No change in Portfolio for the coming week

We could not find any stock that we think are better than the current stocks we have in our portfolio. This does not mean that other stocks that are not in our list will not perform better. Actually, you will find many stocks that perform better than some of the stocks we have. But, for our portfolio, based on the methodology I use, what we have are the best stocks.

Portfolio Value April 7, 2017

Performance of the portfolio since started stands at 1.61%. S&P 500 performance during this time is 1.13%. Nothing to boast about at this stage since only 2 weeks passed since the portfolio was established. As I mentioned in my previous post, the portfolio I created last year performed way way better than S&P 500.

S&P 500 Beating Portfolio

I have tracked the portfolio I created in the past. The performance of one of the portfolios I tracked is shown below. I stopped tracking this portfolio at the end of July and started a new one with the same methodology I use. When I did some analysis on how much better this portfolio would have performed if I continued to apply my methodology, I concluded that at least an additional 9% improvement would have happened. Performance of S&P 500 between April 6, 2016 and today is shown as 15.25%. My model portfolio performance is 30.67% as shown below. Had I continued the application of my methodology in adjusting the stocks, it would have gone to 39.5% and beyond. Hopefully, I will find enough time to track the portfolio continuously.
