At the end of August 2014, my portfolio stood at $70,614.62 across all my accounts combined. Comparing to my portfolio balance of $65,135.23 at the end of July, this represents an increase of $5,479.39 for the month of August which represents a 8.41% increase for the month.
I had 5 stocks mentioned in my August watch list, but managed to purchase just 2 stocks. KO, PEP and V have gone up lately and I will be looking for some dips to initiate positions in those stocks.
Here is a graph showing the growth of my portfolio since 2009. As always, it is satisfying to see the graphs going higher each month/year. It reinforces the fact that I am making progress towards my goals.
Disclosure: Long CLX, GSK. I have no positions in KO, PEP and V, but plan to initiate position soon.
