I Cashed Out.
Fri, Apr 20, 2018

So it's been a few weeks and I am finally up on this position after being down.

When a stock moves the opposite way, I try to remember why I bought it in the first place.

This kinda helps.

It would be great if stocks would just go up right after I buy.

It would be a lot simpler that way.

Even though MRK hasn't reached $60, I am selling at $58.50.

I think it might get there in a few days but I would rather cash out.

Of course, if the stock dropped back down to where I bought it that would suck.

So I made a few bucks on this one.

I am watching to see if it drops down to $55.

Then maybe I will get back in.


Fri, Apr 20, 2018 MRK @ $58.83

So this stock has sold off quite a bit over the past few days.

What's kinda crazy is that the 5 year chart is showing me that there is a long-termĀ support right here.

I am getting in at $54.50.

Merck is a Dow component and one of the largest companies in the world.

I am hoping to get a nice move back up to the high $50s.

We will see!
