Cash 9.6% Cash
Total 100.0%

Overall my portfolio is up 2.43% since last month.  Excluding cash contributions my portfolio is up 1.13%.  For comparison my TI Index is up 0.45%, the DOW is up 1.40% and the TSX is up 1.08%.

My investments have performed well against these indices. Winners this month include Telus (T.TO) up 5.19%, S&P Fund (IVV) up 4.62%, and Power Corp (POW.TO) up 5.07%.  The only losers was gold down 3.36%.

My bond holdings are at 24.7%, which is a little lower than my target of 25%, but acceptable.

You can see from the “percentage” column in the table above that I have sold most of my individual stocks and my gold.  This is part of a broader portfolio rationalization process.  I expect to sell the final stock (Telus) and to buy back gold tomorrow.
