Overall my portfolio is down 0.20% since last month. There were no cash contributions. For comparison my TI Index is down 0.80%, the DOW is up 1.79% and the TSX is down 2.30%.
My investments have performed well against the TI and TSX indices, but not the Dow. Winners this month include my EAFE fund (XIN.TO) up 4.53% and my speculative stocks such as McGraw-Hill (MHP) up 2.86%, Yahoo (YHOO) up 4.05%, and Constellation Software (CSU.TO) up 10.11%. Losers include StanTec (STN.TO) down 3.73%, and gold (CGL.TO) down a whopping 7.59%.
The big change this month was the sale of all speculative stocks, gold and non-value stocks. As I wrote earlier this month, I am getting back to fundamental value investing.
My bond holdings are at 34.1%, which is a little more than my target of 33.5%, but acceptable. I have 36.8% cash awaiting deployment into value stocks as prices become cheaper.
