My weekly summary of buys from around the blogging community for the week of December 6, 2015. If you have made purchases this week and do not see them on this list, please let me know and I will add you to my list of sites I monitor for buy posts. 

This weeks totals

I have charted the weekly S&P % Return vs Amount of Money invested in the market for that week. The last few weeks have been relatively steady as the market has had some ups and downs but overall, relatively flat.

Top Purchased Stocks this week:

  1. WMT -3 Buys
  2. ADM - 2 Buys

A light week overall in trading. Santa rally seems like it might be thwarted by the energy sector as well as the threat of a rate hike.

Here is the summary of stocks, amount invested, and which blogger posted the buy with a link to the post:

  1. Hello I Want,
    Always interesting to compare notes with other investors. I seem to recall reading about a lot of sales last week - mostly of KMI. That information would make for a more complete analysis.

    1. Hi MG,

      A couple people have suggested listing sells as well. I guess it may be time to start reporting that eh? Thanks for the feedback!

  2. I like this list. It's always good to see what others are doing in this space. I also picked up WMT, ADM, CMI, and MGA last week. Blog post are coming soon :-)

    1. Hi IH, thanks for commenting. I agree. I thought ADM would be way up this week based on all the posts I'm seeing but I guess not. Interesting to see the numbers anyway. Take care!

  3. Adam,

    I had a new buy for next weeks report. Keep up the good work, I enjoy and look forward to the weekly updates you publish:) http://dgi.wikidot.com/blog:99

    1. Hi Ken, I see it there... unfortunately I cant seem to find an RSS or Feed for your blog posts, so I have to manually check. If you have one, send me a link please! Nice buy, BTW, I think CMI looks strong here. Thanks for the comment!

    2. The rss feed is near the bottom of the home page. Here is the RSS link


  4. Great to all the activity and the DGI community still active this time of the year. Wish we had the capital to add to the portfolio but the belt is usually tightened this time of year with taxes and Christmas.

    Thanks for your continued commitment to put this together. The entire community, including myself, appreciate your efforts! Also, thanks for the continued mentions!!

    Hope you have a great weekend. AFFJ

    1. Thanks AFFJ! Glad I could contribute something to the community. It really is the least I can do. It will be interesting to see these next two reports to see what the spending is like in the community. Probably light! Thanks for stopping by!
