Twitter Top 10 Holding Up

By | August 8, 2014

The Twitter Top 10 portfolio is holding up relatively well to start the month. Most of the stocks have small losses or small gains. El Pollo Loco (LOCO) is the big loser down over 11%. LOCO’s price swings this week is another reason why we don’t recommend simply buying any list of stocks, including this one, blindly. Since this is a totally mechanical screen LOCO was included, but personally I like to let IPOs shake out before making any decisions. Although traders on Twitter love the stock, it takes time and price movement to settle their emotions so a prudent investor would wait for the wild swings to end and then make an evaluation.

Below is a performance chart and details of this month’s holdings.
