We continue the discussion from the last entry.
When you check the PDF (attached below) this week, you will notice that we have allocated the cash a little differently, from how we had organized our segmented categories in previous weeks …
As we are looking to buy Union Pacific (UNP) (whenever the stocks free-fall stops long enough to do so), I have moved $305.00 away from the ‘Purchase’ category, and reserved it specifically for Union Pacific (UNP).
This leaves only $10.19 allocated to our ‘open purchase’ category, which really is not enough cash to purchase anything. But we can build that category up in the future.
At this point, as previously stated I need to build up the capital in the ‘Capital Gains Strategy’ category. We need a few hundred dollars more there, and I can pick up some instruments for a good price, looking for them to appreciate for capital gains, at the same time I am buying stocks for dividends and income.
All the while, we get to collect the yield on the instruments we have already bought.
‘Sharpe Income’ Specific Actions
We keep an eye on Union Pacific (UNP). At this point, I think Union Pacific (UNP) has farther to fall. So I will collect our dividends, and wait until I think that Union Pacific (UNP) will have possibly formed a bottom, before looking again. Our focus at this point, is on saving our capital contributions for the capital gains strategy.
JNK will pay us in a week or so, American Express (AXP) will pay us a dividend on August 10th, and IBM will probably not pay us until the beginning of September.

We continue the Sharpe Income project with this next entry.
