This is my imaginary securities portfolio for the up down portfolio site. Most securities take up less than ten percent of the contest portfolio. The exception is SQQQ which stands around 20% of the portfolio.
ABV Beer companies tend to be rock solid and this one also benefits from growth in Brazil.
BTI Cigarette companies are some of the most profitable and hardest to bring down around.
CEO One of the few oil majors that has a real chance to grow reserves and also benefits from growth in China.
CHD Owns vital consumer brands.
CNI Rail benefits from shifting and uplifting fundamentals.
CNY Just a place to store cash. Rather own the Yuan than US dollar.
DTV Good cashflow growth.
EGPT This one is reactionary. Egypt’s market has been beaten up bad.
GSH Same reasons as for CNI plus it benefits from growth in China.
GSI A short. An inferior steel company to Posco. Less capital and scale. Acts as counterweight.
HOKU A short. Has bad cashflow. Counterweights big energy bets.
ICO Good cashflow growth.
ONP A short. Questionable if numbers are real.
PAL A short. Counterweights pall.
PALL Scientific advances working in favor of palladium.
PDO Conservative management. Lots of cash on balance sheet.
PKX One of the best steel makers around.
PM Same reasons as those for BTI.
RJI Commodities bull market going on. This is based on one of the best commodities’ indexes around.
SQQQ I think the market is choppy and could be headed down hard.
SU Oil sands are going to be one of the last places to turn.
TEVA Strong cashflow.
USO A short. Has mechanical issues. Tracks oil poorly and suffers from front running. Counterweights the oils.
