Travis’ Real Money Portfolio

Last Update February 17, 2017

Following are the stocks that I currently hold in my personal portfolio, which is the “real money” portfolio that I largely focus on when writing for the Irregulars.

This is for your information only (these are definitely not recommendations that I suggest you buy, just a look into my live real-money portfolio).

This spreadsheet will be updated monthly, though articles will note when positions are added (or otherwise changed in a meaningful way) in between updates. You can also review the list of recent commentary I’ve posted about personal portfolio positions (including buy and sell notes) here. Names of investments link to past articles. This represents individual equity investments I currently own, but does not include investments in diversified funds of various kinds (roughly half of my stock and bond investments are in funds), and there’s very little chance that this particular portfolio by itself would be appropriate for another investor. Positions smaller than a tenth of a percent are not listed.

The return calculations (gain/loss percent) are not annualized, those are total simple returns, and include dividends only if those dividends were reinvested (as they almost always are in my accounts). Some positions have been built up over many, many years, and I have not detailed each transaction — only the first purchase and the overall average cost basis per share are included to provide some perspective. Sales are noted at the bottom beginning with the creation of this Real Money Portfolio reporting system in February 2017.

I do not currently have any short exposure. I occasionally do covered call selling on some of the positions in my portfolio. Short positions of any meaningful size or with long-term intent will be disclosed here if I open them, and any long or short exposure to a company is, of course, disclosed in any article if a position in a stock (or similar exposure — options, warrants, bonds, etc.) is held at the time the article is published.
