At the end of November 2014, my portfolio stood at $80,969.64 across all my accounts combined. Comparing to my portfolio balance of $75,005.18 at the end of October, this represents an increase of $5,964.46 for the month of November which represents a 7.95% increase for the month.
Of the increase, new investments accounted for $2,581.00, thereby giving a net portfolio increase of $3,383.46 or 4.51% for the month.
I purchased COP at the beginning of the month. I also continued my weekly sharebuilder purchases through which I invested $1,200 in AFL, DIS, PEP, JNJ and WMT. The oil sector has been week during the last several weeks and I used it as an opportunity to add to my COP position in November. The oil sector continues to be weak and I plan to add more to this sector if possible in the next few days.
Here is a graph showing the growth of my portfolio since 2009. As always, it is satisfying to see the graphs going higher each month/year. It reinforces the fact that I am making progress towards my goals.
Disclosure: Long on all stocks mentioned above.
