Portfolio Update (May 2015)

Investor Monkey - Portfolio

The month of May was a pretty exciting one for me as my US portfolio made a new high, closing at 13.53% YTD gain on the last day of the month. This is a good news, and also a bad one, as I might have to sell all the shares on hand as I will need the money for something else soon.

Good news is that overall both portfolios have positive gains since I first started. Bad news? Well, the US portfolio is making good progress and I will have to close all positions, even when I foresee that there is potential for it to move higher.

Well, I will just have to save up quickly and hopefully have enough cash to start my investment by the end of the year. Looking forward, I will likely be concentrating on just the US portfolio and working on building a portfolio of income stocks.

While I work hard on my savings, my investment journey will not stop here. I have been tasked to help build an income portfolio over at TradingCommand. We have hand-picked some stocks to build two portfolios, Growth Stocks and Income Stocks. Do hop over at times and see what stocks we have picked for the two portfolios.
