Portfolio Update March 2016

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 $3,892.82 during this period. Factoring out the cash inflow, my portfolio returned 3.99% in March.

Purchases
This month, I added to my positions in VIAB, NSC, and AFL, which were relatively cheap. Most of the other purchases are part of my monthly DSPP/loyal3 investment plan, or dividend reinvestment.


Turnover was 0.51% in March. 

Sales
BG and POM were liquidated as they were acquired by cash. I suffered a modest loss on BG because I bought most of it after announcement of the acquisition by RDS.B, when RDS.B was worth more and GBP/USD was also worth more. It is probably not a good idea to buy an unhedged position in a stock right after a merger announcement; you get little upside and lots of downside.
