Portfolio Update February 2017

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 a new position in IJR, small cap ETF with only 0.07% expense ratio. I chose this instead of a competitor SCHA with a lower 0.05% expense ratio, because IJR's average market cap is lower, about half that of SCHA or VB. It is difficult to pick small cap stocks individually, as I learnt painfully, so I have decided to get my small cap exposure mainly through a low cost small cap index fund, and IJR is currently the best of the bunch. Starting this month, I will buy about $500 worth of IJR every month.


I added to my positions in RL, VFC, GILD, MAT, FOSL near 52-week low. These are reasonable sound stocks that are beaten down, hopefully temporarily.

The market went up strongly this month, I initially sold short equal amounts of FAS (3x financials bull) and FAZ (3x financials bear) to take advantage of the time decay from these leveraged ETFs, but now FAS is up 60% and is a much bigger short position than FAZ, down 50%. I could not stand the pain much longer and decided to cover my position in FAS, as this market seems to be in a secular bull trend with no end in sight. I lost almost $2000 in this position. Lesson learn: market goes up more than it goes down: short leveraged bear ETFs only and leave bull ETFs alone!

Sales
To cover the FAS position, I shorted more TZA, 3x small cap bear. APOL is closed out due to completion of cash buy-out.

My net worth increased 2.75% to $926,577.75, due to investment gains (2.09%) and net cash inflows (0.65%).

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


2017My Portfolio ReturnS & P 500 TR
Jan2.39%1.90%Good
Feb2.08%3.97%Bad
YTD4.52%5.95%Bad

January started off good, but then February saw US large cap stocks going up strongly and I ended up trailing by almost 2 percent. YTD I am now trailing by 1.43%. The S&P is already up 6% for the year in just the first two months. I did not think 2017 was going to be a strong year for stocks, but it is now shaping to be the case. Let's see what the upcoming months will bring.

That is quite the collection of stocks that you have. That look like fun managing that. ☺
