Current Portfolio

Portfolio Comments:

The market held up very well in spite of a terrible December jobs report of only +74,000 jobs. The volatility index (VIX) is low and we're about to hit earnings season. Those two factors could spell trouble but the market's momentum is still higher.

Last week our plan was to exit our SBUX trade on Monday, January 6th. We also closed the 2014 calls for AIG and DG.

This week I am suggesting we exit our MGM and VRSN trades on Monday, January 13th.

I have updated stop losses on: AVGO, COF, DG, HFC, HOG, HP, LVLT, MSI, MTW, WDC.
