Portfolio A1 Continues to Rally Behind NTY

Buoyed by rumors that the company may be up for sale, shares of NTY rallied 4.8% this week, helping to propel Portfolio A1’s cumulative performance to 2.4% better than the benchmark S&P 500 index. This week’s strong performance means that all five holdings are now in the black, with TEX’s 7.8% return leading the way. Details of the recent performance of the holdings are as follows:




Once again, there are no changes to the portfolio for the coming week.

A snapshot of the portfolio is as follows:



(In other portfolio news, I am pleased to report that I am now #3158 in the CNBC Million Dollar Portfolio Challenge. While I am happy that my 29% return puts me in the top 1%, the last I checked the top 10 contestants were all sporting returns of better than 100%, meaning that it will likely take a return of 200% or more to be among the top ten finalists on May 14th. I have already resorted to a one stock ‘portfolio’ and expect to be increasing my volatility and taking substantially more risk in the coming week.)

I just noticed that over the weekend I hit two important milestones: 10,000 visitors and 100 links.

Thanks to all who have contributed to this space in one way or another.
