The 1,000 Shares Goal for Southwall Technologies
My brain is telling me I am a complete moron for having this goal...
Southwall Technologies (SWTX)
Goal: 1,000 Shares
Current Holdings: 400 Shares.
I suppose when I reach my goal of 1,000 shares I'll stop and cool off for a day and then foolishly move my goal post to 10,000 shares.... what the heck... move it after that to 100,000 shares.
But... I'm not a complete idiot.
I've been buying up dips on my other stocks to help keep a healthy diversified portfolio afloat in this horrible economy.
(DPS) Dr.Pepper Snapple Group posts an excellent earnings report and the stock goes no where after the first day?
(AMAT) Keeps looking to expand and keeps landing lucrative Solar contracts and the stock goes no where?
(FEED) Expanding on target to their original goal and the stock goes no where?
(TRA) Stock's going up but still significantly underneath its 52 week high?
(SID) Peaked... fine.... I got a nice profit riding on this with my remaining shares. I sold half my position when it was at $50.
So... what to do about a company you are 99% confident perhaps 100% confident will have several excellent earnings reports this year?
In terms of Southwall Technologies.... My plan is to buy 100 shares at a time until I reach 1,000.
Once I am at 1,000 shares.... I'll move to bring my other positions up. Ultimately, 1,000 shares is chump change in comparison to how much money I poured into other companies anyhow.
Being TOP HEAVY in a stock should be about how much money percentage wise you are invested in a company.... (NOT) how many shares you have.
