Update No. 190 – 21/11/14

A savage 2.74% drop in our benchmark this week. Fortunately, we only felt roughly half that with a 1.38% drop. We dipped into negative territory for the first time since the July 1 beginning of FY2015, but I remain very positive about the long-term prospects of our holdings and convinced value is building like a coiled spring waiting only on the right circumstances to materialise.

I have been busy with buying and selling this week, hopefully constructing a portfolio just a little better. Removing a little risk and adding a little return, little by little setting up for gains, all the while not really certain when they will come.

I will talk next week about the biggest mistake I have made this year (so far). I tried to rectify it somewhat this week, but it still pains me somewhat to think about it, so I will give a week to try to make a well-reasoned confession – Tony Hansen 21/11/2014
