Time to Buy

We don't have a lot of extra cash. Most people don't. But if we did I would buy some stocks.

Crazy, you say?

Nope. Stocks are on sale right now. Specifically, the Aflac stock is down to around $36. When I first started it was around $50 something. Aflac is a GREAT and fundamentally solid company, but the stock is being dragged down by the market. So for me, this is a great time to buy stock in Aflac. Especially when I can take a monthly amount from my monthly statement.

If I had started investing $50 a month a year ago I'd get around one share each month. Now I'll get almost 1.5 shares.

I guess I'm an optimist. I see stocks dropping and think SALE! Or maybe I'm just a shopaholic. :)


  1. I think you are a little of both but buying now would be a good idea. We will have to look into the Aflac stock.

  2. Well, I think we both know I'm a little crazy. LOL :) If I had more cash I'd buy quite a bit of Aflac stock. For now i have to stick with about $50 a month.
