|Includes: Alaska Air Group, Inc. (ALK), BHP, C, CAT, GD, PCXCQ, PNC, WMT

Well its been two weeks since I published my first article on the theory of investing using the principles of Sun Tzu, and attached below is the summary of the portfolio wrap at the end of week two.

Portfolio Wrap, 28 October 2011

Key Changes and Portfolio Progress

Over week 2 the portfolio has gained $7,948 (8.12%). Last weeks biggest loser was my favorite blue chip, BHP - though this week it has gained $8.08 per share (10.8%). Another big gain this week is CAT, my other sentimental favorite, up by $9.41 (10.76%) off the back of solid numbers for Q3 reporting. The two other big gainers are C up $3.84 (12.65%) and the biggest gain is my wildcard PCX up $3.46 (or a whopping 34.95%).


Overall I am happy with the portfolios performance, in line with my philosophy for good long term positions. Noting I am still carrying $5,028 cash, this gives a closing balance of $111,000 for the portfolio.

For those following the series, I plan on submitting an article to Seeking Alpha at the one month mark, which will follow Sun Tzu's second chapter - 'Waging War'. Keep following me on Seeking Alpha to see the subsequent articles and the regular portfolio updates.
