Hello QAV Light Brigade

It’s Monday and this is my weekly report. Welcome to our new subscribers!

The AORD had another dismal week.

As I said to someone this week, I think everyone is feeling the pain and I’m sure some are questioning the whole idea of investing. But the options, as I see them, are:

1) Capitulation, pull your capital out, put it in the bank/bond/ETF, and be content with average returns for the rest of your life or wait for the market to improve;

2) Find a better investing strategy than QAV (and if you find one, let me TK and I know);

3) Improve QAV somehow (and TK would love that, I’m sure);

4) Hang in there, follow the rules, and wait it out.

The problem with capitulation is that we know that the majority of the big gains come when you are fully invested on certain spike days, and they usually come during a downturn, so if I pull out, I’m going to miss out on those. 

Keeping an eye on the big picture helps, I think. We’re in this for the long term.

DISCLOSURE

In the interest of full disclosure, we would like to advise that, as of the date of this email, the QAV team currently hold these stocks in their personal portfolios:

ANZ BPT FHE FPR JHG NHC QBE RMS VEA VUK WAM WHC KAR BPT SSM WDS WHC WGX

Please note that our personal holdings might not include the stocks we recommend in QAV Light. This is because we already have full portfolios (15-20 stocks) and can only add new stocks if we have to sell something.

If you’re interested in learning more, please review our trading and disclosure policy.

 

FOR NEW MEMBERS

If you’re new to QAV Light, here’s a quick reminder on how it works.

    1. We send you an email every Monday advising which stocks we are adding to our Light portfolio.
    2. You can copy our trades, but please remember to review our Trading Guidelines to understand which cap you should be looking at and other important considerations. And consult a financial planner before making any decisions.
    3. We don’t recommend that you add stocks which are already in our portfolio. Their position on our buy list might have changed since we recommended them. Just start with the stocks recommended after you become a member.
    4. If one of the stocks we add breaches one of our sell conditions, we will sell it from our portfolio and you’ll get an email advising of the trade. Again, you can copy our trades, but seek financial advice before making any decisions. And please check your Rule #1 price (see Trading Guidelines).
    5. If you have any questions about our terminology (eg “3PTL”, “Rule 1”, “Possibles”, etc), please first refer to our QAV Terminology page, and if you have further questions, just email Cameron.

     

    That’s it for today!

    If we decide to buy or sell something, we’ll let you know.
