Buys/Sells for Monday 28th July 2014

P Hybrid Sell MQG, Buy AWE
P Runner Sell JHX, Buy NHF

Taking dividend & small capital gain profit in MQG & small capital loss in JHX (but got the dividend.)

I'm buying NHF for P Runner as I already hold it in P Hybrid & it's good to hold the same stocks in both portfolios as it makes for a more valid comparison of both methods. Plus it's as good as anything else I was considering like APN or ALL.
AWE looks to be resuming an uptrend after a pullback
AWE:ASX 200 Small Ords
Energy. Energy. Oil, Gas & Consumable Fuels. Oil & Gas Exploration & Production
Hasn't paid a dividend since Dec 2011 but the P Hybrid exit is more suited to faster stocks than the slower dividend paying stocks.

Buys/Sells for Mon 14th July 2014

P Hybrid sell BPT,  buy CSR
No changes in P Runner

I still have CSR in P Runner, got stopped out in May in P Hybrid (at about 20% profit), so will buy back in as it has good momentum & is running up again after divesting it's dividend in June.
P Hybrid has a stop approx half as wide as P Runner (on average - it varies) so tends to get stopped out in the slower moving  trends. It suits strong trends best, so the dividend is not so important in stock selection.
