Beating the S&P 500

Written by Donnie Nguyen

April 13, 2019

The S&P 500 rose 0.51% this week and remains just 1.14% below all-time highs.

Our March stock of the month pick, JPMorgan (JPM), rose 5.6% this week after reporting record revenue and net income for the first quarter of 2019. 

Disney (DIS), our February stock of the month pick, rose 13.1% this week. They announced that they will be launching their highly anticipated Disney+ streaming services in the U.S. on November 12, 2019 at $6.99/month or $69.99 annually.

This also marks the first week that our Stock of the Month picks have beaten the S&P 500. I hope to keep this streak alive for a very long time. Tune in next week for our April pick.

There haven’t been any changes to my long-term strategy. As the S&P 500 reaches new highs, I still plan to keep about 25% cash in my individual stock portfolios and wait for another buying opportunity. 

My mutual fund portfolios are 100% in stocks since I have a 20+ year time horizon. I continue to dollar-cost average into them.
