Portfolio Update October 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.

Net cash inflow was $11,884.00 during this period. Factoring out the cash inflow, my portfolio returned 1.54% in October.

Purchases
I added significant amount of money into stocks this month to reduce the cash from my annual bonus. I added to position in Walmart, Emerson Electric, and Exxon Mobil, Berkshire Hathaway, and Norfolk Southern, all of which are wide moat, high quality, part of my monthly investment plan and selling at low valuations and near 52 week lows. 

I also added to my positions in IBM, EV Energy, Partners, Kohl's, Mattel, Viacom, and Valmont, which were selling near 52-week lows. With the exception of IBM, which is high quality, these are higher risk speculations with low valuations.

I initiated position in Rite-Aid at $8.00, after Walgreens announced acquisition in cash for $9.00 per share. See this for more details. This is a 12.50% arbitrage. If the deal closes within a year, that is an acceptable return.

The rest of my purchases are either part of my monthly investment plan, or dividend reinvestment.

Sales
I sold out positions in Phillip Morris (high valuation at 52-week high) and in Pharol (tax loss harvesting). I should now have maxed out the 3000 capital loss limit for the year.

My monthly performance against the S & P 500 is shown below:
