Equity Portfolio Activity for the week ended April 1, 2016

Equity Portfolio as of April 1, 2016


Commentary:  I have been very passive these past couple of weeks.  Minimal buying and selling of equities fairly characterizes my activity.  Market fundamentals discourage me from new long positions, while technical indicators point to an overbought market with a slightly improving economic backdrop.  There are equities I want to buy now, but I feel I must wait for a better entry point, which becomes frustrating as the prices continue to advance higher.  Patience is my “Safe” word right now.

Good Luck and have a great week!
