Thursday, August 30, 2018: Just Another Rollercoaster Day!

Well, Market Indexes Were in the Green…

DOW -137.65—-NASDAQ -21.32—-SP500 -12.91—-NYSE -92.23

Portfolio Winners: AMZN, AAPL, ISRG
Portfolio Losers: BA, CAT, AEO

Well, things started out great, even though DOW futures would predict a slightly red day. Then everything was in the green for the most part. Then mixed, then all red.

For the most part, Amazon, Apple and Intuitive Surgical had strong rallies.

ILMN, COST, WWE, SRDX were also in the green.

LULU did reasonably great with strong earnings quarter. Yoga pants are still hot!

I bought back into MSFT and that stock is performing.

Other than that, I’m just glad things didn’t take a scary downturn despite a lot of negative news out there regarding Trump once again. Perhaps more fear about trade tariffs as more will kick in starting in September.

Today’s Portfolio Winners

Amazon, Inc. (AMZN)

Amazon’s stock hit an all-time high of $2,025.57 a share, and surpassed the 2k mark, and getting closer to that 1 trillion dollar market cap.

Apple, Inc. (AAPL)

Interesting that CNBC interviewed Warren Buffett again this morning, and AAPL stock shot up to 228.26! Hmm… I need to be prepared for when they interview Warren Buffett again, being that he owns millions of shares of AAPL and recently bought more!

Intuitive Surgical, Inc. (ISRG)

ISRG is one of those stocks that is doing quite well but has much lower trading volume than the top contenders, and seems to perform under the radar. It’s a great performing stock. The company just needs to start offering a dividend!
