It was a good week for the Real Money portfolio. Unfortunately, we didn’t do much to close the gap that has been created over the past few weeks versus the S&P 500. For the week, the Real Money portfolio was up 1.7% v. 1.6% for the S&P 500. Three buys were made this week bringing the total allocation up to 80% stocks (CEF – 30%, PCU – 20%, RIO – 20% , BHP – 10%) and 20% cash.
A little upward momentum would be welcomed in the first part of the week. That would enable me to move the stops up to break-even on these trades.
