October 5, 2018.  Well…….Thursday was not fun.  The stock market tumbled as well as our Core Portfolio holdings.  As we mentioned yesterday morning, the financials are very weak and the chickens came home to roost during the day.

Our primary focus is dividend paying individual corporate bonds, and other fixed income investments like floating rate instruments.  Today we are buying something other than bonds for a change……we are buying a STOCK for a short term TRADE.  We studied trading for over nine years, but have always preferred to focus in the fixed income dividend paying arena. 

This is not a long term holding, simply a trade in a holding that looks positive and could produce some decent return rather quickly.

BUY HAL, Halliburton Company.  See a short description below.  The price this morning is $41.89
