Portfolio Adds PCU and PNCL, Drops ORH and PBR

In yet another reminder that this type of portfolio is not aimed at the buy and hold investor, Portfolio A1 has decided to drop Odyssey Re Holdings (ORH) and Petroleo Brasileiro (PBR) and replace them with high flying Southern Copper (PCU) and Pinnacle Airlines (PNCL), a regional airline whose traffic is up 11.2% so far this year.

Technical and fundamental factors were both in play for this particular portfolio reshuffling. It was the technical performance (down 8.7% in the four weeks it was in the portfolio) of Odyssey that was its undoing, while PBR suffered from a slight downtick in some fundamental metrics that more than offset a 6.2% gain in the two weeks it has been in the portfolio.

These two changes bump the annual turnover rate in this portfolio up to 415% and send us back to the drawing board to find three stocks that can match the performance and continued promise of stalwarts Terex (TEX) and Amkor Technology (AMKR).

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

A snapshot of the portfolio is as follows:
