I can’t remember the last time that all of my stocks were up. 28 of them were up by more than 1%. If anyone would like to track the performance of my broad market portfolio, I have it listed at Stockpickr.com. Two notes though, at present I am running with 8% cash, and Allstate and the Japan Smaller Capitalization fund are roughly 1.5x the size of the largely equal-weighted portfolio. Today, the portfolio continued to beat the S&P 500, returning roughly 1.9%. Leading the charge were Fresh Del Monte (what a move over the last month), Barclays plc, Royal Bank of Scotland, SABESP (wish it had gone down more, would have bought a bunch), and Deerfield Triarc. Deerfield Triarc pointed out that as a mortgage REIT, they had minimal exposure to subprime mortgages. No surprise to me, but in this environment, everyone is suspect. Nice yield of around 10%.
As for my project of the week, I have all of my tickers contending to be in my portfolio, and I will share them with you here:

The next two tasks are calculating the industry ranks from two different models, and setting up the spreadsheet so that I can compare companies against one another. That’s for tomorrow and Thursday.
