Portfolio A1 Likes Tesoro

It has been interesting to watch the Portfolio A1 stock ranking system search for a fifth a final holding for this portfolio. This week Enersis (ENI) has been dropped after drifting sideways for a week, to be replaced by Tesoro (TSO). In this instance, the change is more the result of Tesoro’s rising star than a particular dissatisfaction with Enersis: from mid-January to the end of April, Tesoro has more than doubled. Still, a May 3rd earnings report failed to impress and appeared to stall the stock, yet gives the portfolio a chance to buy Tesoro in during what may turn out to be just a pause. I would love to see some stability in the holdings and I think TSO’s prospects are probably a little better than predecessors ENI, WCG (which looks to be recovering), NTY and PCCC.

In the bigger picture, the portfolio maintains its 4.5% cushion over the S&P 500, with a 7.9% gain since the February 16, 2007 inception.

There are no other changes to the portfolio for the coming week.

A snapshot of the portfolio is as follows:
