As the market corrects the Twitter Top 10 Portfolio is correcting at a faster rate. The under performance is almost across the board with only Cisco Systems (CSCO) holding up. The portfolio is down 8.3% from the first Friday of June, but still up 16.3% from the first Friday of the year. This is in contrast to the S&P 500 index being up 8.4% from the same date. One note to the portfolio is that we warned against Baidu (BIDU) and Celsion (CLSN) when we created the list. BIDU is down 9.24% which is near the bottom in performance so far this month and CLSN is down a full 25% which is a disaster. This is once again a reminder that you should never blindly buy any list of stocks. Below is a performance chart and details for the current holdings.

Just as we suspected when we saw the picks for the portfolio this month, a thinking person would have skipped Celsion Corp (CLSN). It is down 21.43% in just a week. This is a great example of one of the limitations of mechanical investing and the reason we try to warn about stocks we’d skip for our own portfolio. It is a good reminder for you to always think for yourself…and never follow any investment strategy blindly. Overall the portfolio is down 4.74% for the month, but it is still up 20.8% from the first Friday of the year. Below is a performance chart and details for the current holdings.

The Twitter Top 10 portfolio bounced back this week. It is now up 4.1% for the month and 27.7% for the year. The gains are a result of two big winners. 3D Systems (DDD) is up over 22% and Ford (F) is up over 15%. The losers in the portfolio are exactly what our concerns were when the list was created at the first of May. We made explicit mention about LinkedIn (LNKD) which is down 2.74%, Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) down .36%, and Coca-Cola (KO) down 4.38%. If we were using our heads instead of a mechanical system we would have avoided these picks. By skipping defensive sectors like Consumer Staples, Utilities, etc. that we felt were being sold by most market participants we would have bought the following stocks instead. Home Depot (HD) up 7.4%, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) up 12.2%, and Walt Disney (DIS) down .002%. That’s why we feel you should think for yourself rather than blindly following any investment strategy. Below is a performance chart
