Twitter Top 10 Falls With Market

140711TwitterTop10

The Twitter Top 10 portfolio fell with the market this week. Many of the momentum names fell, but Apple (AAPL), Facebook (FB), and BlackBerry (BBRY) held up. There are still a lot of good looking charts so it’ll take another week or two before we’ll know if this was simply some profit taking or the beginning of something more serious.

StockTwits Top 10 Slides

140711StockTwits10

Over the past week the StockTwits Top 10 portfolio fell sharply. The drop was a result of heavy selling in momentum stocks. It looks like traders are very quick to take profits. This should be taken as warning that market participants are still reeling from large losses in momentum names during the early months of the year. On the bright side, many of the stocks in the portfolio this month look like they’re simply consolidating after very strong runs or breaking out to new highs. Many of the charts still have very constructive patterns. Below is a performance chart and details of the current holdings.   Start Date Symbol Shares Start Price Start Total End Price End Total % Gain / Loss 7/3/2014 $TWTR 254 41.33 10497.82 38.46 9768.84 -6.94% $SCTY 147 71.34 10486.98 66.34 9751.98 -7.01% $DDD 170 61.62 10475.40 57.1 9707.00 -7.34% $MU 355 33.73 11974.15 32.77 11633.35 -2.85% $AMD 2586 4.24 10964.64 4.37 11300.82 3.07% $GMCR 83 125.24 10394.92 121.35 10072.05 -3.11% $SPWR 296 39.90 11810.40 38.44
