My portfolio balances at close of trading on 31st July were:
|Ticker||Price (C$)||Price Change||Percentage||Industry|
|AAPL||$ 614.01||2.88%||5.6%||Information Technology|
|S&P Fund||$ 115.77||2.14%||19.6%||US Equity Fund|
|Bond Fund||$ 222.93||0.67%||25.3%||Bond Fund|
Overall my portfolio is up 0.28% since last month, including cash contributions. Without these cash contributions the portfolio would be up 0.01%. For comparison my TI Index is up 1.20%, the DOW is up 1.00% and the TSX is up 0.59%.
My investments have done poorly compared with these comparators. Winners this month include Telus (T.TO) up 2.42%, and Apple (AAPL) up 3.36%. Losers include TransAlta (TA.TO), down 9.28%.
My bond holdings are at 25.3%, which is acceptably close to my target of 25%. No rebalancing is required this month.
My cash is at 19.2%, which is lower than my target of 25%. I am OK with this level of cash and I still expect to put most of this cash to work after the summer.
