Portfolio Update – Up 0.17% in October 2012

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

Ticker Price (C$) Price Change Percentage Industry
T.TO $ 64.84 4.56% 4.9% Telecommunications
COS.TO $ 21.20 0.71% 4.2% Energy
PHY-U.TO $ 14.75 -1.13% 5.7% Gold
POW.TO $ 24.23 1.38% 6.1% Financials
BMO.TO $ 59.02 1.58% 6.4% Financials
AAPL $ 595.38 -9.25% 3.8% Information Technology
INTC $ 21.63 -2.93% 6.4% Information Technology
IVV $ 141.49 -0.37% 8.8% US Equity Fund
XIU.TO $ 17.88 1.53% 6.3% Canadian Equity Fund
S&P Fund $ 118.79 -0.31% 10.0% US Equity Fund
EAFE Fund $ 88.40 2.41% 10.3% Global Equity Fund
Bond Fund $ 223.66 -0.22% 25.3% Bond Fund
Cash 2.0% Cash
Total 100.0%

Overall my portfolio is up 0.17% since last month. There we no cash contributions this month. For comparison my TI Index is down 0.53%, the DOW is down 2.54% and the TSX is up 0.86%.

My investments have done well compared with most indices. Winners this month include Telus (T.TO) up 4.56% and my EAFE fund up 2.41%. Losers include Apple (AAPL) down a whopping 9.25% and Intel (INTC) down 2.93%.  Apple’s decline looks like a simple mean reversion and presents an opportunity to top up.  Intel’s decline over the past few months is deeper but also presents a buying opportunity in my opinion.

My bond holdings are at 25.3%, which is acceptably close to my target of 25%. No rebalancing is required this month.

I put most of my cash to work last month so my cash is 2.0%, which is fine.
