In anticipation of the money transfer, I sold off my shares of Altria and Fifth Street Cooperation. I purchased both in May of last year and kept them for almost exactly 8 months. The results of my investments are attached.
The results include commission costs. Overall I made $48.34, excluding minimal taxes. This is not too bad of a result, for a $1,000 investment over 8 months. For a start into income investing, I consider it a positive, especially since it was held for such a short term. I am now researching purchases for the new account and am considering putting in an additional $1000, depending on how we do at tax and bonus season.
