Twitter Top 10 Follows Market Down

The Twitter Top 10 portfolio is down 2.91% since the new picks last week. This is slightly worse performance than the S&P 500 Index (SPX) which is down about 2.4%.  The under performance is mostly a result of Kandi Technologies (KNDI) which is down nearly 12%. Six of the stocks in the portfolio are performing better than SPX as the portfolio rotated to larger cap stocks when momentum stocks failed.

April Picks for Twitter Top 10 Portfolio

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.
