Overall my portfolio is up 4.24% since last month. Excluding cash contributions the portfolio is up 1.50%.  For comparison my TI Index is up 3.41%, the DOW is up 2.75% and the TSX is up 4.49%.

My investments are up but they performed poorly against the TI Index, the TSX, and the DOW.

Winners this month include Power Corp (POW.TO) which is up 5.34%, Dorel (DII-B.TO) up 3.89%, Laurentian Bank (LB.TO) up 4.09%, my S&P fund up 6,13%, and Intact Insurance (IFC.TO) up 5.33%.

There were no losers.

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

Average 3.39% 5.79%

In summary, my value stocks are up 5.79% since purchase, and up 3.39% this month.

I am in the process of moving my S&P fund and my Bond fund to my TD Direct account. In the interim those finds are parked in a money market fund.  I will restore my bond holdings once the transfer is complete.  I have 17.1% cash which I can use to add new positions if prices fall.
