Again in 2014 I will update the new portfolio on a monthly basis. January was a tough month for stocks. Although BI is down just like the market, it was down less than the S&P500. As a result, BI is starting off the year with a slight lead.Performance Summary: Benchmark return year to date = -1.4%SPY Total return year to date –3.2%Difference vs. SPY = +1.8 pct ptsDOW BI Selection Process: As was the case for 2013, no individual companies in the Dow meet all the BI selection criteria in order to be chosen as a Long pick for 2014. Across the entire DOW 30 stocks, only Pfizer and Cisco are trading below their downside price targets. However, even these stocks do not meet all other BI selection criterion. In fact, neither choice has positive earnings prospects. Staying true to the BI method, all three of the 2013 will be held because each of them still has greater upside than the overall market’s potential. Therefore, the 2014 BI portfolio will continue to hold the same stocks as it did in 2013, which are Cisco, DuPont, and Microsoft.AllTooFoolish's CAPS Portfolio: If you are interested in seeing this method applied to a broader universe of stocks, follow my actively managed portfolio in the Fool CAPS section.
