Market is up This Week!

Posted on | July 1, 2011 | No Comments

The stock market ended up this week.  I think it was a rouse to get everyone to enjoy their weekend.  I’m not complaining though.  Both the Dow and S&P 500 surged over 5% this week.  I knew I should have bought some more stock last week.  My biggest gain this week was in Visa (V).  The debit fees were capped by the Fed at 21 cents a transaction.  This caused V to climb 15% in a single trading day.  I think it has given back some of the gains but I’ll take it!   I keep reminding myself though that although the stock is up this week, I really would prefer for them to increase their dividend!  I own about 25 shares so I think I’ll cash some of the shares next week if the price is right and cover my initial investment.  I’ll keep the remaining shares  forever!

Have a great 4th of July!
