Buys and Sells for the Week 8/5

Lots of earnings have been reported and Wall Street traders start their vacations. Will lower trade volumes create more volatility for August? Here are my trades for the week:

  1. Allstate Corp. (ALL)    – increased position – I’ll keep taking advantage of the price, buying for tomorrow and not today. Grabbed 1 share @ $113.08 and a 3% yield.
  2. Packaging Corp of America (PKG)    – increased position – Didn’t catch the low of the day but still satisfied. Grabbed 2 shares @ $135.13 and a 3.7% yield
