Current Portfolio

Portfolio Comments:

The market is sinking on another week of disappointing earnings reports. High profile companies like Apple (AAPL) and (AMZN) issued cautious guidance going forward and helped sour investors enthusiasm for stocks. Now the S&P 500 is hovering above support at 1400 while the NASDAQ tries to hold technical support at its 200-dma. The Russell 2000 index broke support at 820 and is also trying to hold its 200-dma. Stocks are arguably oversold with a six-week decline but there is no guarantee of a bounce.

CVX, EMN, KMB, MON, and TWX were all stoped out.

We closed our 2013 call positions on Visa last week (Oct. 22nd).

There were no stop loss changes tonight.
