The month of March was horrific for the Twitter Top 10 Portfolio. It is currently down 12.84% on the month…and we still have to suffer through the rest of the day. I’m sure you know the cause, but I’ll state it anyway. A breakdown in momentum names caught the March picks in its wave down. UPDATE: After the close the portfolio was down 13.2% for the month. The details have been updated below.
The new picks for April are a mix of industries which is consistent with investors rotating rather than wholesale selling. As a side note, some of the new picks for this month are being sold hard today which does not bode well for the market as a whole because it may be the start of more widespread selling. When stocks can’t maintain momentum for longer than a month it creates instability in the market which can lead to a cascade. It is just one more warning sign.
Here are the April picks.
MSFT, HIMX, GTAT, QCOM, BIDU, KNDI, F, AA, K, GMCR
Here are the next five symbols in the list.
INTC, AMD, HPQ, PBR, JASO
Below is a performance chart and details of the March holdings. Note: I’ll update the March data after the close today.
