Review of Jon’s Portfolio

This portfolio started with $100,000 with $10 commission’s per trade. The structure follows Benjamin Graham’s approach of value investing. Taxes are ignored, and cash does not earn interest for ease of calculation.

This week I purchased two securities for my portfolio. I purchased Microsoft (MSFT) for $28.44 buying 200 shares for a total price including commission of $5,698.00. I also purchased Staples (SPLS) for $26.47 buying 200 shares for a total price including commission of $5,304.00. I feel both of these stocks will correlate nicely with the rest of the portfolio.

The portfolio performed modestly, in comparison to the market with Sanderson Farms loosing ground. I still have some cash remaining in my portfolio and am seeking actively to be fully invested in the near future. When the market is in a more favorable position I will purchase more and believe see my portfolio gain further.
