100/week Challenge---Week 14 S&P 500 1979
I was going to buy mores shares of Amerigas (APU), but it has been on a mini run recently and Ensco (ESV) has come down and looked like a better buy. Phillip Morris (PM) and General Electric (GE) have been lagging all year and still look pretty good at these levels.
For the rest of the year I will be working on improving the quality of my holdings. This does not mean I won't look at some lower tier companies that have fallen on tough times....Conagra (CAG) and Maxim Integrated (MXIM) are two companies that I will be watching closely. I also have some smaller positions in Waste Management (WM), General Motors (GM), and Baxter (BAX) that I want to complete positions in.
Companies on my radar for next week include Boeing (BA), General Electric (GE), Coke (KO), Procter and Gamble (PG), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Altria (MO), and McDonald's (MCD), ExxonMobil (XOM). John Deere (DE) is also starting to look interesting.
