Summary of Recent Buys - Week of June 13, 2016

My weekly summary of buys from around the blogging community.

I currently follow 75 blogs to get this data!!!

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 week TGT once again tops the list with an impressive number of buys over the past few weeks. It has skyrocketed to the top of the trending table below and is definitely "Hot". The S&P has been moving mostly sideways the past few weeks as it is summer time and slower, but also uncertainty with the presidential race in the USA and the pending "Brexit" vote later this week. A couple of new names this week like DEO and FLO popped up on the trending table.

  1. Thanks once again for adding my small purchases to the summary. Awesome!

    1. You bet! Big or small, its important to see where people are putting there money! Thanks for the comment.

  2. Thanks for the roundup, looks like a lot of bloggers still taking advantage of that Target selloff.

    1. Hi Captain! Yes indeed... Considering it was at $80 in May, there is a nice discount there still. Thanks for commenting!

  3. I'm not surprised to see TGT at the top of the list. I didn't think I'd see BNS second on the list. It's a great stock, but the price has been going up. Still a value though.

    1. Hi IH, Yes BNS has been doing well very recently, but it still is down. I have considered it many times. It always seems to pop up every few weeks in the buys. Thanks for commenting!
