Care to elaborate on why you are long on each of your holdings?
Also , 5 holdings = 20% allocation per holding, this is pretty highly concentrated. Why are you so concentrated?
Hi David – i just got started on this project and I plan to elaborate on each of my holdings, as well as further diversify in the coming weeks.
As for the number of holdings, I think that eventually my portfolio will have somewhere around 15 positions… maybe a few more, maybe a few less. I will detail my reasons for this in my next post.
Thanks for commenting – to tell the truth, i’m kind of surprised that you found the site so soon – i have just barely gotten started…. over the coming weeks and months i hope to add some value add content.
interesting site. i applaud your approach because airing out your positive and negative decisions is important when investing. helps us deal with ego problems.
how do you screen to reduce the investable universe?
btw, i found your site because i’m a big fan of greenwald’s approach to investing.
i have a variety of screens, but part of the point of this blog is to help me focus and develop my style in such a way so that i can concisely answer the question you asked. its still a work in progress. so far i haven’t been as focused as i would like, but i typically keep an eye out for negative news, the 52 week lows, analyst downgrades and the like. Recently i have started focusing more on businesses i like regardless of the price with hopes that some day the price comes down.
