Another good month. All markets saw a significant increase – anywhere from 2.5% to 4.3%. On a YTD basis markets are up anywhere between 5% and 18%.
My Canadian portfolio is ahead of the market with a 2.65% gain on the month for a YTD gain of 8.7%. My US portfolio continues to lag the major markets as I have no exposure to the hot US financial stocks and I have a couple of under-performing holdings. But I still have a gain of 10% YTD.
