This week there was a total of 22 buys from 17 different bloggers. A relatively light week compared with last week, but some very popular names on this list, as to be expected.
CVX was the hot stock this week with 4 bloggers posting buys. In the past 3 months, this and other oil stocks, have been on a steady decline. This isn't a completely new situation so investors are probably banking on the fact that these stocks will recover.
MMM, IBM, and EMR were close behind with 3 buys. All 3 are off their recent highs which is enticing prospective buyers.
Here is the summary of stocks and how many buys this week:
For the Sector information, I use FinViz.com when possible as it is easy to find a consistent sector list. Here are the Sector codes I use in the chart (# is the number of each stock purchased in that sector):
The hot sectors this week were Basic Materials and Financials. Same story last week as well as these sectors continue to present value. Overall though it was a nice spread throughout the sectors.
And the Pie Chart showing the popular sectors:

Which of these stocks are you looking to buy next week? Any surprises in this list?
I cross referenced my data with A Frugal Family's Journey's page about Collection of Recent Buys. They provide a link to the individual posts as well as the amount invested. I stuck with shares purchased this week but I may start to include the amount invested in future posts.
