Closing a loser, US Concrete

Updated: Sep 26, 2018

OK, enough with #USCR. I can't take it anymore. The stock had some recent Hurricane Florence-related buying that seemed spurious, and in retrospect, I should have sold at $54. USCR still would have been a big loser for me, but $5 a share is $5 a share.

What's the long-term lesson? Don't ever count on Congress passing real infrastructure bills that repair previously built infrastructure projects. Their ability to kick the can down the road is seemingly infinite.

Price: $49.10

Loss: 32.3%

TRADE: Exiting Alphabet

Closing out the end out of my #GOOGL position for now, as Amazon and Facebook are taking share from them. Management painted a less-than-positive picture on the earnings call. Price: $1,186.64

TRADE: Trimming Raytheon

Let's trim some #RTN for a profit; I've had a big defense position for a long time, so let's book some gains to be safe. Price: $182.70, sold about 20% of the position.

TRADE: Closing Amgen

#AMGN has some legal risk that has come to light, so I'm just going to dump it and take a very small loss. Price: $190.77
