During our Q4 ‘Granny Shots’ rebalancing we removed four stocks as they no longer best represented our strategic and tactical investing themes in their respective categories. We added two companies for our Seasonality tactical investing theme and our Style-tilt toward Value/Cyclicals. We added a third company because it meets out style-tilt investment theme criteria and we also expect it to be a beneficiary of the strong PMI recovery we see underway. The performance of our portfolio is measured in an equally weighted fashion between rebalancing periods. We will continually update our subscribers through e-mail and website updates any time there is a major change in the underlying investment themes that dictate our additions and subtractions to this high-performing portfolio.
During our Q4 ‘Granny Shots’ Rebalancing we removed BorgWarner Inc., CF Industries Holdings, Inc., HP Inc., and Proctor & Gamble Company. We also added three new companies. Intel Corporation was added based on meeting the criteria for two of our tactical portfolios, ‘The New Seasonality’ and our style-tilt toward Quality Value names. We added Omnicom Group Inc., because it also meets the criteria for these two tactical portfolios. W.W. Grainger Inc, Inc. was added because it also goes in our currently value-centric style-tilt portfolio. We also added this firm because we think it is the type of company to do well during a PMI recovery. So, there you have it. Our three additions for Q4 are all additions to our Tactical portfolios.
