Why I Sold Target (TGT)

Selling stocks isn´t something I want to do often, but let´s just make it simple: If you need money, sell. I purchased Target around $53 and sold yesterday at $59. Total profit was only 5%. I never intended this investment to be a buy-and-hold-forever kind of thing. However, owning a stock for only 188 days is short. I admit that. (more…)

We are already in the middle of April and I can see spring is slowly coming. Even though the temperature is around 6 Celsius, the sun is shining. Summer is not that far away anymore.

It’s not that easy finding stocks that trade at an undervalued or fair price these days. At least not if one only looks at S&P 500. Luckily, I’m Norwegian so my periscopes are not just set on the US. It’s set on the globe, and we have some great companies here in the Nordic countries too. (more…)
