Portfolio Update – Up 0.31% in December 2011

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

Ticker Price (C$) Price Change Percentage Industry
COS.TO $ 23.25 8.39% 6.5% Energy
ERF.TO $ 25.85 -3.00% 6.0% Energy
PHY-U.TO $ 14.14 -9.10% 7.1% Gold
BMO.TO $ 55.88 -6.34% 5.9% Financial
POW.TO $ 23.82 6.86% 5.3% Financial
SJR-B.TO $ 20.25 -3.89% 4.8% Technology
SLF.TO $ 18.90 2.38% 4.2% Financial
TA.TO $ 21.02 -4.41% 4.9% Energy
TRP.TO $ 44.53 3.85% 5.9% Energy
S&P Fund $ 106.04 1.16% 18.0% US Equity Fund
Bond Fund $ 217.12 1.69% 30.6% Bond Fund
Cash     0.8% Cash
Total     100.0%  

Overall my portfolio is up 1.19% since last month, including additional cash contributions. Without these cash contributions the portfolio would be up 0.31%.

For comparison my TI Index is down 1.31%, the DOW is up 1.43% and the TSX is down 2.04%.

My portfolio performed quite well compared with the TSX and compared with my TI Index. Biggest movers: Canadian Oil Sands (COS.TO) is up 8.39%; gold is down 9.48%.

The European debt crisis rumbles on, unnerving investors and suppressing prices. Indices rose a little near the end of the year as fund managers did a little window dressing. I expect a little pullback in early January 2012 (unwinding of window dressing) and then…?

My bonds are now 30.6% of my portfolio and gold is 7.1%, which is OK. No rebalancing required this month.
