I took some positive feedback from a fellow investor bindexit from CB Forums on including a Current Holdings section to my blog. I chose to include both the Healthcare Fund & Dividend Growth Fund with my Top 10 & Top 5 positions – with Current Favourites including only names in the Value Portfolio.
Although some might be disappointed to learn that the Value Portfolio will not be included in this up-to-date component of the blog, rest assured I will continue to include some of my Top Value Picks in the Current Favourites section. Only a few short weeks ago I would have gladly entertained the idea of including these names in that list, but since I posted my YTD return on the portfolio in September, I’ve received both positive & negative attention to that post. I have not removed it, but I am certainly more cautious with the attention that stating returns can have in the blogsphere community.
I will state again that as per my disclaimer I am not here to benefit from anything other than sharing my thoughts, opinions, ideas, teachings and perspectives on a various range of investing topics. I do not professionally manage funds, nor would I ever be interested in doing so for strangers in the near future. I invest on behalf of select individuals who I consider family & close friends, but for the most part investing is a hobby I enjoy and I have no ambition of gaining any sort of compensation from my experience & knowledge. I will continue to provide insight, advice and a common sense approach to investing when asked.
