EVOA- Lution!!! Time to add a Transportation Stock



Image result for evolution

So diversification of a portfolio is a very important aspect of investing. As you can see if you read previous articles, we have slowly added stocks to our portfolio to diversify.  We haven't really removed to many names due to the fact the ones I have chosen have performed so well; but it is time to remove IQ trading at $15.69 as of the close of the market today 10/8/2019 so since we own 2 shares we cash out at $31.38 a loss.  But we are going to buy 2 shares of (EVOA) EVO Transportation & Energy Services for $2.70 (we purchase 2 shares to keep in line with the model mock portfolio of each having 2 shares).

With that our mock portfolio has evolved!

Here is the reason I like EVO they are trying to acquire distribution routes and go after the USPS shipping business on a national scale they have recently acquired Ritter Companies giving them a presence in the North Eastern United States and previously acquired Thunder Ridge Transport which gives them a strong hold in 9 Midwestern states.  While EVO still has to bid for the USPS contracts which in my opinion they have positioned themselves to acquire should cause a substantial rise in their over all share price.  The stock has risen sharply this year by comparison to the iShares Transportation Average ETF's (IYT) drop of 7.8% and the S&P 500 Index’s (SPY) rise of 1.87%

They have also appointed a  new CEO Thomas J Abood as of 9/24/2019 and new CFO Eugene Putnam back on 7/17/2019 giving the company a strong and solid upper management foundation Abood has served as the Board Chairman since October of last year.

So subtract $5.40 to purchase EVOA from the proceeds of IQ $31.38 and leave the $25.98 in the account with the dividends that are adding up.

Portfolio Check In Lets See How We Are Doing?

 Well I apologize, it has been awhile since I have written an article and checked in with the portfolio but I have been watching our stocks and must say we have been doing quite well!  The overall portfolio has increased by 25%.  Lets do a run down of where we were at last time on May 10, 2020 and the two stocks we added to the portfolio since then AYRO on 6/17/2020 and ORBN on 8/8/2020.

Liars and Buyer's and Bear's oh My!!!!!!!!! The Dow drops another 1000 points!

  VS.    If you have read my previous articles over the last couple of days I said I would be more worried if the DJIA corrected 2600 points in one day (10%)  well as of today that leaves us around 2,100 points off last week Wednesdays open.  I am still not in a panic and here is why: Bulls vs. Bears I'm looking at you right now stop talking to your dog and trying to make his head tilt to the side so you can do the Scooby Doo voice and say "Huh?" What are they? Why do people on Wall Street keep referring too all these Bull markets, all these Bear Markets?  Why do people on Wall Street go South most of the time, North every so often but never East and West? These are terms that Wall Street users identify certain periods of time.  A "Bull" market is one that is charging upward (like a Bull lifting its horns upwards no end in site) while a "Bear" market means things are on the way down (like a bear striking with its claws downward)
