Just bought 50 Uber @37.47. It's a trade not an investment. I just think that the stock's beating though deserved is probably over.

Sold Uber @40.86. Not bad for 1 day in the market.

Anyone loading up on WBA or CVS yet? Yields are near historic highs.

I’m really tempted to sell my P&G stock. I still think it’s an excellent company, but it’s priced handsomely

P&G has come up nicely, yes. If the yield drops to 2.5, it's out the door!

Ended up buying some P&G, I just think there's a lot of stuff to like. Great brands in a time when I believe people tend to underestimate the power of consumer brands, great cash generation, recently re-focused brand portfolio, good dividend (even if the payout ratio seems too high to me), lowest price in 5 years.

I'll take that in this environment.
Turns out I was particularly lucky and almost caught the very bottom.
Sold them all now for $107.45
I really don't like to sell*, but I made 35.5% net of taxes (26% on capital gain) in a little more than a year, and I wanted to up a bit my cash allocation that was sitting at 12.5%.
Normally I like it to be just under 10%, but in this environment I planned to up it to around 15%.
Keep in mind I have no bonds as, here in Europe, cash yields 0.3% in a CD, while German 10y bonds yield -0.1% (yes that's minus zero point one percent).

*looking back, this is my first "sell" trade in about a year, when I sold some Royal Dutch at 31 euros. My ratio of buy/sell is about 30 to 1 not including reinvested dividends
