Portfolio Update – Up 0.01% in July 2012

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

Ticker Price (C$) Price Change Percentage Industry
T.TO $ 62.62 4.16% 6.3% Telecommunications
COS.TO $ 20.18 0.45% 5.4% Energy
PHY-U.TO $ 14.13 3.03% 5.5% Gold
POW.TO $ 23.04 0.52% 5.8% Financials
TA.TO $ 15.65 -7.12% 7.4% Utilities
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
Cash 19.2% Cash
Total 100.0%

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.
