Portfolio A1 to Best SPX By 20% in 2007

On the heels of a strong fourth quarter, it looks as if Portfolio A1 will finish 2007 with at least a 20% advantage over the benchmark S&P 500 index since the portfolio’s February 16th inception. With one trading day left in the year, Portfolio A1 has a 23.4% gain, a full 21.8% better than the 1.6% gain in the SPX during this period.

I will publish some additional statistics once 2007 is in the books, but suffice it to say with the likes of MOS, DRYS, TEX, PBR, RIO and others in the portfolio over the past 10 ½ months, we have been fishing in very rich waters.

In addition to the usual equity curve and summary information, I have added a list of positions that were closed out during the year.

There no changes to the portfolio this week.

A snapshot of the portfolio is as follows:
