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.

What is the Trumpty Dumpty Poem? Question from Readers Richard & Shannon

Richard & Shannon of Albuquerque, NM I am glad you asked that question.  I can see that the over 1,000 times I have posted this to social media it has seemed to take of and obviously I am able to borrow this graffic from someone who copied my poem.  I have seen variations of it but I can assure you mine is the original it dates dack to around March of 2017.

I did however not coin the phrase Trumpty Dumpty this was done by another Albuquerque resident that called into my friend Radio Talk Show host Norman Goldman (we met through our mutual friend Ed Schultz who just recently passed R.I.P.) you can listen to his show on AM 1350 in Albuquerque from 4-7pm Mountain (for the rest of the country check his website).  I wish I remembered the ladies name.  I first posted the peom on my Facebook page the day after the lady stated it on the show so if anyone claims copyright I can prove them wrong I wrote this enjoy"

Homeless and Living with Covid 19 ~ My Personal Story

So I was diagnosed with Corona Virus on May 25th, 2020 at Martin Luther King Hospital in South Central Los Angeles. I arrived at the emergency room at 8:00am in the morning, after being triaged they suspected myself and two other gentlemen from the sober living recovery home where I was staying did indeed have the virus. So while we waited for the results which would take two hours I was scared my worst nightmare would come true I would have it, be homeless again and tossed out into the street.
     The two hours was an excruciating long time I was petrified, scared and facing the overall fact this may be it I might die. Then I remembered I have been through this before.  The first time I went in for my AIDS test back in 1986 after having been all over Europe and with many a man, I was back in my hometown in Waukesha Wisconsin and was the first ever patient at Waukesha Memorial Hospital to have the AIDS test administered. The girl in the laboratory was my friend from high school…

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


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)  this is also considere…
