Updown Performance : March and April

Practice invest

My Updown account was up 7% in March 2010 while the S&P 500 was up 5.8% so that month I beat the index by 1.2%.    For April I'm UP 2.7% and by comparison the S&P 500 was up 3.2% so I got beat by the index by 0.5%.

For 2010 I'm up about 11% which is 3% better than the S&P 500.

Since starting in March 2008 I'm up 13.7% while the S&P 500 is down 9.2% in that timeframe.

In March I sold GE, HOG and WMT to cash in profits.   I sold my FRE and AIG holding at $1.39 and $29.58 which I'd bought to speculate.   I'd bought them at $1.15 and $26.44 so made a decent short term profit on both of them.
In April I sold off positions in HOG, HRP, GRT to take profits and I dumped my holdings of GE.  I bought some MRK, PFE, KO, SB and WDC.
