The PiggyBankBuilder Portfolio Challenge – April Results

Recovery or into the red? Let’s crunch the numbers:

  • Krogers (KR) – Purchase price – $63.53, number of shares 23. Current Price: $69.80  a gain of $144.21
  • Microsoft (MSFT) – Purchase price $46.76, number of 32. Current Price: $46.28, a loss of $15.36
  • iShares Silver Trust (SLV) – Purchase price $15.11, number of shares 99. Current Price: $15.77 a gain of $65.34
  • BlackBerry (BBRY) - Purchase price $10.82, number of shares 138, Current Price $9.80 a loss of $140.76

I am holding on by my fingernails. The portfolio is up $53.43, a miniscule improvement over last month.  question-mark-1409010-mThe biggest loser this month was Krogers? My hero stock, my champion? It backslid into the 60’s. This appears to be a consolidation, at least that is my hope.

Microsoft’s recovery is going according to plan. Silver did literally nothing. It’s possible that silver is basing here. BlackBerry flirted with the 10’s earlier last week, I am optimistic that it could see 11 in May.

My caution from last month remains. My May prediction, that the portfolio will be up $200 dollars by June. My previous guess was 100 bucks shy of its mark. Perhaps I will do better this month.
