The PiggyBankBuilder Portfolio Challege – May 2015 Results

I’m starting to read some concerning things about the stock market and the economy. Let’s see how I fared and then I will give my final analysis.

  • Krogers (KR) – Purchase price – $63.53, number of shares 23. Current Price: $71.68  a gain of $187.45
  • Microsoft (MSFT) – Purchase price $46.76, number of 32. Current Price: $46.28, a loss of $25.28
  • iShares Silver Trust (SLV) – Purchase price $15.11, number of shares 99. Current Price: $15.77 a gain of $13.86
  • BlackBerry (BBRY) - Purchase price $10.82, number of shares 138, Current Price $9.80 a loss of $219.42

Well there it is, I’m in the red, I am down $43.39. crashIs this the end of the world? No, but could it be the beginning of trouble? You bet 

I predicted that I would be up by 200 about now, WRONG! Looking ahead I am going to hang in there and see what the rest of June brings. Is another recession coming? I certainly hope not and I won’t make such a dire prediction with out more data. As always time will tell.
