Personal Buy Update

Add-on to holdings in a recent idea of the month stock

By Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe, August 13, 2013

Just FYI, I noticed that while I was on the road a limit buy order triggered for my account that I didn’t have the chance to write to you about yesterday — I bought another slug of Ligand Pharmaceuticals (LGND) at $42.50, so I’ve increased my holdings in that stock by about 50%. Now a medium-sized holding for me (a bit over 2% of my portfolio). No real news about the company since I last wrote about them, I’ve just been trying to increase my holdings on dips.

Personal Capital is an advertiser with Stock Gumshoe, but Travis also uses it every day for his personal accounts and finds it invaluable. Here's what he said: "They offer a great (and genuinely FREE) 'second opinion' for your financial plan, but what I love most is their automated financial dashboard -- it will look at all your assets and debts, tally up your asset allocation, project where you'll be at retirement, and suggest ways to manage risk or improve returns. It's free, I think their free tools are great, and I think it's worth checking out -- you can do so here.
