129. September 2017 Portfolio update

What happened last month? A new strategy on the pursuit to diversification automatically results in more changes in the portfolio. This month there’s even an all new chart to join the circus: Portfolio diversification by sector of operations.

Knowledge is power. A thought supposedly initiated by Sir Francis Bacon, little did he know on how true this statement is when looking at markets today.
Portfolio details

Since last month, quite something has changed. There’s some new joiners for both speculative and dividend purposes in the list. Especially I wanted to expand in the EURO direction of the trades. As with previous posts on this subject: the portfolio Heavyweights: (positions >700Euros).

When grouped together in sectors, it should become visible how much exposure and actual diversification (sector-wise) exists in today’s list. First of all, now how many sectors are there? And which ones? Google. Apparently there is no such thing as ONE list? I’ve compiled this one myself:

1
Financials
2
Utilities
3
Consumer Discretionary
4
Consumer Staples
5
Energy
6
Health Care
7
Industrials
8
(Information) Technology
9
Telecom
10
Materials
11
Real estate

The full description of these sectors are in my tracking sheet to make sure I’m working within my own rules. At least, it works for now. I believe the following chart to be fairly accurate:

As stated in one of my earlier blog posts, Financials is quite a significant portion here. That might just be something to consider when shopping around in the near future. The new joiner of last week in this list is the Telecom sector, now taking a 2.2% where before this month there was none. This may just be another great tool to assess how healthy my investment strategy is.

If you have a minute, don’t hesitate to fill me in on your thoughts / opinions. Some good (and free) advice is always welcome. If you feel like connecting and sharing: please hit the Google+ follow button or find/follow me on twitter!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
