My portfolio balances at close of trading on 31st May were:
|Ticker||Price (C$)||Price Change||Percentage||Industry|
|POW.TO||$ 29.10||7.26%||6.8%||Finance, Specialty|
|FTT.TO||$ 22.66||n/a||6.7%||Industrial Services and Supplies|
|TCK-B.TO||$ 27.69||3.32%||6.5%||Basic Materials|
|DII-B.TO||$ 41.25||n/a||6.4%||Consumer Cyclical|
|IFC.TO||$ 61.35||n/a||7.1%||Finance, Insurance|
|LB.TO||$ 44.15||n/a||6.6%||Finance, Diversified|
|S&P Fund||$ 143.64||5.14%||12.9%||US Equities|
|Bond Fund||$ 225.35||-1.48%||33.3%||Bonds|
Overall my portfolio is up 1.00% since last month. There were no cash contributions. For comparison my TI Index is up 0.48%, the DOW is up 1.86% and the TSX is up 1.56%.
My investments have performed well against the TI Index, which was dragged down by gold and bond prices, but not so well against the pure equities indexes: the TSX and Dow. This is to be expected: it was a good month for equities but not for bonds.
The two value stocks that I bought last month did very well: Teck Resources (TCK-B.TO) is up 7.26% and Power Corp (POW.TO) is up 3.32%. My S&P Fund is up 5.14%. My bonds are down 1.48%.
The table above does not show the performance of stocks that were bought during the month (it only shows month-on-month performance). I bought quite a few stocks this month so I am including an additional table to analyze their performance, as follows.
|Ticker||Cost basis||Price today||Gain (Loss)|
In summary, my value stocks have gained 2.32% since buying them. Performance would have been much better were it not for a sudden downturn in the two hours of trading today, during which the TSX fell 0.5% and the Dow fell 1%. I bought Xerox (XRX) and Laurential Bank (LB.TO) today, and both are down materially!
My bond holdings are at 33.3%, which is very close to my target of 33.5%. I have 6.9% cash which I can use to add another new position if prices fall.
