Bought 25 shares of RDS.B today, at 49.92 USD. Not a personal buy, but for my mother, because I am mostly out of investing money myself.

Shell yields 7.56% and is an incredible bargain. The only concern with Shell is that it may not be able to maintain the dividend. This is because of the high cost of the BG purchase, and falling oil prices. I simply don't agree that the risk is so high that Shell will resort to cutting its dividend. As far as I can research, Shell last cut its dividend in 1945. So I think Shell has gone through worse than currently depressed oil prices.

The reason I prefer to buy Shell rather than, say, Exxon is, 1, it yields much more (XOM yields 4%), 2, the strong dollar is not condusive to purchase of US stocks at the moment and 3, Shell has no taxes on its dividends. That is, RDS.B payouts are not taxed, RDS.A are. Taxes can be deducted from personal taxes, what happens if you don't have any local taxes to deduct from? As you might have in an ISK?

Portfolio Update: Day after black monday

Wow, I was in the red, down almost 40k since my last update in July, and that was pretty bad too. But today say a rebound, but maybe its a dead cat bounce? Stocks I'm interested in checking out to buy this week will be Shell, Exxon and Apple.

Portfolio Update - Greek Crisis!

Hello everyone. I've decided to change to English to reach a wider audience and also my Swedish just wasn't very good :).
Anywho, its been a while since I last updated because things really didn't seem to be very interesting and I've mostly run low of investment liquidity. I am mostly investing for my mother nowadays. But today, I'll talk about my portfolio during the crisis Greece is facing. I've taken several screen dumps of my portfolio over several days to see its effect.

About a 4% loss from June 29th, 22,000kr. I am still more than half way to being a millionaire! :)
