I am just curious. why do u buy 50 shares of OPSW and buy 500 of Disk. Shouldn't u keep it consistent... buy putting equal amount of money in both stocks. I also think its pointless to buy 50 shares. The commisions are going to kill you.


Hi Snizer,

Welcome to the candle shop. The reason is because these are two different accounts. OPSW was bought with my Scottrade, DISK with my IRA at Wells Fargo. The account values are such that I bought as many shares as I could at the time.
