Recent transactions:

  • Initiated monthly purchases of Bitcoin ($10) and Ethereum ($10).

  • Added cash to each brokerage account (Robinhood, TD Ameritrade, and OptionsHouse).

  • Buys: WASH, TWX, EWW, FSLR, XLV.

  • Sells: BX, AAPL, BAC, F.

Observations:

  • Too much cash? Probably--especially since ~1,000 is in Robinhood, which does not pay interest on cash deposits. But, I like having cash on hand as I wait for buying opportunities. Currently researching ex-US companies, esp. Mexico and UK, and waiting for "dip" in my favorite US companies. Would love to increase position in CAR, MSFT, and SBUX, for example. Also have a watchlist of US and international companies that are currently overpriced in my opinion.

  • Not well diversified. Should buy some international and/or sector ETFs to gain exposure to markets where I'm not comfortable picking individual stocks. (Started doing this with XLV and EWW, but those are still tiny positions.)

  • I am overly exposed to the Canadian cannabis bubble. Would prune those positions if not for high friction.

Thanks for reading. I welcome your comments and questions.
