Portfolio and Net Worth Update August 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.

Purchases
This month, I initiated 8 new positions and added significant amounts to a handful of others, most of which are attractively priced stocks near 52-week low with low dividend payout. Total bought this month amounted to $39,100.11. I still have about $41,000 cash left in my brokerage accounts, so I will likely stay busy buying stocks for the upcoming month.


Sales
I sold a few more low-quality stocks that no longer fit well with my investment strategy. Some of the other sales are for partial shares sold consequent of the ACAT process. 

Portfolio turnover was 4.92% in August, down from all-time high of 7.27% last month, but remains high.

Here is how my assets, liabilities, and net worth have changed over the past month:

I'm happy to be at twice the market return 8 months into the year, with 4 months left to go. Will this outperformance last through this year? Only time will tell! Stay tuned!
