November 2018 Watchlist

November Watch list November is fast approaching, so it is time to contemplating on possible buys for November. Cash will be scarce, so I will be evaluating the possibility of making three (3) purchase. I have narrow twelve (12) stocks. I may add 2 more stocks and add to other currently on my portfolio. As we wind down towards the end of the year, I will also be saving money to pay my tax next year. On my last post about the fund update  I talked about trimming amount of stocks in my portfolio more to come on that. The current market gyrations can be scary and keep one in the sidelines, however I have always had the mind set that continually investing no matter what the market gyrations bring, will help fuel my long term goals. That is why I wish and hope to continually investing weekly If I could. So here are the stocks on my radar for November: PFE, UTX, SO, PSX, XOM, PFG, AFL, MAIN, IP, OKE, JNJ and KO. JNJ, OKE and KO would be new position if I decide to buy them this m
