Portfolio A1 Now 4.1% Ahead of SPX for Year

With four of the Portfolio A1’s five holdings – all except Odyssey Re Holdings (ORH)

posting solid gains this week, the portfolio is now up 10.8% in the five months since the February 16 inception. This compares favorably with the 6.7% return by the benchmark S&P 500 index during the same period.

I do not have much else to say about the portfolio at this juncture, other than to note that when we pass the six month mark in another five weeks, I will start rolling out some statistics and analysis with respect to trading, risk, performance of holdings after they have been sold, etc.

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

A snapshot of the portfolio is as follows:
