Dirty Dozen, Long Only Portfolio, End of March 2017

Added on by C. Maoxian.

I'm going to apply the same trend-following system that I use for my ETF Trading Portfolio to these dozen popular stocks. Sharp readers will notice that there are currently only 11 stocks in the portfolio, so I'm looking for reader suggestions for the twelfth stock (Chipotle maybe?). These are the eleven I came up with so far:

  1. Alphabet (Google)
  2. Amazon
  3. Amgen
  4. Apple
  5. Facebook
  6. Gilead
  7. Netflix
  9. Starbucks
  10. Tesla
  11. Twitter

Unlike the ETF Trading Portfolio, this is a long-only portfolio ... when a stock flips short, I simply close the long position and go to cash. You can see that Facebook and Tesla are the most recent positions put on in April and February, respectively.  I plan to update this table at every month end.
