My portfolio's Total Account Value [TAV] was up +$2,036.96 or almost 1 percent (+0.99%) week-over-week to $207,253.50. But before I go into detail about it, I delve into some positive news which capped last week: 2017 Single's Day!
The 11.11 e-commerce event countered the seemingly negative news of the possible delay in the passage of the highly anticipated tax reform in the U.S.: "Wall Street Breakfast: Worries Over Tax Reform Delays," "Senate presents tax bill outline; stocks 'sold the news' earlier," "Stocks sink as Senate reportedly will delay corporate tax cut," and "WaPo: Senate GOP considering one-year delay for corporate tax cut."
Also in the news last week was U.S. President Donald Trump's visit to China: Trump stirs up U.S.-China trade. That's where the title of this blog post draws inspiration from because last week truly was a HUUUUUUUGE week for politics, commerce, and the stock market, all of which impacted and will impact my portfolio one way or another.
Single's Day Euphoria
Alibaba sells $25B worth of stuff in 1 day!
Almost 1.5 billion shoppers parted with their money on China's Single's Day, a shopping day that dwarfs sales on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
The Chinese e-commerce giant broke records and calculated $25.3 billion in sales generated from 1.48 billion shoppers via Alipay on its annual Singles' Day global shopping festival on Nov. 11, or 11/11.
Once a celebration for China’s lonely hearts, Singles’ Day has become an annual 24-hour buying frenzy that exceeds the combined sales for Black Friday and Cyber Monday in the United States, and acts as a barometer for China’s consumers.

Highlights from the sale
- First delivery arrived 12 minutes and 18 seconds after midnight
- Total mobile GMV settled through Alipay was approximately 90 percent of the total GMV, compared to 82 percent last year
- Alipay processed 1.48 billion payment transactions, up 41 percent from 2016, and processed 256,000 transactions per second at peak

“While this year’s sale day smashed last year’s records, now the new goal for Alibaba is globalization. This year’s sales event showed clearly how Alibaba’s shopping festival is gradually converging China and the rest of the world. Alibaba reported that 225 countries and regions with completed transactions.”
JD.com Singles Day Volume Jumps +50% to $19.1 Billion!
Rival Chinese e-commerce company JD.com Inc reported that its Singles' Day transaction volume hit about 127.1B yuan or $19.1 billion, up more than 50% from 2016. JD's sale ran from Nov. 1 to Nov. 11, with the final day making up by far the largest spike in sales. JD started its sales event on Nov. 1, to reduce delivery bottlenecks and give users more time to make their purchasing decisions.
Hoping for good stock price reactions in the coming week or weeks for these two Chinese e-Commerce juggernauts which currently are in my top 5 holdings by cost basis and in my top 10 by latest market value.
Holdings Weekly Value Change
Out of the 38 holdings remaining at the end of Nov. 10, 2017, 24 holdings gained more in value week-over-week, whereas 14 positions partially offset the former with their loss in value.
Furthermore, the portfolio's cost basis increased last week by $9,928.60 (7.58%) from $130,929.67 two weeks ago to $140,858.27 due to the 2nd batch of the newly infused capital now being put to work. I did not indicate the weekly change in value for the four new holdings due to being just introduced in the portfolio last week. Thus, the overall unrealized gain percentage of +47.66% two weeks ago is not directly comparable to last week's +45.77%.
What could be compared though, aside from the total account value, is the unrealized gain [UG] amount $ and its percentage difference. Two weeks ago the UG $ was +$62,397.53. That grew by +$2,070.30 WoW to +$64,467.83 by the end of last week. That's 3.32% WoW growth in UG $, excluding the minor loss in closing a position last week and the distribution received from an LP holding as well.
Newbie holdings (those initiated less than 5 months ago  and two  less than 2 years ago) led most of the gains the past week. Collectively, newbie's net unrealized gain jumped by +$1,661 or +17.02% over the previous UG gain of +$9,757.91 (+11.01%) to end last week with +$11,418.91 (+11.59%). Newbie net UG gain of +11.59% is not comparable to +11.01% WoW because the cost basis was increased substantially.
On the other hand, incumbent holdings (those initiated more than 6 years ago and are still held in the portfolio  ) also moved slightly upward adding +409.30 or +0.78% more to their previous net paper gain of +$52,639.62 (+124.42%). Hence, incumbent positions aggregately ended the past week with a net UG of +53,048.92 or +125.39%.
Weekly Top Leaders and Laggards
Leading Chinese data center operator GDS Holdings Ltd (GDS) once again jumped higher. This time it was by +17.4% week-over-week making my paper gain almost double in just under four months. My only regret is I hoped I went through with my former plan to add more before when it was still below 10, but I am content with the current gains it has produced so far.
The Walt Disney Company (DIS) also rose +6.2% WoW due to more details on its planned direct-to-consumer streaming platform for ESPN next year and for its core Disney content, namely from Disney, Pixar, Marvel and LucasFilm/StarWars, the year after. Disney also jumped early on in the week, prior to its earnings release, due to news reports surfacing about recent talks it had with Fox to buy most of the latter's entertainment content, excluding news & pubic affairs assets. Even though the report stated that the talks took place over the course of several weeks ago and allegedly have gone quiet since, the news sparked talks of possible M&A in the media industry, not only with the Fox assets. With the news surfacing, it could be possible talks between the Disney and Fox could reignite. These two pieces of news countered the fact that Disney had a terrible September 2017 quarter this year with almost all segments (not just ESPN). Excluding the Parks & Resorts segment, all segments saw revenues decline YoY during the quarter. Given the recent updates on Disney, I am considering moving it back to a SWAN or "Sleep Well At Night" position, at least relatively SWAN, and remove it from the reduce or close holdings watchlist in the portfolio.
Nutanix (NTNX) keeps rocking on as well by +5.6% last week. Two of my Chinese internet/e-commerce stocks have also performed well WoW: Tencent Holding (OTCPK:TCEHY) +5.5% and JD.com (JD) +4%. Speculative growth bets in the lithium-battery market Highpower International (HPJ) and in the nicotine-reduction & cannabis markets 22nd Century Group (XXII) also inched up relatively nice last week as well by +3.9% and +3.5%, respectively.
Newbie holdings Brookfield Infrastructure Partners (BIP), Salesforce.com (CRM), and Micron Technology (MU) as well as incumbent positions AT&T (T), PepsiCo (PEP), Mondelez International (MDLZ), and Kraft Heinz (KHC) contributed to the paper gains week-over-week by more than +2% but less than +3%.
Pattern Energy Group Inc (PEGI) was my top laggard last week declining almost -8% week-over-week due to downbeat Q3 earnings results. Bank of America (BAC) was the 2nd worst performer WoW by -4.70%. Three of my newly initiated positions last Monday were all down by more than -3% WoW: Macquarie Infrastructure (MIC) -3.56%, Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico SAB de CV (PAC) -3.53%, and MasTec Inc (MTZ) -3.07%. Other significant downward movements were made by Blackstone Group LP (BX), Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY), and Hannon Armstrong Sustainable Infrastructure Capital (HASI), all with WoW losses of more than -2% but less than -3%.

Top New Prospective Picks

Dubbed as the "Shopify of China", BZUN provides end-to-end services, including website design, development and hosting, IT infrastructure, customer service, warehousing and logistics services, as well as digital marketing.
Baozun innovatively connects brands and consumers using their deep local know-how and robust e-commerce supply chain technology and services. BZUN strives to protect and enhance brands’ images online while enabling increased engagement with consumers to drive sales and profit.

Its high-profile clients include Nike, Microsoft, Budweiser, Starbucks, Victoria’s Secret, and Calvin Klein.
BZUN has 140 brand partners in 8 categories with over RMB 3.6 billion gross merchandise volume or GMV (up 64% YoY), as of June 30, 2017. Alibaba is a key partner and investor in the company, and rates Baozun as the highest quality brand e-commerce service provider on Tmall (six stars). BZUN also helps its clients create online stores on JD.com too.

BZUN provides end-to-end e-commerce solutions with omni-channel capabilities for its brand partners, comprising the entire value chain of IT solutions, online store operations, digital marketing, customer service, warehousing, and fulfillment.

Further, the company also partners with leading logistics companies to achieve next-day delivery in 100 cities across China.
An article on Yahoo! Finance points out 5 reasons why the best is yet to come for Baozun:  the growth of Chinese e-commerce,  a defensible niche market,  an evolving business,  solid growth rates, and  reasonable forward valuations.

Enbridge, a North American large-cap dividend growth energy infrastructure stock, operates the world's longest crude oil and liquids transportation system in the U.S. and Canada, with significant natural gas gathering, transmission, and midstream businesses. As a distributor of energy, Enbridge owns and operates Canada's largest natural gas distribution company and provides distribution services in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, and New York State. As a generator of energy, ENB has interests in approximately 3,500 megawatts (MW) (2,500 MW net) of renewable and alternative energy generating capacity which is operating, secured, or under construction, and ENB continues to expand its interests in wind, solar, and geothermal power. ENB has five business segments: Liquids Pipelines; Gas Distribution; Gas Pipelines and Processing; Green Power and Transmission; and Energy Services.
Enbridge now has an industry-leading C$31 billion in secured expansion projects in execution (scheduled to come online between 2017 and 2020), plus C$48 billion of development projects. As of Sep. 2017, C$9 billion of C$12 billion in 2017 projects were in service.
ENB has a relatively low-risk business model with limited direct commodity exposure. Approximately 96% of cash flow is underpinned by long-term commercial agreements and less than 1% of cash flow has direct commodity exposure.
Enbridge now yields 5.27% with an annual dividend rate of 1.92. It has increased its dividend by 10% in early 2017. Driven by a strong pipeline of commercially secured projects, ENB anticipates dividend growth of 10%-12% each year from 2017-2024 (while maintaining a payout ratio of 50%-60% of available cash flow from operations, or ACFFO). It has a healthy 1.0X-1.2X distribution coverage ratio as well.
Earlier in the year, Enbridge completed its merger with Spectra Energy to create North America's premier energy infrastructure company with C$166 Billion enterprise value. In spite of the disappointing miss in their recent earnings report for the 3rd quarter, results showed that the Spectra deal has started to boost profits for Enbridge.
