August Watchlist Update
Below is an update on my watchlist for August in preparation of my Birthday Buys in January! I am targeting to add 1 to 2 positions in each portfolio. Some of the great July Ideas recommendations have made their way onto my watchlist 👀
$COST - I have a number of other very strong alternatives that I would add ahead of Costco, so I removed it from my watchlist.
$F - Potentially breaking one of my rules by choosing not to invest in auto manufacturers. This was a July Ideas rec, and ranks as a 5/6 to tie $DMLP as an Industrials option.
$WM - Dropped from a 5/6 to a 4.5/6 over the course of July. Added $AY, which has a higher ranking at 5/6.
$ALL - Dropped from a 5/6 to 4.5/6 over the course of July. Still have $OZK as strongest potential Financials picks ranking at 5.5/6.
$AFL - $OZK increased from a 5/6 to a 5.5/6, which is now my strongest potential financials play. $AFL has therefore been removed.
$RICK - July Ideas rec. Ranking at a 5/6 and strong Sin Stock option.
$AY - July Ideas rec. Ranking 5/6 as a Utilities option.
My predicted picks in July were $PENN in my Taxable account and $AMGN in my Roth IRA. Now in August, my picks have changed to $CAT in my Taxable and $OZK in my Roth IRA.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on my picks and thought process!
