Or, I guess I should say two stocks I’m rere-buying and two stocks I’m rere-re-buying over the next few days. In the real money portfolio I manage for the Motley Fool, this’ll be my third nibble at Citigroup (NYSE: C ) and AIG (NYSE: AIG ) and my fourth nibble at WFC (NYSE: WFC ) and Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL ) .
Call this a modified version of buying in thirds and of looking within your own portfolio for new purchases.
Before we get to the financial companies (which are the primary focus of my real money portfolio), let’s start with my rationale on the most-talked-about stock in the market.
It seems I’ve been catching a falling knife with Apple. As the stock price has fallen from its $700 highs, I’ve bought in at $529, $467, and $424… and now close to $400. I continue to be bullish because Apple and its leader, Tim Cook, continue to “think different.” The financial press and armchair analysts alike have been spoiled by past success and are beating the drum for Apple to wow us. Now! But panic hasn’t set in in Cupertino. Cook continues to play it methodically and close to the vest, allowing the world to speculate on TVs, watches, and cheaper iPhones.
