So I have a stock tracker app on my phone and I track stocks online with my brokerage account. I mean, you check our investments EVERYDAY RIGHT?!
Just me then?
Anyway something wasn’t feeling right, my phone was tracking MELCA (Meridian energy installment receipts wtf) and the price never seemed to change. It was weird. I thought it was just a glitch in the app. I finally got off my lazy ass and decided to double check, I went to the online share registry and discovered I had actually purchased MEL (Meridian energy ordinary shares).
Anyway the shares are worth $1000 more than whatever the hell I was tracking.
Best one day gain ever.
So there you go, my first ever rich person mistake! Thankfully in my favor!
