The PiggyBankBuilder Portfolio Challenge – February Results

Another month in the books and I am feeling pretty good. How did I do? Let’s look at my results:

  • Krogers (KR) – Purchase price – $63.53, number of shares 23. Current Price: $69.98 a gain of $148.35
  • Microsoft (MSFT) – Purchase price $46.76, number of 32. Current Price: $43.28, a loss of $111.36
  • iShares Silver Trust (SLV) – Purchase price $15.11, number of shares 99. Current Price: $15.57 a gain of $45.54
  • BlackBerry (BBRY) - Purchase price $10.82, number of shares 138, Current Price $10.96 a gain of $19.32

February saw a stock market recovery and the portfolio benefited nicely. 2015 stockIt is now up $101.85 or 2% ! A year back my portfolio was up only about 40 bucks, so this is a sizable improvement. 

Krogers continues to be a steady grower and BlackBerry just released a new crop of phones that look very impressive. Looking towards the next month its hard for me to say where things are going. The market is at all time highs and investors seem happy. That makes me a little nervous, the market has been going strong for over 6 years. Sooner or later things will change.
