I started also investing using MFI and thought I will start posting my story. I started back in July 2012 and will be buying every 3 months. I will be buying 5 stocks and I will use the list of top 30 stocks over $100 mil market cap. I generate the list and then find the stocks that have a CAP rating of 4 stars or more and then pick from there.

My first buys on July 5th where the following:

IDDC @ 29.53
CJES @ 19.04
TNAV @ 6.34
MANT @ 24.30
GTAT @ 5.33

Prices include commission.

My next buy was this past October 1st and there where the following:

PDLI @ 7.88
CSCO @ 19.40
DLX @ 31.18
DLB @ 32.87
HFC @ 39.99

I’m not sure but I might have run the wrong list for the 1st batch using a smaller market cap or the second with a larger cap.

So here it is lets see how this goes.
