Was feeling a little nutty today, and bought 100 shares of Nikon (NINOF) at $28 a share. Had rolled old 401(k)'s into Fidelity, and was squirrelling away the proceeds into a lot of new investments. The order has not cleared yet, but I assume it will do so Monday.
Was considering buying some Canon, but at present the stock didn't look promising enough even for a lark. Also, Canon does copiers, etc., so it seemed like less of a "pure photo play", which is what I thought was interesting in the first place.
Maybe if this grows, after some years, Nikon can buy me a nice Canon to play with in my retirement.
Feel free to check in from time to time and flame me royally if I lose my a*s on it! Will teach me to stick to mutual funds where qualified professionals make the investments.
