Updown Performance : August up 0.1%

Practice invest

My Updown account was up 0.1% in August 2010 but  the S&P 500 was down 3.4%.   I beat the S&P 500 by 3.5% this month.

In 2010 I'm up 5.9% and the S&P 500 is down 3%.  I'm beating the index by 8.9% so far this year

Since starting in March 2008 I'm up 8.6% while the S&P 500 is down 19.9%.

I didn't trade much this past month.   I sold off some of my BPT & CVX in order to cash in some profits.  I also sold my UMH when it hit $11.83.   I figured at a 6% dividend yield that was the max I thought I would hold it for.   I gained 50% on that position not counting dividends.
