I decided to start slowly rebuilding the nest egg I liquidated to pay some bills. I put $100 in each of ten stocks, companies that I like (or don't like for two): Becton Dickinson (BDX), CenturyLink (CTL), Darden Restaurants (DRI), Kroger (KR), Quest Diagnostics (DGX), Phillips 66 (PSX), Royal Dutch Shell Class B (RDS B), Target (TGT), Wal-Mart (WMT), and Zions Bancorporation (ZION). I used ShareBuilder, where you can do dollar-based investing. How did your stocks perform today?

AMAT (APPLIED MATERIALS INC) - semiconductor manufacturing equipment
HE (HAWAIIAN ELEC INDS INC) - vertically integrated electric utility
KR (KROGER CO) - grocer (very good luck with it in the past)

My stockbroker (ShareBuilder) is doing one of their promotions again: a $100 bonus for $10,000 in new deposits. I waited to turn 59 1/2 and I bought my retirement home. I had some extra money left over and I decided to put it in the stock market. I typically buy nice, conservative dividend-paying stocks and plow the dividends back into new holdings. I put in $10,200 which is enough to buy seventeen more stocks than the Boeing I already had and have a $600 cost basis for each. (I like the dollar-based investing instead of buying a natural number of shares.)

My first dozen purchases will be on the 18th. I'm buying $600 of each of the following:

Becton Dickinson & Company (BDX)
CenterPoint Energy (CNP)
Capital One Financial (COF)
Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPS)
Ford Motor Company (F)
Nike (NKE)
Phillips 66 (PSX)
Royal Dutch Shell plc Class B (RDS B)
Sasol Limited (SSL)
AT&T (T)
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSM)
Verizon Communications (VZ)

I'll buy $600 worth of another five stocks in December. Haven't decided what to buy yet. I have three energy manufacturing companies and three utilities, so I will probably stay away from them. But I could buy Hawaiian Electric Industries (HE) for the excellent dividend because I don't have a vertically integrated electric utility.

CenterPoint Energy does the wires and poles for 5000 square miles around Houston along with natural gas distribution in several states. All rate-regulated businesses with a determined rate of return.

Decided to acquire a bit more Boeing stock, figuring $600 was a nice even cost basis that offers itself to easier incremental purchase:

All I have left is 5.6122 shares of Boeing - $600.00 cost basis, $721.79 current value.

Liquidated nine of my ten positions yesterday to raise cash. Just kept The Boeing Company. Us retiree-stockholders enjoy getting our glossy annual reports each year. I turn 59 1/2 in October and then I can make an IRA withdrawal without the 10% penalty tax for early withdrawal.

Stocks that got liquidated ($483.00 cost basis on each):
Becton Dickinson (BDX) - $585.00
Quest Diagnostics (DGX) - $495.47
Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPS) - $613.28
Ford Motor Company (F) - $537.75
Nike Class B (NKE) - $598.04
Phillips 66 (PSX) - $697.51
Royal Dutch Shell plc Class B (RDS B) - $594.88
Target Corporation (TGT) - $477.68
Verizon Communications (VZ) - $503.32

All I have left is 4.6789 shares of Boeing - $483.00 cost basis, $587.58 current value.

Amber started a new job Thursday, but we're going to try to finish off the apartment this weekend. I think the remaining messes are behind the dining room table and in the computer room closet. Amber is going to do the computer room closet, I'm going to have to do about half the stuff behind the dining room table myself!

I don't know how I keep so busy being retired (actually I do, my friend Amber is between jobs and we've been hacking through all the accumulated clutter) but we're 60% done with the trading week without me updating this topic! I've actually got my shoe collection to the point where we've got everything matched that we could find matches for.... and we're pruning it down a whole bunch. Salvation Army will have a lot of sneakers coming in Saturday!

Today was the day I bought seven new stocks to go with the twenty existing positions I already had. The "portfolio performance since inception" number was hit. However, I can say all seven of the new stocks went up from where they were purchased and none of them went down. That's a good omen!

Portfolio performance since inception: Up 13.25% (from up 17.35%)

All-time performance by stock:
Best: Phillips 66 Company (PSX) - up 45.25%
Worst: Baxter International (BAX) - up 0.04%

Daily performance by stock:
Best; Zions Bancorporation (ZION) - up 2.00%
Worst: Sasol Limited (SSL) - down 1.38%

Movers: 17 gainers, 10 losers

New positions, cost basis of each $483.00:
Baxter International (BAX)
Quest Diagnostics (DGX)
Eli Lilly & Company (LLY)
Packaging Corporation of America (PKG)
Steel Dynamics (STLD)
Target (TGT)
Xilinx (XLNX)

I seem to be rotating into medical stocks. After reading an article in FORTUNE about them, maybe I should have bought Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) as my Big Pharma purchase. The only thing is they're specializing in oncology (cancer) drugs.

Did some portfolio pruning today, sold a half-dozen stocks that didn't perform or had a "sell" rating. Had enough capital gains to open seven new positions. Picked out seven stocks that I'll comment about next Tuesday (ShareBuilder's Automatic Investment Plan day) as I may change my mind before then. Two of them right now are positions I closed a while back and I decided the market has digested all the bad news about those stocks...
