Twitter Top 10 Holds Up

By | October 3, 2014

The Twitter Top 10 portfolio held up reasonably well this month. It was only down a bit over 1% while the S&P 500 Index is down about 2%. Since the portfolio often holds momentum stocks it usually under performs when the market falls. That didn’t happen this month and suggests that market participants are still taking on risk.

The stocks that fell the most last month were Achillion Pharmaceuticals (ACHN) down 17.5% and JC Penney (JCP) down over 8%. The largest gainers were Bank of America (BAC) up 7.5% and Twitter (TWTR) up 6.5%.

On the first Friday of every month we change the stocks held in the portfolio by selecting the 10 stocks that had the most support on Twitter over the previous month. Below are the most bullish stocks.
