The Twitter Top 10 Portfolio is now up 31.95% from the first Friday of the year. It rose just over 6% in the past month. The portfolio continues to significantly outperform the S&P 500 Index (SPX). SPX is up 2% since the last set of stocks were picked and up 15.14% from the first Friday of the year. Twitter Top 10 is currently doubling the performance of the general market for the year. Note: prices are from roughly 11:00 AM Pacific. I’ll update this post with final closing prices over the weekend.
UPDATE 10/5/13: prices rose a bit into the close on Friday which put the portfolio up 6.21% for the month and 32.13% on the year. I’ve updated the details below.
The out performance this month comes from three stocks, Yahoo (YHOO) which is up 23.93%, Yelp (YELP) up 16.01%, and Salesforce.com (CRM) up 9.41%. The largest decline over the past month came from LinkedIn (LNKD) which is down 3.64%.
On the first Friday of every month we issue the new stocks for the portfolio. Three stocks stayed in the portfolio from the last month. They are LinkedIn (LNKD), Yahoo (YHOO), and Yelp (YELP). It is interesting to note that LNKD spent the last month in a sideways consolidation pattern, but maintained very high sentiment readings on Twitter. We’ll have to see if this indicates a big break higher.
The new stocks in the portfolio for October are Facebook (FB), Baidu (BIDU), Priceline (PCLN), Nike (NKE), First Solar (FSLR), Molycorp (MCP), and Uni-Pixl (UNXL).
For those of you who like to dig deeper into the list or skip some of the top ten, here are the next five symbols. GRPN, WLT, CELG, DIS, SINA.
