"A stock is never to high to buy" - Kroger patience

NYSE:KR   Kroger Company (The)
For more than a year I have been watching Kroger NYSE:KR stock. I stop there every time I buy groceries so it is one of those companies that fall under "Cupboard Investing" in stocks you know and use. For something as mundane as selling groceries it is quite a volatile stock.

The history really begins in 2020 when a member of my Discord who is very bullish the stock got me interested. Kroger had a big earnings dip on December 2020 and I hesitated to pull the trigger. I prefer to only enter any instrument on an indicator defined setup. Entering on the drop would have just been a "gut trade" on my bullish bias. So I waited. For reasons unknown the stock got a massive RIP in January during the Meme Stock Madness that month. Clearly I had missed the run. So I waited.

It took 10 months until October 2021 before on my daily scans I finally saw KR with a bullish Spike Alert. It fit my rules for happening at a 50% Retracement Level so I went in. The trade played out to the first target with no problems and I left on shares for the long term position I desired.

Patience pays off. Do just jump into a stock on FOMO. You'll always get an opportunity even if it takes months of disciplined waiting if you are diligent.
