Continuing with the rebalance. I hope to have my 2018 portfolio set up by the end of next week.

I executed the below trades this morning:

Buy 21 shares of CTB @ $34.75

Buy 405 shares of BGFV @ $7.48

Buy 465 shares of FRAN @ $6.64

Sell 37 shares of VLO @ $86.78

Sell 150 shares of AEO @ $17.38

Sell 40 shares of DDS @ $57.58

Sell 22 shares of FL @ $44.72 (reducing the position back down to $3,000. The position grew by 1/3 since I bought it in September)

NHTC, SCS, IESC

The rebalance has begun! I sold the below positions this morning.

I’ll start deploying the cash next week.

My goal is to be fully invested by the start of 2018 in a new portfolio of undervalued securities. I will likely sell most of my positions. I plan on keeping GME, FL, CTB, PCO and possibly KELYA.

NHTC – Sold 103 shares @ $17.27

SCS – Sold 144 shares @ $14.50

IESC – Sold 129 shares @ $18.80 (I was lucky with one, it started sliding after I got out)

EIS and BLD

The momentum appears to be over in TopBuild (BLD) and the valuation is rich, so I sold today at $61.38. This secures a 61% gain from my purchase price of $37.91.

I also purchased 25 shares of an iShares Israeli ETF, EIS at $48.33.
