Recent Buys (Aug 1 2016 to Aug 11 2016)

My Purchases over the past 2 weeks

Flower Foods (FLO)
56 shares of FLO at an average price of $16.11 = $902.48
 
Kept buying as the stock was hit by slightly missing revenue estimates and it's contractor model investigation by DOL. Not very bad news, bit of an overreaction. Very bullish on this stock and will buy more soon

The GEO Group Inc (GEO)
10 shares of GEO at an average price of $32.20 = $320.20

New purchase. Will add more

CF Industries (CF)
16 shares of CF at an average price of $20.95 = $335.27

Averaging down on the Cyclical stock. Not as solid as AGU. Risky stock. But good dividend. Hopefully bounces back.

Gilead Sciences (GILD)
1 share of GILD at a price of $78.53 = $78.53

Averaging down again. 

Total Investments =  $1636.48

Sorry for the late posts. Have been busy with work and not many transactions in the month of July.

Recent Buys (Jun 18 2016 - Jun 27 2016)

Thoughts on Brexit (IMHO):

I don't think the Brexit supporters/ British public expected this result
It has some merits but more disadvantages
The paper money loss over the few days could have paid (on paper again) for the EU membership for at-least 25-50 years
I'm not sure if they can stop/slow immigration (legal/illegal/asylum/refugees) with this exit.
Without helping the poorer/unstable EU countries, the entire EU has a risk of falling down with them
IMHO, this is a stupid vote and poor result. They could have all sit together and come up with a new/different plan.
But the good news is it creates a buying opportunity. Please share your opinion too.
