Live Blogging: Tuesday, August 8, 2017
I’m taking the opportunity to post another live session, focusing primarily on the stock market.
But, also focusing on a hodge-podge of random stuff.
The stock market opens in above 5 minutes as I write this.
I don’t know about you, but I find it kind of exciting to be blogging early in the morning and doing some stock market research. I bought my first pre-market stock, so I’m kind of nervous and excited at the same time. But, we’ll see how that goes this morning…
7:39am – I bought CVS CVS 77.66 -1.23 -1.56% during pre-market hours, and I guess I’m regretting it now, as news this morning said earnings beat out estimates. So, I tried to buy pre-market a couple of times this month, but couldn’t because maybe shares were unavailable to buy pre-market. I was wondering why CVS was such an easy buy in the pre-market hours. Live and learn.
In other news, Raytheon RTN 176.90 -0.35 -0.20% was a great recent purchase, as the stock is surging this morning!
8:05am – CVS CVS 77.66 -1.23 -1.56% is trying to make a comeback from this morning’s gap down…
Check back… more later…
