Portfolio Commentary

Rough week for our Equities portfolio as idiosyncratic moves in individual stocks led to our underperformance this week. While our medium-term portfolio is on course to have the 2nd monthly underperformance vs SPX this year, we have no doubt we will be back on track and continue to consistently outperform over the long run. Our signal put on a long position in TWX, which is not to do with the buyout news but rather the price action indicates further gains are likely. Over the weekend, it is reported that AT&T’s buyout price is as much as $107.50 per share, which absent the deal falling apart, TWX’s share likely converges to the buyout price in the near future.

Certainly there is also substantial downside risk if the deal falls apart, but as our portfolio is well diversified, we are comfortable taking the position. Subscribers are advised to be cognizant of the risk and adjust their trading size accordingly. We also went long SWN, one of our favorite names this year, as it plunged back to an area our signal believes is a good opportunity to dip our toes back in.

We are generally pleased with the performance of our ETFs, Futures and FX portfolios, as our signals are largely in the green. We exited XLF for a 3% gain on Friday in our Medium-Term portfolio, and most of our active positions are performing except in IBB where we had an ill-timed entry last month.
