were rising.

Could go lower or we could get some kind of relief rally. Never went broke taking a profit.
