My goal is to communicate long-term investing ideas that achieve superior returns for investors. I use thorough, bottom-to-top analysis that will result in very few ideas, but that's the way I believe it should be. If you have 10 stocks that you want to buy everyday, you can be sure at least 5... More

  • Buys: APOL, ARCC, ATVI, BRK.B, TAP 1 comment
    Mar 21, 2012 1:29 PM | about stocks: APOL, ARCC, ATVI, BRK.B, TAP

    Today I will start allocating some cash, approximately 9% of it. The market has really run up, but much of the momentum has been justified since we've come from such a volatile environment. I feel comfortable investing at this point, knowing that this is a smaller portion of the portfolio and I have plenty of cash to allocate if better opportunities come forward. At the same time, these stocks all look promising to me at these prices, approximately 9:55am, 03/21/2012.

    APOL 400 shares $43.13/sh
    ARCC 1000 shares $16.27/sh
    ATVI 1000 shares $12.50/sh
    BRK.B 300 shares $81.12/sh
    TAP 500 shares $43.00/sh

    Cash spent: $91,858.00

    *sidenote* For simplicity's sake I will not generate any interest from cash in the portfolio, will not charge any transaction costs, and will not charge a management fee. Also I won't bother with limit trades and will take what the market is offering at the time.

    Current Portfolio:
    APOL 400 shares
    ARCC 1000 shares
    ATVI 1000 shares
    BRK.B 300 shares
    TAP 500 shares
    $908,142.00 Cash

    Disclosure: I am long APOL, ARCC, ATVI, BRK.B, TAP.

    Additional disclosure: This post is in relation to a paper-traded investment and does not reflect actual market activity.

    I agree on the APOL buy. My Stock Analysis tonight gave it a very high score. However, with earnings tomorrow, I am afraid my models may not be as accurate..
