Overall my portfolio is up 3.00% since last month. Excluding cash contributions the portfolio is up 1.14%.  For comparison my TI Index is up 0.62%, the DOW is up 3.05% and the TSX is up 1.69%.

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

Winners this month include Teck Resources (TCK-B.TO) which is up 7.98%, Dorel (DII-B.TO) up 8.44%, and Intact Financial (IFC.TO) up 3.20%. (Note: I sold Teck and Intact a few days ago due in part to these advances.)

There were no losers.  Performance was diluted by the large cash position I am holding pending transfer*.

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

In summary, my value stocks are up 7.05% since purchase, and up 2.34% this month.

*I am still in the process of moving money to my TD Direct account.  These funds are currently in transit as cash.  I will use these funds to restore my bond holdings once the transfer is complete.  In addition to those funds have 28% cash which I can use to add new positions as prices fall.

Selling Power Corp

Power Corporation (POW.TO) is another stock that no longer meets my screening criteria.  This is because it’s price has risen so much that it is no longer good value.  This is good – I made a big profit!

  • Sell POW.TO @ $32.10

I originally bought Power Corp for $26.20 back on 25th April 2013.  During my period of ownership the stock paid three dividends each 29c.  The total gain was therefore $6.77 per share.  This is a gain of 25.8% in 8 months.  A good call.
