20200421T Day 112: Surfing Towards A More Diversified Stock Portfolio


The stock market is still quite volatile, as evidenced by the daily movement in my top 6 stock picks: AAPL, IBM, WETF, SLV, AMD, and SFM. This is definitely not as diversified a list as I would like, with 3 technology companies in the mix. However, it is much better than it was 6 months ago when it was all in AAPL and AMD at about a 75%/25% mix. In December and January, I sold some AAPL and AMD and waited for the coronavirus crash before buying or adding to positions in IBM, WETF, SLV, and SFM. My mix is now 44%/20%/14%/11%/6%/5%. From a diversification point of view, I feel much better. My average price for these stocks are $1.23, $109.20, $3.50, $14.25, $10.00, and $16.48.

I would like to be in a universe in which there is an app, program, or website that will give me a summary financial report of my stock holdings. As a website, I would send up some JSON such as:

{ “AAPL” : 0.44, “IBM”: 0.2, “WETF”: 0.14, “SLV”: 0.11, “AMD”: 0.06, “SFM”: 0.05 }

and get back a combined set of financial parameters such as P/E, Cash Flow, Market Cap, etc. Mutual funds, especially a commodity fund like SLV, would likely need to be ignored.
