January is behind us, time to check in on my portfolio.
Last month I did not make any new purchases. In fact, I sold half of my position (15 shares) in Caterpillar (CAT).
This earnings season has provided some wild stock gyrations and I hope to be able to grab some new stocks in February.
Volatility is up again, and several stocks on my watch list are approaching ‘buy territory’ again. For instance the Utilities Sector – a sector I am under invested in – is showing some attractive stocks at the moment.
Sticking to the past month – how did my portfolio progress in January?
For reasons of comparison: a year ago, at the end of January 2017, my portfolio consisted of 38 positions with a total value of $66,454.
At the end of January 2018 my portfolio consisted of 49 positions with a total market value of $119,545, a Year-on-Year (YoY) increase of 80%.
