Personal Finance

As of May 1st, 2013 I am undertaking a new financial endeavor. You can read all about it in this blog post. To summarize:

From this point forward, I’m only going to purchase products from corporations I own a part of.

I call it the “Only Pay Yourself” strategy (OPY). The theory is this, if you’re going to pay a corporation for their goods and services, then it makes sense that you’d believe in their quality and long term viability.

One of the question’s I’m trying to answer is: Is this inherent belief in the worth of a product or service useful in a market strategy?

You can view the rolling purchase log for my OPY stock purchases at the OPY Purchase Log Page.

  2. Looking at that spreadsheet, you should mainly buy shares from the trading company since it’s clearly them who benefit the most 🙂

    • Agreed. They called me up to offer me some free trades, which does make me think I should look into a X free trades per month service.
