Review of Defensive Low PE Portfolio

This portfolio is made up of the 15 defensive stocks that are trading at the lowest PE Ratio.  The first week of each month we will review the list, and make any trades necessary to get the portfolio to match the list.  Every week we will examine the portfolio’s performance against the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average, and reinvest any dividends.  The list of defensive stocks is made by following modernized Benjamin Graham strategies, and PE Ratio is calculated using an average of the previous 5 years’ earnings per share (EPS).

There were no transactions this week.  Last week we rebalanced the portfolio and made a couple transactions.

This portfolio outperformed the Dow and S&P 500 indexes this week, and has significantly outperformed them overall.

The current value is calculated using prices near close from Thursday.
