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…

Pre-Market Investing

Trading opportunities don’t end just because the stock market closes. Investors can still trade news reports and company announcements using the electronic communications networks, or ECNs.

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…
