My portfolio balances at close of trading on 31st May were:
|Ticker||Price (C$)||Price Change||Percentage||Industry|
|SJR-B.TO||$ 19.75||-3.00%||3.7%||Consumer Discretionary|
|AAPL||$ 596.83||3.40%||5.6%||Information Technology|
|S&P Fund||$ 113.34||-1.47%||18.8%||US Equity Fund|
|Bond Fund||$ 221.45||2.12%||25.4%||Bond Fund|
Overall my portfolio is down 0.12% since last month, including cash contributions. Without these cash contributions the portfolio would be down 0.80%. For comparison my TI Index is down 4.13%, the DOW is down 6.21% and the TSX is down 6.34%.
My investments have done very well compared with the TI Index, the TSX, and the DOW. Winners this month include TransAlta (TA.TO) and bonds. Losers were Power Corp (POW.TO), Canadian Oil Sands (COS.TO) and Shaw (SJR-B.TO).
My bond holdings are at 25.4%, which is acceptably close to my target of 25%. No rebalancing is required this month.
My cash is at 18.5%, which is lower than my target of 25%. This is because I purchased Apple (AAPL) today. I am OK with this level of cash (i.e. I don’t want to sell anything right now) and I expect to put most of this cash to work after the summer (sell in May and…).
