Portfolio Update – Up 0.75% in March 2012

My portfolio balances at close of trading on 30th March were:

RY.TO $ 57.81 3.83% 0.0% Financials
POW.TO $ 26.44 5.76% 4.5% Financials
SJR-B.TO $ 21.11 3.94% 3.9% Consumer Discretionary
SLF.TO $ 23.67 8.83% 0.0% Financials

TRP.TO $ 42.83 -1.70% 4.4% Energy
AAPL $ 598.77 11.61% 4.9% Information Technology
S&P Fund $ 117.12 4.79% 14.4% US Equity Fund
Bond Fund $ 216.60 -0.33% 27.9% Bond Fund
Cash     16.5% Cash
Total     100.0%  

Overall my portfolio is up 2.80% since last month, including cash contributions. Without these cash contributions the portfolio would be up 0.75%.

For comparison my TI Index is down 0.18%, the DOW is up 2.01% and the TSX is down 1.99%.

My investments have done quite well compared with the TI Index and the TSX, but not as well as the DOW. Winners this month include Apple (AAPL) and Sun Life (SLF.TO). Losers were TransAlta (TA.TO) Canadian Oil Sands (COS.TO) and Enerplus (ERF.TO).

My bond holdings are at 27.9%. I will rebalance to 30%.
