Freeport-McMoRan Hits Stop Loss

This is an update to our latest model portfolio report, 23 Stocks for February 2016.

Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc. (NYSE:FCX) hit a stop loss in our theoretical Core Short Model portfolio today and will be assumed closed at the end of trading tomorrow. The stock is up 38.48% MTD for the equivalent short sale loss.

Our Core and Opportunistic Long/Short Model theoretical portfolios are up 6.54% and 9.45%, respectively, for the MTD.

The Opportunistic model is benefiting from a rebound in long positions after locking locking in a short sale gain on February 8, when it the short model assumed a 100% cash position just prior to the close that day.
