|Bond Fund||$ 226.18||0.44%||24.6%||Bond Fund|
Overall my portfolio is up 0.77% since last month. There were no cash contributions. For comparison my TI Index is up 0.77%, the DOW is up 3.73% (the DOW and S&P500 are at all time highs this month) and the TSX is down 0.56%.
My investments have performed adequately against these indices. Winners this month include my S&P fund up 2.50% and my speculative stocks such as McGraw-Hill (MHP) up 10.25%, StanTec (STN.TO) up 4.89%, and Constellation Software (CSU.TO) up 4.24%*. The main loser was my Emerging Markets Fund (XEM.TO) down 2.59%.
My bond holdings are at 24.6%, which is a little lower than my target of 25%, but acceptable. My speculative portfolio is 8.5% of overall assets, which is less than my 10% maximum, and acceptable.
*Note: The gains in these speculative stocks are not shown in the table above because they were bought after the previous month-end.
