Portfolio Update November 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.

$8,168.242.18%
Net cash inflow was $8,168.24 during this period. Factoring out the cash inflow, my portfolio returned -4.35% in October.

Purchases
This is another month with heavy activity for me. I added to position in Walmart, Exelon, and IBM


I initiated new position in Cigna to as merger arbitrage bet. I initiated new position in Atwood which seems cheap after a dividend cut. I initiated new position in Joy Global which is too cheap to ignore. 

I initiated position in South Jersey Industries as a new member of my monthly DSPP. It is a conservative stock offering discount on new purchase and dividend reinvestment, so I find it hard to refuse. 

Four Corner Property Trust is a spinoff from Darden and Hewlett Packard Enterprise is a spinoff from Hewlett Packard Inc.

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



Sales
Acquisition of Hudson City Bancorp was completed and I exited the position with a small gain. 

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

YTD-13.71%-0.20%
I am trailing the index by 13.51% YTD. This is looking like a losing year for me.
Turnover was 2.18% in November, relatively high due to heavy cash deployment.

What do you think about my portfolio? Thanks for reading.
