  1. Thanks again for pulling this together. Great to have some company with that ADM buy. I just wanted to point out that my transaction with COP was actually a sale...

    1. Thanks for the support DL! Sorry about the mistake on COP but thanks for the correction! Great buy on ADM!

  2. Wow Dividend Hustler and Investment Hunting are really putting some serious money to work this month. Wish I could keep up!

    1. I hear ya there. We are actually in the process of moving to a new house so time and money are tight. Some big buys last week though! Thanks for commenting!

  3. Financials were certainly popular this past week. I think with the FEDs recent decision to raise rates, banks should now find it a bit easier to generate profits. As rates grow in the coming years, banks will benefit from the growth. Buying bank stocks now should prove to be a great move in the coming years. AFFJ

    1. Hi AFFJ! Good points. I agree with your logic. Thanks for the comment! Merry Christmas!

  4. Thanks for putting this list together. Lot's of good information here.

    1. Thanks Investment Hunting! Glad I could provide some info. Thanks for stopping by to comment!
