Stock Update

Today I woke up to place an order for Fortune Brands (FO), and Ameritrade had changed it’s site layout!

I struggled for a few minutes to put in a quick order at a low price, but it didn’t happen. NOW I know how to use the system properly.

I ended up buying 20 shares of FO @ $76. This is a long term position I will be holding for several years. I plan to hold FO and GE for 5+ years, adding to the positions if they are strong.

I still have a limit order open to buy 30 shares of GE @ $35.
