Investing Experiment: 05/17/2016

I joined the “Start with $10,000” game in Investopdia’s Stock Simulator

The market was already closed, so I put in the order for the stocks I wanted in my simulator portfolio. I pretended I only had $1,000 for each stock and ordered the following number of shares:

Stock # of Shares
MMM: 3M Co 5
PG: Proctor & Gamble Co 11
JNJ: Johnson & Johnson 8
DIV: Global X SuperDividend US ETF 38
O: Realty Income Corp 15
EPR: EPR Properties 13
LTC: LTC Properties Inc 20
STAG: Stag Industrial Inc 46

There’s an overall ranking system in this game. I applaud today’s #1 person, who managed to earn $51,935.05 using just $10,000.

Since I placed 8 orders and the commission fee is $29.95 for each trade (expensive! I am so glad in real life my broker doesn’t have this steep of a commission), then I just lost $239.60. Whelp, that will knock my ranking down right off the bat. Let’s hope one or both of my strategies will eventually help recoup my losses.
