Needing Real Estate, buying store chain Ahold



Today, we improved our Obermatt portfolio analysis tool (free download). It now shows the percentage share from each country and each industry group in your portfolio. I just used this function to make this week’s stock purchase.

When I analyzed my portfolio with the Obermatt portfolio analysis tool on Google Sheets, I realized that I don’t have much investment in the real estate and services sector. To find such a stock, I used the Obermatt stock filter to find the most attractive companies in Europe.

The stock filter revealed Ahold, a Dutch retail chain, which I then researched further because retail chains have a lot of real estate and services exposure which I need in my portfolio.

For Ahold, I found encouraging research reports and, not unimportant for me, I found favorable reviews by its employees. This is important to me because I believe that employees are the company’s most important asset.

For my weekly investment budget of CHF 5,000, I bought 200 Ahold shares.
