November 2015 Financial Asset Roundup
Here are my current financial assets as of the market close on November 10th, 2015:
The S&P 500 has been on a nice run since the last update, up 3.19% during that time:

On the jobs front, the unemployment rate for October fell to 5.0%, with a strong 271,000 jobs added. Oil prices have fallen to the $43 level, with recent local gasoline ($1.99) and heating oil ($2.00) purchases right around the $2 per gallon level.
On the non-financial front, my most recent mini project has been installing new Honeywell WiFi thermostats in my home. These thermostats require a common wire, so I did have to run a new thermostat wire for one of the zones and had to follow up the install with a little drywall patch and paint because the new thermostats are much smaller than the bulky seventeen year old units they replaced. They were a little pricey at ~$170 each, but that will be offset by the $100 rebate Mass Save is currently offering.
