Investing Update for the Week Ending August 05, 2022

Friday August 5, 2022

It has been another week of very few stocks passing my screens with the net result that I only had one equity trade.

Valero Energy (VLO – Shares Purchased)

I purchased shares in VLO which represented 6.7% of my portfolio dedicated to equities and tactical asset allocation.


Tactical Asset Allocations

Compared to last week, this week’s weightings have a lower allocation to cash and higher allocations to US equities and bonds.

Investing Update for the Week Ending July 29, 2022

Friday July 29, 2022

With the prices of many asset classes increasing recently, it was expected that the cash allocation in my models would fall as allocations were made to various asset classes. As you will see in the table further down in this post, allocations were made this week to both bond and equity ETFs.

I have added the Horizons ReSolve Adaptive Asset Allocation (HRAA) ETF to my weekly chart which shows the performance of a 60/40 portfolio, my tactical asset allocation portfolio and now HRAA. As far as I know, HRAA is the only adaptive asset allocation ETF of its kind. For me, it is very important to know how my investing methodology stacks up against a professionally managed ETF with a similar approach.


July 29

Cenovus Energy (CVE – Shares Purchased)

I purchased CVE at $19.12. The value of the long CVE position was 3% of my portfolio and the stop I will use results in this trade presenting a 0.34% risk.
