From 2011, The Stock Trading Advisor (OTC:TSTA) will come up with a month performance presentation for our readers. This presentation should give everyone a clearer picture of our stock performance comparing to major indices on a month-to-month basis. There is expected discrepancies in the initial stage mainly due to counters which I held before I started blogging, and a little confusion to the gains as I marked to market all prices.
TSTA is up 1.80% for the month of January 2011, mainly due to the untimely announcement of Steve Jobs medical leave. We underperformed comparing toS&P500 (SPX 1329.15 ↑0.55%) which was up 2.27%. Asia market didn’t do too well last month with Singapore’s FTSE-ST down 0.98% and Hang Seng (HSI 22828.92↑0.53%) up merely 1.35%.
- Apple Inc up 0.51%
- Las Vegas Sands up 1.04%
- Citigroup up 1.02%
- Genting SP down 7.76%
We’ve closed 2 positions in the month of January : Ezra Holdings with a Jan profit of 1.31% and SJM Holdings with a Jan profit of 9.09%.
We’ve added positions to AAPL at an average price of $345 and LVS at an average price of $44.90 within the last month. TSTA has now the biggest exposure to both AAPL and LVS, with both these counters making approximately 80% of our current portfolio.
