Portfolio Update – Up 2.23% in July 2013

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

Ticker Price (C$) Price Change Percentage Industry
POW.TO $ 29.53 4.64% 6.9% Finance, Specialty
FTT.TO $ 22.10 2.08% 6.6% Industrial Services and Supplies
TCK-B.TO $ 24.06 7.08% 6.6% Basic Materials
DII-B.TO $ 37.59 2.43% 6.4% Consumer Cyclical
IFC.TO $ 60.41 1.96% 7.0% Finance, Insurance
LB.TO $ 45.05 2.53% 6.8% Finance, Diversified
XRX $ 9.97 4.49% 0.0% Technology
S&P Fund $ 148.10 2.40% 13.4% US Equities
Bond Fund $ 221.09 0.17% 32.8% Bonds
Cash 13.4% Cash
Total 100.0%

Overall my portfolio is up 2.23% since last month.  There were no cash contributions. For comparison my TI Index is up 3.33%, the DOW is up 3.96% and the TSX is up 2.95%.

Although my investments are up modestly, they performed poorly against the TI Index, DOW and TSX, which are all up markedly.

Winners this month include Xerox (XRX) which is up 4.49% (and which I sold during the month at an even higher price), Power Corp (POW.TO) up 4.64%, and Teck Resources (TCK-B.TO) up 7.08%.

There are no real losers.  Bonds are flat.

Let’s take a look at my value stock portfolio.

Ticker Cost Basis 6/28/2013 Price Now Gain This Month Gain – Total
TCK.B $27.03 $22.47 $24.06 7.08% -10.99%
POW.TO $26.20 $28.22 $29.53 4.64% 12.71%
IFC.TO $58.60 $59.25 $60.41 1.96% 3.09%
LB.TO $44.30 $43.94 $45.05 2.53% 1.69%
FTT.TO $22.89 $21.65 $22.10 2.08% -3.45%
XRX $8.90 $9.07 $9.80 8.05% 10.11%
DII.B $41.01 $36.70 $37.59 2.43% -8.34%
Average 4.11% 0.69%

In summary, my value stocks are up 0.69% since purchase, and up 4.11% this month. This montly gain is greater than the TSX and the DOW, which is pleasing.

My bond holdings are at 32.8%, which is close to my target of 33.5% so no rebalancing is required.  I have 13.4% cash which I can use to add new positions if prices fall.
