My Investment Holdings – January 2011
Back in March of this year I listed my top 15 investments for the first time. I figured this time around I might as well list my entire portfolio and what percentage of the portfolio each investment takes up. I figure this might be useful for me to look back on in the future and occasionally I will get a comment or an email asking what I am invested in (especially since I have been beating the market lately)
A couple comments about what’s happened since I put out my last list. #1 Netflix completely exploded. It became my first 10 bagger and despite the recent pullback and me selling $2400 worth of stock when it hit $200 a share it is still my largest individual stock investment despite me only putting $1000 into the stock.
The second thing would be that I sold some of my stocks and have 4.59% of my retirement nestegg in cash trying to time the market kind of. Because the market has been on such an incredible tare and because some of my stocks like Netflix have very lofty PEs and because I am not planning on putting a boatload of new money into the market until we figure out what we are doing with the house I thought it would be to sell small portions of some of the stocks that really ran up so I would have some money on the sidelines to take advantage of a stock market pullback should one occur. So far this has been a really bad decision and of the stocks I have sold only Netflix has pulled back – the rest have continued their journey upward. I am not too concerned about this as even in the case of Netflix I sold only 1/4th of my position and overall this cash on the sidelines is not hurting me too much. Whether or not I will be able to redeploy it at better values will be a learning lesson for me.
Anyway here is the list 57 total investments, 4 mutual funds, 52 stocks, and a cash position.
