Summary of Recent Buys - Week of August 15, 2016

My weekly summary of buys from around the blogging community.

I currently follow over 77 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 saw a lot more sells than I was anticipating but also some nice buys. FLO and TGT topped the list this week for buys and TGT takes over as the top trending stock this week.

In another note, I got a new logo! Fiverr.com is a pretty cool place. I am sure its not the most unique looking design, but for $5, its fun to put an original icon on my website. Thanks for reading as always!

  2. Thanks for including me in the post! I think this is my first time =D. Also cool to see many of us buying the same companies!


    1. I do hope youre kidding about this being your first time!! :)

      Ya, us great minds think alike at times. I think overall its great, as long as we continue to do our individual research before blindly pulling the trigger!

      Thanks for the comment!

  3. I added some yesterday if you want to include them for next week.

    For some reason when I use the word press logon it says my openid can't be verified. No Idea why that is.

    1. Hi Doug, No worries. Site added to my watch list for buys!

  4. No buys this week for me :(

    Btw, nice logo.

    1. Thanks D4S, its simple yet somewhat interesting. I am happy with it for now.
