Teach Me To Inve$t

I purchased some stocks of Colgate some time ago in my search for another “quality stock” to add to my profile (can you see a pattern here?!). I was tracking some different companies on my handy-dandy excel spreadsheet and 1 day I required the plunge and made the decision Colgate would be the recent addition and it has not let me down! About a month before their 2:1 stock split which occurred on 05/16/2013 I purchased the stock. What the heck is a stock split?

Corporations sometimes opt to “split” the stock price to make it more affordable to traders to choose the shares and gain new investors, among other reasons. 57.5 each. An ongoing company can execute a change stock split too, and it is the same idea. So, do not dread splits. Your position with the business doesn’t change. So anyways, that’s what occurred with CL two months ago.

Earnings for second quarter 2013 were reported this past Thursday July 25 and let’s just say they made me an extremely happy shareholder. Colgate can be an amazing company with amazing management who cares about the development of the business and staying competitive. Some may believe that a company that is around for as long as Colgate may not have much room to grow but their earnings call proved that’s false.
