Portfolio Update – Up 2.04% in October 2011

My portfolio balances at close of trading on 31st October were:

Ticker Price (C$) Price Change Percentage Industry
BHP $ 78.15 12.05% 0.0% Materials
COS.TO $ 23.10 13.29% 6.5% Energy
ERF.TO $ 27.72 7.15% 6.5% Energy
INTC $ 24.56 9.69% 0.0% Technology
MFC.TO $ 13.16 10.22% 0.0% Financial
PHY-U.TO $ 14.77 0.16% 7.5% Gold
SVU $ 8.03 14.82% 0.0% Services
TD.TO $ 75.23 0.86% 0.0% Financial
IBM $ 184.80 0.67% 0.0% Technology
KMP $ 76.06 5.89% 0.0% Energy
BMO.TO $ 58.89 n/a 6.2% Financial
POW.TO $ 25.10 n/a 5.6% Financial
SJR-B.TO $ 20.19 n/a 4.9% Technology
SLF.TO $ 25.16 n/a 5.6% Financial
TA.TO $ 21.93 n/a 5.1% Energy
TRP.TO $ 42.37 n/a 5.7% Energy
S&P Fund $ 102.64 5.73% 16.0% US Equity Fund
Bond Fund $ 211.78 -0.46% 29.9% Bond Fund
Cash 0.5% Cash
Total 100.0%

Overall my portfolio is up 2.94% since last month, including additional cash contributions. Without these cash contributions the portfolio would be up 2.04%.

For comparison my TI Index is up 5.09%, the DOW is up 9.54% and the TSX is up 5.40%.

Markets are up significantly this month. The Dow is up almost 10%. My portfolio has not performed as well compared with the Dow or compared with my TI Index. Changing to a more conservative, high dividend portfolio at the bottom of the market might have been a mistake: this could be an example of an emotional decision (being shaken out of a volatile market).
