Portfolio Update August 2015

The time has come for my monthly portfolio update. At the end of every month, I will update my portfolio and comment on any changes. I do that for accountability and also so you may glean some ideas on how I allocate my capital. You have the opportunity to learn from what I do well, so you can do the same, as well as what I do poorly, so you will not have to repeat my mistakes.

$9,238.18
2.20%
Net cash inflow was $9238.18 during this period. Factoring out the cash inflow, my portfolio returned -5.20% in August.

Purchases
I continued to pour money into stocks this month, to reduce my excess cash and take advantage of a small correction. Emerging market, oil stocks, and commodity stocks have dropped the most, so I focused most of my buying there.

Sales
None.
