  • S&P Competition: Week 7 0 comments

    Losers outnumbered winners in the seventh week, as both kennels ended up lower than they were last week. Some of the numbers may seem a bit skewed, but Q1 dividends have started coming in, and I will be entering them onto the charts as they become available.

    Here's this week's numbers:

    As you can see, both kennels are lower as a whole than they were last week, although the Dogs have really taken a significant hit - down 588 BPS to 2.43% from 8.31%. The biggest casualties among the Dogs were CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL) and Cliffs (NYSE:CLF), [each down by ~20% from last week], and Frontier (NASDAQ:FTR) down by ~ 12% from last week.

    None of the Pedigrees were hit as hard as were the Dogs, although a number of them are lower than they were last week.

    Disclosure: I am long PFE.
