  • Dogging The Market: Week 46 0 comments
    Nov 18, 2013 12:48 PM

    We are headed for the home stretch, and things look to be looking up, at least in general. Everyone is up this week (in general, although there are plenty of companies still losing).

    The Dow:

    The PIC portfolio is dragging behind the Dogs, and is even trailing the DJIA. The Dogs are holding their own quite nicely, even though Chevron (NYSE:CVX) is still in the negative (in the Dog portfolio). IBM (NYSE:IBM) is in the red for the PIC, and it's not clear that's going to change any time soon.

    The S&P 500:

    It seems like Pitney Bowes (NYSE:PBI) and R.R. Donnelley and Sons (NASDAQ:RRD) are playing some weird kind of swap game, as one company's performance jumps over 100% with the other company drops below 100%. Question: which one will leap-frog the other at the end of the year? Can they both become two-baggers? Other than that, nothing is going on much here.
