The Investment Road to Freedom

February 2012 – Month in Review

After getting the wheels in motion rolling on February 8th, the Investment Road to Freedom train is well under way as we look back on the month of February. While it was a month of little activity in that I made no buys or sells, no dividend income and no options income received, I did manage to hit my target of contributing $416 to my IRA. I actually should have done $416.66 (5k / 12 months) but that is a minor point! I am currently looking at a couple of different buys for my IRA and will probably make a purchase in the next few weeks. The ROI for my IRA is a little disappointing but I am expecting a stronger March for this account with the sole holding being Majesco Entertainment Company (COOL). Q1 earnings results will be announced March 13th and I’m expecting a good showing on the back of the top selling Zumba fitness games.

    Like you March was a boring month for me. No sells or buys. I did add to my cash position so I guess that is progress. Kudos for funding your IRA, that’s great!
