Hindsight is 20/20 so Hey Great Behind?

     This is a year to look behind us.  Buns intended; oops I mean pun, pun intended..  Our portfolio is performing tremendously as a matter of fact I am just waiting for the year to close and we are all going to gloat over how much money we made verses taking advice from the average investment counselor.
     I created this blog to teach the basics of Wall Street, the fact that the investments I chose to look at also made a profit is just a bonus.  But you can learn to find these investments on your own without spending a lot of time if you are not interested in Wall Street.  Remember this is also about your 401K at your workplace if that is the only Wall Street investing you ever do that's ok too!
     Let's look back on this year.  I became homeless, yes you heard me right homeless, living on the streets of Los Angeles.  Best thing that ever happened to me in my life!  You are going to say I'm crazy....


     Wait don't interrupt in the middle of my article Joe reader, let me finish my point.  Ok now I am sidetracked but go back if you are new to the sight start with the first articles where I explain myself and the basics of investing, in 2020 we are going to be doing more of that now that I have more time to write.  The most powerful articles are the "Trumpty Dumpty Poem" because it has been plagiarized everywhere in different versions.  The "Proof is in the Pudding Article" showing the portfolio performing at 111% and the article special to me, how I became homeless.  This being homeless is evolving for me to look at a career in non-profit service to the homeless but I will still continue this blog.  Wall Street isn't as complicated as you think but it does effect your everyday life.
      So as we approach our second year end we are going to take out the profit of our initial investment and in a sense take our money back.  Going forward we will grow the mock portfolio with only funds we earned from Wall Street in the last 2 years!
     As we look back on this decade it has been truly a prosperous one for investing and with the skills you will learn from this blog will last you a lifetime.  Eventually the market will turn from this Bull market (going up) to the Bear market (going down) when we enter the Bear Market our tactics for making a profit will severally shift.

I thank you all for allowing me to take you on this journey.

Just Another Boring Bank Stock? ~ Not Oregon Bancorp

  I just happened too be browsing around looking for something; I can't remember what when I saw this little gem of  stock Oregon Bancorp (ORBN) now as we speak for $33.00 a share.  So I want to add it to our mock portfolio. It has so many things going for it which makes it a perfect little add.  First off it is a banking stock which we don't have.  Yes there is T.Rowe Price which is more of a brokerage financial institution, while Oregon Bancorp is a bank.  Selling at $33.00 a share it is easily affordable for you, me and the average investor to buy.  Oregon Bancorp is listed on the Over the Counter Pink Sheets.  In the old days on the New York stock exchange these shares did not sell all that often and were listed on actual pink sheets of paper that's why they are still called "Pink Sheets"    Oregon Bancorp just had a blowout quarter with their financials it seems the company is really doing things right.  I looked over several charts by them first looking at
